Last night I spent my evening watching the game while chatting with many fellow TRDMB members
in the Dugout and found it entertaining that those that were watching the game on SNY had no video and as
one member pointed out a “dvdrip with cam audio”.
With every out made the frustration of not having video grew so much so that trying to make light of the situation
I would every once in a while say “We Now Give You Beer Money Already In Progress…” that got a chuckle
from those in the room.
It was probably the highlight of the evening as it kept the focus off what was happening on the field which was
the Mets offense once again failing to show up wasting another good start from a Mets starter.
The Mets are now 49-45 6.5 games behind the Division leading Braves. Which seem to just refuse to lose and
have the 3rd best record in MLB at 55-38. Those pesky Braves that back on May 17th were 18-20 and in
last place 6.5 games behind the Division leading Phillies. Since that day the Braves have gone on a
37-18 tear playing .673 ball.
The farthest behind the Mets ever was this season was 7 games behind way back on May 21st and here they are now
6.5 games back. Can the Mets play .673 ball the rest of the way and turn it around like the Braves did? Probably not
that would mean they would have to go about 46-22 the rest of the way .676 ball. That would put them at 95-67 for the season.
Right now I am crossing my fingers for the Mets to go 41-27 .602 ball.
Whatever happens though other than watching fellow author Ceetar on an upcoming episode of Beer Money I don’t think the “We Now Give You Beer Money Already In Progress…” line won’t go far in masking what is happening on the field.
