If You Were Still Holding Out Hope for the Mets...

...Nelson Figueroa just flushed it down the toilet with a Tom Glavine-esque performance.

In the biggest start of his career, a chance to prove he belongs in the big leagues, Figueroa couldn't even make it through the second inning against the offensively anemic Diamondbacks.

The crazy part is every ball was crushed. Even Dan Haren sent Angel Pagan within a step of the warning track against Figueroa.

As I type it's now already 6-0 and it's not even the end of the second inning yet.

It's over folks. This game. This season. This team.

Let's talk about getting Roy Halladay for the next two months.

We've got a better shot at achieving that goal than this team has of finishing the season above .500.
