They will do as the Mets do. They will continually drag us in by great play, then rip our hearts out over losses like these past few games. It is a vicious cycle, one that I am all too used to being a Cowboys fan.
Coming into today, I let it be known that this series scared me and be prepared for a letdown. I am in no way giving up, kind of expected this because we play down to opponents levels quite often. Flash-back to the Astros, same thing happened and we bounced back.
That being said, I had a feeling we would lose 2 out of 3 in Chicago and the pitch-forks would come out. But, I also think we win the series in LA in convincing fashion, maybe even sweep. That is just the way it goes with this club.
Whatever the prognosis, I am ready for a fun and bumpy ride as long as this team does not give up completely.
Just a hangover from the weekend. I too had the same amount of enthusiam yesterday following the weekend.
I righted my ship today, and expect them to do the same.
Were going to see games like that from time to time....overall though, the team will continue to play well.
We desperately need bullpen help, and a righty bat. Not so sure either of those two had very much responsibility in last nights loss.
These are not the old Mets which used to have talent but no pitching or BP.
These Mets have great starting pitching but no BP or real everyday players aside from Wright and Tejada.
The BP that has been killing us for years is still a mess yet our starters have kept us above 500.
We had a very good team with top shelf talent in Reyes and Beltran but now we're relying on a bunch of unproven talent that is currently being exposed.
Teams know to not let Wright beat them so he doesn't get anything good to hit. Duda who was supposed to supply the power has been hitting singles and Ike is just now starting to show some signs of life.
The Mets must have a contending team by next year or they will be wasting the good years left from Santana and Dickey. If they don't have a good team next year, they might as well trade Dickey, Santana and Wright.
Season is over.
