This is ridiculous. This is beyond ridiculous, it's painful. No painful is too soft a word, this is torturous. I think this is what they do to the prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. They make them watch these Mets games.
No lead is safe. No team is too weak to mount a comeback. But when you think about it is it really surprising that we lost last night? Here are the facts:
-We were playing at home in which we have a worse record than when we play on the road
-We were playing the Nationals who have beat us 13 out of the last 14 times they've played us in September
-We had a lead early which we've had the past 2 games and blown them all in a blaze of glory
-We had a starting pitcher who's never started a game in his life and we trusted him to save this team from destruction
Add that all together and it's no wonder we lost. The only highlight was seeing El Duque return to the mound and get out of an inning. That and Moises Alou destroying every pitcher he faces to extend his hit streak to 30 games.
The Mets are on life support my fellow Mets Lifers. The question is when will they pull the plug?
