"Opening day is a month away, and the Mets are already falling apart"

Signs. Portents. An irresistible opportunity for me to get in my recommended daily allowance of Mets bashing:

Opening day is a month away, and the Mets are already falling apart.

A giant piece of the marquee Citi Field sign came crashing down on Jan.
25 — more evidence for beleaguered Met fans that the sky really is
falling.

The cover of the sign’s C flew off and plummeted
nearly 200 feet to the empty seats below, sources said. The sign towers
over center field and is the centerpiece of the year-old stadium. Photos provided to The Post show the 15-foot-long, 35-pound acrylic
sheeting landed in a field-level section to the right of the sign.

“Once it hit the ground, it shattered into a bunch of pieces,” a team insider told The Post.

Despite the obvious damage, Mets doctors say the sign is doing just fine and will be ready to go by opening day.
