The Mets will be in new confines when the play in Atlanta tonight but will the ghosts of Turner Field’s past continue to haunt them?

At the end of the Amityville Horror, George Lutz and his family are able to escape the house that proved to be the site of psychological and supernatural phenomena. As he carried the family dog to his 1970s style minivan, George jumps in the driver’s seat and speeds off. The house was, in fact, haunted and threatened the Lutz Family in more ways than one. Ultimately, everything went wrong for them as soon as they moved in.

As a Mets fan, it is safe to convey the theme of the haunted house used in horror movies to sports. In this instance, the idea of Turner Field serving as a haunted house for the Mets is not far off from reality.

Since 1997, the boys from Queens have been forced to play in the creepy confines of the home of the Atlanta Braves and it hasn’t been good. Now that the Braves opened a brand new ballpark, SunTrust Park, all of us are hoping that the Mets, like the Lutzes, left their horrors behind.
