Now, let’s talk World Series.

Yes, I’m still heartbroken over the 2015 World Series, and the 2016 Wild Card obviously did not make it any better. Will 2017 be the year to change all this? We still have unfinished business to finish.

Mets fans, it took us a while to get over it (jk let’s be real, we’re still not over it), and it took Alderson a while to get over it as well (jk he’s still not over it either).

"“I don’t think one ever gets over the sting of losing a World Series (chuckle). I lost a couple in the 1980s, and I’m still not over that. I certainly have never acquiesced in the notion that Kansas City is a better team. They played better than we did during that period of time when it was critical, but we had our chances, and it could have gone the other way. But it didn’t.”"

Next: Conforto is ready to bounce back

Oh, and Alderson wants a World Series.

"“It would be gratifying for all of us in the organization, especially to be able to do it here in New York City largely because I know how much it would mean to Mets fans here in New York, ’cause I know how much they cherish their memories of 1986, and in some cases 1969. It would be great to make that a trifecta.”"

1986 memories? 1969 memories? I unfortunately have neither as I was not born until after this. I’d like some happy World Series memories too, because right now all of mine are sad.

Let’s make this trifecta happen.
