Mets are blowing it severely. Honestly though, I'm not the biggest of fans - but everyone in my household is - and this is good news for me as playoff baseball won't have priority on the big screen HDTV over Rangers Hockey.......

truly pathetic.

yea, Steve Somers was saying a couple nights ago that they've blown 26 leads, 11 in the 9th, something like that, yes, its pathetic, but the fact that we're only 2 1/2 back is truly amazing.

You just know these last 6 games are going to be painful to watch. This is the same exact thing as last year...people trying to stay confident, the team saying all the right things....and when the game starts, they will find another way to lose. Starter will give it up, bullpen will blow a lead, offense won't show up.

only this time it was a 7 game lead...it was simply 3, and they really shouldn't have ever been in this situation with how they played the first 2 months of the season.

I have only two things to say to all of you die-hard Mets fans:

"If you like sports...come veezeet my eye-lend..."

and

"Puerto Rico is-a homegrown"


That commercial is awesome.

you know, I can't keep saying "we're going to make it" when they don't win games.

Can't even blame the bullpen for that one. Man on third 0 outs in the bottom of the ninth and you can't get him in? Wow thats terrible.

Yes, leaving all of bases stranded in the 9th inning with 1 out in a tie game that they must win. Blowing a 5-1 lead while the Phillies were losing a rare game to Atlanta. Allowing three runs, all after TWO OUTS in the 10th inning to basically end it....

All hope is lost.

Mets tied in WC now.

Brewers have PIT,CHC,CHC,CHC (353-276)
Mets have CHC,FLA,FLA,FLA (342-289)

Mets have the easier of the two closing series. They have the better shot unless the Brewers really turn it on in that last series against Chicago. Mets just don't have to choke. Both teams are at home though.

The thing you have to worry about though is that the Cubs have nothing to play for while the Marlins love playing spoiler (just look at last year). Although even with nothing to play for, the Cubs played pretty hard tonight.

Cubs also pretty much control who they want to play. If they want to play the Mets, they win all 3 games against the Brewers (of course it's not THAT easy, but you get the idea). If they want to play the Brewers, they lose. Of course you don't want to give the team you're playing in the first round too much confidence that they can beat you, but whatever.

The Cubs can't play the Brewers in the first round. The wild card winner can not play a team from their own division in the first round.

I'm a Yanks fan, but I root for the Mets, my interest is in seeing NY beat other cities like LA, Philly, etc.

But man, two late season failures two years in a row - can they NOW stop using the term 'the Amazins' !!???? Like my cousin says, 'Whats so ****in amazin' about winning 1 world series the last 30+ years!?'

We definately have earned the term amazins. Have you ever seen a team blow trips to the playoffs in such grandiose style two years in a row. It truly is Amazing.

It is also amazing that Minaya thought Alou, El Duque, and castillo would be healthy and productive.

That last night we had a man on third w/ no outs in each of the last 3 innings and only scored once, on a bases loaded walk.

That our bullpen could be so brutal last year and us not upgrade it.
That our bullpen is actually worse than last years.

and finally, that we are still actually in contention w/ such a bad/awful/deadly/im gonna shoot myself type of bullpen.

Yankees have the same record as the Mets and Brewers right now. I know its not the same league and all, just sayin, the Yanks were not that far off from where they usually end up - in the playoffs.

Yep, the Yankees would be in first in two other divisions and not far out in the NL East either. And they are actually about the same as last year, however there were no Rays to worry about last season, and that's the difference.



The Mets beat the Iowa Cubs tonight. Clearly a game that the Cubs didn't have much interest in, but you have to give the Mets credit for making the comeback.

So this weekend sets up the exact same scenario as last year: Phils play 3 with the Nats, Mets play 3 with the Marlins. Phils are a game up instead of tied like last year, should be an interesting weekend.
