Good evening my fellow Mets fans. So there is less than a week to go in this wretched stinking carcass that is the 2009 Mets season and all I can say is WHAT TOOK SO LONG !!!!! From the dropped fly balls by Murph ( sans the Murph Tones) To “Slappy” Castillio forgetting how to use two hands when catching a pop up, to Ryan Church forgetting that you have to touch third base in order to score a run ( let’s not even get into the so many injuries that the Aflac Duck has whiplash)this season has turned out to be a lesson in futility- but you know what? WE ARE METS FANS !!!! WE HOPE FOR THE BEST AND EXPECT THE WORST !! ( it is our lot in life sadly)
Okay and now on with the infamy !!!
First off happy birthday to Junior Ortiz’s understudy – catcher Ronn Reynolds (1958)
Also celebrating a birthday today is mediocre journeyman middle relief pitcher Mike DeJean (1970)
Okay so we are 67 – 89 going into tonite we need only two more wins to get to 69 ( and honor the “69 World Series team for its fortieth anniversary) But I say lets go for broke and win seventy three games !!! – but alas Jerry is our manager and we will probably win only one more game the rest of the season ( kidding stickguy ) anyway LETS GO METS !!!
