Hard to think too much about it what with Cespedes being dead, Cabrera being dead, and our prayers unanswered. But here are some quick thoughts:
~The Wilpons getting booed was the unequivocal highlight.
~Piazza was classy. Especially during his victory lap in the golf kart.
~For me, it was bittersweet when we signed Piazza because Hundley was my favorite player. I knew it was worth it, though.
~We didn’t stand a chance against the Braves and only got to the WS in 2000 thanks to the Cards bumping them off. We didn’t stand a chance against the Yankees, even without the rigging. Clemens should’ve been ejected.
~I was at game 5 in 2000. Even though Piazza flying out was a “lowlight” of sorts, he put a charge into it. He almost got to Mo there. It sucks that Piazza made the last out, but we never had a chance. He was great. Truly the best. That team overachieved and he was the star. 7 year contract for Cespedes. Yo!
~The fans were great. We never have nice things!! Ever!! Piazza’s the first fucking Mets everyday player that has ever had his number retired! I’m glad we gave it the ceremony it deserved.
Reyes dead? Obvious. Lagares dead? Obvious. He’s needed TJ for 2 years. Oh, wait, it’s his thumb! He’s only needed that one for 3 months. Get the TJ while you’re at it. We’re out forever so it doesn’t matter.
If your name isn’t Yoenis, you’re not doing enough.
Fam was bound to blow one. We should’ve had at least 7 runs this game, though.
The Mets are amazing. Just when you think it can’t get worse, they go and lose this one. Verrett vs. fucking Wainwright and we could’ve had this one! A historic night of stranding runners in scoring position and an absolutely riveting comeback (thanks Yo) squandered away. Great for baseball. Terrible for the Mets. Terrible team. Teeeeeerrriiiible.
Asdrubal got a hit with a runner in scoring position. Brand new Mets!
~Reyes is dead. Same ol’ Mets. Maybe Flores gets some playing time? Derrrp Terry.
~No run support for their ace(s). Same ol’ Mets. Managed to squeak out a win because our pitching is that nasty.
~Left a billion runners on. Same ol’ Mets.
So why the fuck was Reyes held? Reyes, who was on 1st before he died, was held at 3rd on a Cespedes (who else?!) double. Timmy! Timmaaaaayy! Send him you freakin’ mook. Two outs. We ain’t gettin another opportunity. And that was the game.
We should’ve won both. Same ol’ Mets.
You know why the Cardinals are so good all the time? You know why they’re never out? Ownership. It’s not just the major league team. It’s the whole fucking organization. Fuck the Wilpons.
The Mets leave ’em loaded like a couple of white trash brother-sister-parents huffing meth in their truck while their baby hangs out with his “new rattle.” I guess that means at least we get runners on base. It’s better than leaving ’em empty, which is what white trash cops do after they’ve left the black neighborhood. I’ve never seen such futility with the bases loaded. How is it that every year the Mets have a, “hey, they’d be awesome if not for this one historically bad category?” This year it’s BA with RISP but I remember when it was bullpen WHIP/ERA just a few years ago. It somehow always relates to us not knowing the fundies. It’s systemic all the way through the farm system, I suppose. It’s the Jew sickness.
I know we won some games against a “good” team on the “road,” but wow do we blow. And yes I put road in quotations because South Beach for guys like Reyes and Cespedes is home. So we blow. The Marlins blow, too. The whole league kinda blows, huh?
You wanna say we’re hurt? Too crowded? FULL! We’re full! Fuck all this shit. My diagnosis is bad babysitting. Bad baseball. Nobody knows what the fuck they’re doing. Yo hurt. Harvey hurt. Wheeler dead. It doesn’t matter. We suck. The games are fucking terrible to watch. Colon let up a run in the 1st and the game was over. That’s all there is to it.
I don’t understand how you dumb shit bloggers and fans can possibly do the retarded things you do like “scoreboard watching” or making excuses or whatever shit you do. Do you know anything about baseball? Watch the fucking games. Look at the god damn batting averages. We had fucking James Loney batting cleanup yesterday. That’s retarded. We never stood a chance. And I like Loney, too. It’s not a knock on him. We’re behind the Marlins for fucks sake. Stop acting like you know what you’re talking about and stop making excuses. Fuck you, Matt Cerrone. Do you even watch the games? Mets blow.
