The Braves in town in late September was supposed to mean something. For the Mets, beating their long-time foe and finishing the over .500 could help salvage what has become a disappointing season. For the struggling Braves, they need to wake-up if they are to make the playoffs in Bobby Cox’s last season.

As the Mets seek to rebuild next season, one of the cornerstones will be outfielder Angel Pagan. For those who are waiting for Pagan to stumble, keep waiting because it doesn’t look as if it would happen. Pagan did have a poor stretch, but has rebounded and is finishing strong and is the Mets’ MVP.

New Chat Room; Should’ve meant something.

Greetings. It’s September and there’s a fall nip in the air that forewarns of a pennant race. The Philadelphis Phillies are in for a three-game series and this was supposed to be a special weekend. Instead, we have the Mets, a sliding team on the field and a fractured, disjointed team off it waiting for the season to end.

There’s a sadness with the end of the baseball team as it represents the end of summer, the briskness of fall that leads us into the unrelenting winter. Emotionally. the end of season represents the death of a dream of a promise for so much more.
