Recently there have been a few articles about two people waking up in the morgue after being pronounced dead, one was an older person, who lived to tell the story, the other was an infant who died the next day. I was thinking that that is was similar to the Mets season, everyone declared them dead and they were alive. Saturday afternoon, I thought that the Mets were like the man who is still alive, Sunday they resembled the dead infant.
TC had to make eight player moves in the eighth inning alone..
Mets lost Murphy for the season, and Reyes for who knows how long. This has to be one of the toughest Met losses I can remember.
Angel Pagan and Jason Bay put the nail in coffin last night. What in God’s name were they doing swinging at the first pitch that they see?
Last nights game was as much of a must win game as any I can remember. From this point forward if they want to be able to even sniff the gas out of the leaders ass, they need to play .600 ball or better. In addition, the Braves, Phillies and Diamondbacks need to play right at or below .500. I am no math wizard, nor am I a gambling expert, it appears that the odds of that happening are pretty slim.
The Mets played so well in Cincy, the made everything look easy, and they looked like they were having fun. Las night, I half expected to see Jerry back a the helm they had that defeated look that they had almost all of last season. In addition, they did nothing to help themselves win the game.
Reyes is hitting fly balls again, he needs to hit line drives again. He is swinging at bad pitches again, and seems to be playing with out the fire he had before he hurt his hamstring. Wright is playing some of the best ball in two years, (outside of his throwing) and he has given the Mets a chance several times since he cam back from the DL.
They need to beat the Braves more than ever before, and Beltran can help his old team, and his new one at the same time by getting by winning the next two games against the phucking Phillies.
Last week I was explaining to a non sport loving friend how frustrating and exciting this season has been. If in a few thousand years, the fossiled remains of the last two weeks are discovered, one would be able to learn all they would need to know about the 2011 Mets.
They won five in a row, followed by four losses.
After putting the team ahead with his bat, Daniel Murphy will put them away with his brain.
Jonathon Niese will be pitching a gem, and in an instant fall apart.
Someone will throw to the wrong base, or try to stretch a single into a double with two out in the bottom of the ninth, or make the first out at third.
Bases loaded, no one out will yield a double play and a deep fly out.
The starting pitchers will be wonderful, and the pen will throw a bucket of rotting dead fish onto their masterpiece.
One inning they will fill the stadium with electricity, and the next, they will short circuit.
2011 is one of the best, and one of the worst seasons. And I thought I stopped riding roller coasters years ago.
