As I headed to the post office yesterday they were covering the swimming pool in my development for the winter. What a coincidence, the Mets were officially eliminated from the NL East race last night as their offense produced yet another run.
This is an incredible scoring drought, as bad as any I’ve seen for a team I covered. Terry Collins switched the time of BP. He said later he was grasping for straws and he was right. It’s all mental now.
If they can manage to give R.A. Dickey at least three tonight he has a chance to win his 19th game. I’d love to see him get 20, I really would. At the same time, when you’re reduced to pulling for individual stats that’s really a sign summer is over as there is nothing left to cheer for team wise.
They won’t have a winning record and at this rate the Mets will finish with a worst record than last year and that’s a gloomy thought.
