Mets Fans: This is NO Joking Matter!!

I am diligently trying to remain positive. I am trying to see the glass half full, rather than half empty, but the truth is, sometimes I don’t even see the glass! How many scoring opportunities are the Mets going to waste? How many outs can they possibly make with runners in scoring position? How many Carloses are going to continue to disappoint???

This truly IS no joking matter. The Braves are breathing down our necks and the Phillies are right there with them. The only consistent hitter in the lineup has been Wright, and I am NOT just saying that because he is my favorite. Reyes and LoDuca have been more than acceptable, and quite honestly, do we really expect that much from Green or Valentin?

John Maine and Billy Wagner have been the pitching highlights in their respective roles. Other than that, anyone got anything else to add?

The Mets have to step it up, and I’m not talking about a little bit. This is not just an expression – “step it up” – this is the real deal. If the Mets don’t find their 2006 groove in a real hurry, they are headed for disaster. And I don’t know about you, but I sure as heck don’t want to see another “almost” perfect finish!
