Forget Da Bears. Its time for Da Mets.
After losing two out of three to rival and division leading Philadelphia Phillies in traditional Mets fashion, get a lead and blow it late, the Mets blew another game in late innings in another way no Mets fan knew possible.
Luis Castillo, who Met fans have started to take a liking to, dropped a pop-up with two outs, loaded bases and Alexander Rodriguez up. Talk about drama, K-rod against A-rod and K-rod made the pitch. To bad the Mets are one of the worst fundamental teams ever, and along with learning how to touch third, the Mets can't catch fly balls either.
Not even a fly ball, a lousy pop-up to the second basemen and he drops it. As a die hard Mets fan I have always been upset after big losses and losses to rivals. Due to my friends mostly being Yankee friends, it is hard to not be teased about my New York Mets.
But after this game, I sit here laughing, thinking with all the injuries, all the base running errors and the horrible fielding, that we could lose with a pop-up to the infield. Even Yankee fans are coming up to me and apologizing, not even finding the humor in it, but I sat her watching the game, laughing when it happened.
Because in some weird, sick but true Met way, Met fans knew they were going to lose that game. And when the pop up was hit, and you saw Castillo battling the non sun and clear night skies of New York, you had a feeling he would drop it.
That game all but guarantees a Yankee sweep and thrashing of the Mets, and basically shows the Mets that they have way to many holes in their team, and that one or two guys will not be the answer.
So as a Met fan I say forget it. Forget Adam Dunn, forget Matt Holiday, Forget Nick Johnson. Keep bringing up the triple A guys, from the Buffalo Bison's and lets just keep rolling it. We might not win against the Phillies, Braves and heck maybe even the Nationals, but it be fun to watch. It be like any other September baseball for the Amazings, just two months earlier.
Let's see if the Bisons play fundamental baseball, and if not, start taking from the Brooklyn Cyclones, I mean it doesn't matter if they can't hit for power, neither do the Mets!
It might get so bad, start purchasing contracts from the Long Island Ducks. You just never know. What I do know is that the Mets are just a bad organization. From the owners who built a stadium in remembrance to the Dodgers? To the General Managers who have traded Nolan Ryan, Tom Seaver,and Scott Kazmir.
Not To mention, trading Jason Bay, Melvin Mora, Paul Byrd and plent others, to get guys like, Mike Bordick, John Bale, and the great Victor Zambrano.
It also stems out to players, ones who left games and played cards in the dugout, and also some who think running plays out is very unnecessary. And for ones who decided drugs and pranks were the way to go.
It just will never stop, it is a losing organization and will always be.
Just now, this year, with everything going on, it is actually sort of funny. You can watch a Met game as a comedy, because you know their is a great chance that someone will do something that you have never seen before on a baseball diamond. Those are memories, you will never forget.
