Default The METS!

I can't believe what I am seeing! Never have I seen a pro sports team choke this badly. I thought the last two weeks of thier schedule would have been a layup for them. They are getting beat by Wash. and Fla. for god sake! The bullpen is a disgrace. Up 3 runs in the 9th, and they can't close it! Watching them fall apart is killing me! The only thing worse, is that I am a NY Giants fan! This is going to be a real crappy sports year for me. Watch! The Rangers will go wire to wire, only to get knocked out in the first round, I can see it already.

Buckner was one play in one game. The ALCS was bad, I'll give you that. But this, this has been going on for weeks now.

Exclamation Re: The METS!

I don't know if they are really choking. I watched the game last night in Florida, they weren't playing the field very well but they scored 4 runs in the 9th to take the lead. Then the bullpen gave it up and allowed the Marlins to tie it up.

Pitching, pitching, pitching, pitching, pitching...........

Watched Willie's post game interview, he was saying all the right words but you could see he was devastated. It was a terrible loss.

The bad thing is if they don't win the division they may not get in the playoffs as the wildcard unless the Padres cool off. The Yankees have 10 games left, they can just play .500 baseball and get the wildcard. I will be very happy with that but I would really like to see them win the division, coming back from 14.5 games down to the RedSux would be as legendary as the Boston Massacre.

I really want to see the Cubs and Mets in the NLCS!

Tom Glavin was and is a BRAVE at heart. It figures he'd stink up the joint

Remember, "momentum" in baseball is as good as the next day's pitcher.

When the Mets are 10 over .500 in May and the Yanks are struggling next year, will the Mets (and their fans) remember it's what happens in September that counts??!?

God, I hope so! A-HOLES dancing around because they hit a homerun when they are up 8-0. They made me sick this weekend. I can see how ,it is easy to root against this team, if you are not a Met fan.(I am) Reyes(Willie Mays Hayes!) and Milledge dancing around like a bunch of fools, Delgado also.These jackasses just lost what 7 or 8 games in a row at home not to mention the NL east lead! And they are stupid enough to start doing this scripted dance on the top step of the dug out when they go up 9-0. Classless Punks. You would never see a Yankee player pulling that crap! I hope they clean house this winter.
