OT: Another fun September for the Blue and Orange

So Met fans......we are now no longer in first place! We were just shut out by the Nationals, and Odalis Perez! Last night...John Lannan! Tomorrow night....Brandon Knight pitches for us and Washington is throwing a rookie...we all know how well we fare against those guys!

and the Phillies are getting clutch hit after clutch hit. At least we'll save some money on our playoff tickets.


ugh

After the Cubs sweep the Brewers they'll be due for a letdown, the Mets will take 3 from them. Couldn't be a better time to play em.

The Mets will still make the playoffs. The Brewers have completely fallen apart to the point where they pulled a Lou Lamoriello and fired their manager with 2 weeks to go. They may not win the division, but I expect both them and the Phillies to be there when everything's over.

Honestly I'm at a loss for words.

The Phillies might be gone. They know how to win in the last 3 weeks of September, but come playoffs they can't do anything.

Hopefully the Brewers outchoke the Mets but who knows.

The thing is, Saturday's loss was bad. Sunday's loss was worse. But its nothing we haven't dealt with already this season. We've recovered.

This time, we haven't. These last 2 losses have been 2007-esque.

Brandon Knight tomorrow, I'd say screw it and move up Santana since its a must win, but does it really matter if we can't hit the Nats pitchers?

Ehhh...I was switching back and forth and after I saw the Chicago pitcher hit a grand slam, I didn't bother.

Season is over folks,accept it and move on.On the positive side, another September swoon will hopefully mean the end of Omar "You know what I'm sayin'?" Minaya.

Dude.....we are not making it. Brew crew are facing the Pirates, who they happen to be 11-1 against this season.

With Pedro out of gas, the offense taking the rest of the day off after scoring a run or two early and the bullpen incapable of holding virtually any lead the chances of any kind of post season success for the Mets are slim to none.

How many times can you get two men on with less than two outs and fail to score?

How many times have we seen the bases loaded and nothing plated?

How many times have we seen pitchers leave with a lead only to end up losing as the bullpen spits the bit...again.Santana alone should have 20 wins but for the utter ineptitude of the bullpen.

If by some miracle they do secure the wild card, they run right into the Cubs and that is a quick over and out series for the Mets.

Negative? You bet,but watching this team absolutely fail to get it done the past three years has made me more than a little cynical.From Beltran looking at strike three two years ago to the historic collapse of last year to this years epic bullpen fail, nothing this team does or doesn't do surprises me anymore.

Mets are screwed. They play the Cubs three more times and with the way the Mets are playing, that's going to kill them (it's already hard enough to beat the Cubs). This gives Milwaukee some time to make up that game that they're down. They're just lucky that they finish out against Florida (who's not too bad of a team either) while the Brewers finish off against the Cubs. That'll give them their only chance unless Milwaukee bombs against the crappy Pirates.

Either way doesn't matter to me. I'm not a Mets fan, but it's interesting to see unfold.

We'll get the Wild Card, face the Cubs, and exact our revenge. Unfortunately, we do not have the starting, middle relief, or closers to do much of anything this year. If K-Rod is not a priority for Minaya, I'll be stunned.

take a look at this article to see just how atrocious our bullpen is. it truly is amazing.

if games were only 6 innings long we would be up by 11 1/2 games over Philly.
if games were only 8 innings long we would be up by 6 1/2 games over Philly.

Instead were were 1 1/2 games behind Philly when this article was written.

truly pathetic.

Both the Mets & Yankees wouldve made the wildcard if they were healthy.

We have given up two grand slams to pitchers this year. Good times.

Nothing would make me MORE happy as a baseball hater than both NY teams lose 100 games. Baseball is a corrupt & morally bankerupt sport. And I don't wanna here crap about how other sports are ALSO corrupt & morally bankerupt. It took a STEROID induced home run derby in 1998 to bring the fans back from the '94 strike. Baseball players were doing steroids and EVERYONE (Selig, owners, PA, & fans) looked the other way. What does that tell ya???
