Is it completely unreasonable to just plain want some of that 2006 magic for the rest of the season? When the wins just rolled out one after the other? The way I see it, we’re looking at 3 options for September. 1) We start losing. And as can happen (we allll know) the losing begets more losing. 2) We win! Again and again! Oh how confident the Mets are, all swagger and red hot bats and picking each other up. 3) Win, lose, win, lose, win, lose, right along with the other contenders in our division, and right to the very end. Oy.
I have a feeling I’m going to be very moody in September. I’m not a huge fan of roller coasters, Metsies. Can’t we just have it easy for once? I’m thinking it’s on the offense now. Pick up the bullpen, the missing John Maine. Wanna score early? Fine, great, but the ball works the same in later innings too. Let’s keep up what you did last night. Come on, boys. Don’t fail us this time.
