Done!

Not since Terry Pendleton's infamous home run off Roger McDowell in 1987 have the Mets suffered such a crippling regular season defeat. This was the knockout blow ladies and gentlemen. The season will now evaporate. There is no way they will recover. Pessimistic? Absolutely. Realist? Yes. The only advice I have for you MetsLifers is to prepare for it now rather than later. Doing so will soften the blow when Philly finally does rip past this underachieving team. And let's be honest, does anyone really think that this Mets club can win a championship with this bullpen? Not a chance. By the way, where the heck was Wagner? When did he get injured?

And David Wright, I love ya, you're an awesome player, but you can't...you absolutely cannot make an error in that spot. It's simply inexcusable and I am sorry but MVPs just don't make those plays in big games like this. And something tells me that David would agree with that. No question about it. Wright, who had three more hits tonight, incredibly turns into the goat. Had he made that play, we'd be singing a different tune tonight and the blog universe, talk shows and newspapers would all be talking about the Great Marlon Anderson. What a damn shame...

So this is it. The 2007 NY Mets will go down as one of the all-time great chokers in baseball history.

I know that David Wright was kicking himself all night about that play. Marvelous Marlon strikes again only to have the bullpen implode.

Wish I could argue with this post, but I can't.
