Well, I’m happy to see Mattsblog go in to total bitch mode. Things ain’t looking good, but like MF4D, I’m a mets fan through good and bad, so I’ll be watching and supporting to the end.

im sure alot of people are joining that mode…this isnt fun to watch….but we will still keep coming back…

I am certainly watching and supporting, but I definitely am coming to terms with the fact that I have dramatically overrated the abilities of just about everyone on this team outside of Wright, Reyes and Beltran (when healthy), Pagan, Santana, Dickey, and maybe KRod.

Yes, I will – until the bitter end.
Greg Prince over on Faith and Fear in Flushing latest post: ‘Another One Bites the Must’, sums it up for me. Greg always seems to hit the nail on the head.
This is what I wait for every Oct-Mar. NY Met baseball. To not only be heading out of it so early this year, but to be watching this circus just defies description. But Greg Prince comes close..

Should have included the link:
Just a snipit:
On Sunday, before the Mets were so fired up by the presence of their 1986 predecessors that they stormed forth and lost by thirteen runs to a last-place team, Davey Johnson spoke to the enduring meaning of this franchiseâ€™s last championship season:
â€œThe one lesson we all learned from that year is no matter what in life, we always have a chance, no matter how bleak it looks.â€
Easy for him to say, what with a rotation so deep that his best pitcher in the second half, Rick Aguilera, didnâ€™t even get a start in the postseason. But yeah, like Davey said, we always have a chance. The â€™86 Mets didnâ€™t need to worry about 7Â½-game margins, but the â€™73 Mets overcame one in Augustâ€¦as did the â€™69 Mets, come to think of it.
Ancient history but our history. Itâ€™s what keeps me hanging on â€” that, and what Richard Gere cried to Louis Gossett, Jr., in An Officer and a Gentleman:
â€œI got nowhere else to go!â€
Câ€™mon, Iâ€™m a Mets fan. This is the Metsâ€™ season. The moment the Mets dip absolutely out of the pennant race with which they are, at most, technically assoicated, what good is that? This, the season, is what I wait October to April for. I want it to continue in ways that encompass more than motions being gone through. And please donâ€™t tell me about football training camps, for crissake. Iâ€™m here for the Mets. The Mets start playing out the string, itâ€™s that much closer to not being baseball season. 2011 means nothing to me until 2010 is all the way over, and even then, 2011 has to wait another six months, another October to April, another altogether unending winter in a lifetime that includes too many of them already.

Well, with all due respect, he makes me think the same thing I did when reading his pretty good book—he really needs to find some other interests in life.
I mean come on!

A quote after last night’s game.
“We’ve lost up seven games with 17, 18 to play,” Wright said, alluding to the team’s 2007 collapse. “So by no means are we out of it. At the same time, we’ve got to get hot and go on some streaks.”
I am not sure that referencing our epic collapse was the best way to instill the we can still win it rallying cry.
lmaooo…yea…im sure that comment was not on his pr script lol

OMG, what the hell is THAT supposed to mean??

A poorly chosen example that miracles do happen?

MLBTR: Mets Open To Reyes Extension
The Mets are willing to negotiate an extension with Jose Reyes, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. The sides have not discussed anything yet and will not finalize anything during the season, but the Mets are open to replacing their $11MM club option for 2011 with a multi-year deal.
The Mets are committed to Reyes as a long-term solution at short, according to Martinoâ€™s source. The club is not concerned about Reyesâ€™ health, despite the leg, thyroid and oblique injuries that have sidelined him in 2009-10.

good. just don’t include a no trade clause for our “trade reyes” people in the house! (i just cracked myself up on that one). Or a clause that we can’t offer arbitration! (another crackup). I need to sleep more at night.
8/5/2010-12:13pm at 12:13 pm (UTC -4)
I’m curious to see what they offer him, whether it will be for 3/4 years or by long term, they mean through his early 30s.
For the record, I’m not on that ‘trade Reyes’ bandwagon….
8/5/2010-12:17pm at 12:17 pm (UTC -4)
Honestly, I would think something like 14 per over 4 years? Like a 12, 13.5, 14.5, 16 trend + an option year? I dunno. I make under 6 figures so it’s tough to relate.

I turned off the radio last night and went to bed after the circus came to town and the Mets started throwing the ball around like the clowns at my company picnic, which, coincedentally enough, was yesterday.
