the Onion has been the bright spot in an otherwise very dark day. The article is entitled Struggling Mets Combine Forces to form Carlos Voltron, and in the doom and gloom days of September it's good to laugh every once in a while.
The best part is the closing paragraph which reads:
"Meanwhile, defending a comfortable 600-0 lead in the top of ninth, the Mets decided to rest up Carlos Voltron by moving him to the outfield and replacing him with reliever Aaron Heilman, who lost the lead and eventually the game after giving up 618 runs to close the inning."
Funny, but with a hint of realism. Check it out by clicking here.
