After Thursday night's loss to the Marlins, I started to feel a little nostalgic, and that's not a good thing. These 2010 Mets are giving me flashbacks of 2009.
The pure lack of any decent swings with runners in scoring position. The wasted opportunities. Sacrifice bunts get screwed up. A great pitching performance is wasted by the bullpen. Franceour can't get a hit to save his life.
It's not time to panic quite yet. It's still May, but the road the Mets are taking is one that has been traveled before. You may recall that at the end of May last year the Mets were 7 games over .500. That's right 7. But then the wheels fell apart.
The Mets made a spectacular run in April, but May has brought a few bright moments along with plenty of disappointment. Watching Ike and the Animal is fun for a while, but winning is a whole lot more interesting.
