Fact: The Mets Are Mediocre
My counterpart has often posted how he feels the Mets are mediocre. There's now actual hard data that proves it.
According to Dan Graziano in an article in the Star Ledger, the Mets are 71-71 since June 1, 2007.
Wow. You don't get more mediocre than a .500 record. It's pitiful really. And if memory serves correctly on June 1 of last year the Mets had a double digit lead over the second place Phillies. Maybe it was an 8 game lead, but still that's how bad this team has played the last two seasons.
Graziano's article is a good one and talks about how Mets brass is going to reassess Willie Randolph, the team, etc. at the end of the month.
Hmmm, I hear a tune. . . a change will do you good. . .
