Thanks NY Mets……For Nothing

Dear New York Mets,

Thanks for nothing or maybe I should say thank you for making me out to be a horse’s ass.  Yes that’s sarcasm as I really need no help most days to be a horses ass but by you taking four games from the hated NY Highlanders, well in had me intoxicated in a way I haven’t been in a long time while overdosing on the euphoria of the four game sweep and not to mention the fabulous May 28th win against Mariano Rivera that had me go into work the next day draped in blue and orange  and enter the office like Ric Flair screaming out “WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IF YA WANT TO BE THE MAN…….YOU GOT TO BEAT THE MAN……..WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”. From there I did my best Flair strut to my cubicle withstanding the cat calls of “Shut The Fuck Up” Oh but there was no shutting me up, oh no.

As I mention I was intoxicated with Mets success, it’s not that I ask for championships, although they are fantastic and give me not better feeling as a fan, no all I want is for the Mets to be competitive. All I ask is for a summer of following the Mets and watching the rest of the division as well. How does a Nationals, Braves, Phillies, Marlins loss effect my Amazin’ Mets. I thought after the final win at The Shopping Mall of the South Bronx, there would be a kick start to the season, a season where if Matt Harvey is not on the list of probable pitchers for the day, it’s well, just another day.  

So with the momentum of a 5 game win streak and the schedule saying the Mets must go to Miami and collect 3 more wins all I thought about was an 8 game win streak headed to Washington and an underachieving Nats team, could this be? Could the Mets now be the “uh-oh” team?

This is where me being a horses ass comes in, what the hell was I thinking?  The Mets are not a good team nor are they a team that builds off positive momentum. How stupid was I?   

I’ve learned my lesson and learned it the hard way. Now I slink into work and to the local bagel store and even to church where yesterday I made sure to stand under the statue of Mary when Highlander  fans I know wanted to ridicule and make fun of me and the baseball team I love but couldn’t as I pointed above my shoulder and said “When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me, speaking words of wisdom, Let it Be”  

I’m making a vow not to get all excited again this year, not even when Zack Wheeler arrives (I don’t know if you know but Wheeler’s call up could happen at any time, it’s all over the internet I tell ya) I’m just going to suppress my enthusiasm until next year, 2014:The Resurrection of the NY Mets.  At least that’s what I heard.

  1. Is there another team that could carry off so dramatic a turn around & turn around again in the fans’ emotions? I mean, remember when the Reds swept the Mets and they proceeded to lose the 1st 2 against Atlanta? We were in the doldrums.

    Then they pull a miraculous (for the Mets) win over Atlanta, sweep 4 against the Yankees, including beating Rivera, and we’re on cloud 9. Unbeatable. People talking about how many games out of the Wild Card, etc.

    We couldn’t have been higher heading into this weekend’s series and … whack. The Mets decide to whack us across the face with a cold dose of reality. Just incredible. We’re right back where we were on the 24th of May. Maybe it’s where we belong.

    One of those ESPN guys said the Mets were the worst team in baseball on days when Harvey doesn’t pitch. Well, this weekend they proved him right, only they managed it even with Harvey pitching.

  2. Mother Mary was Paul mcartneys mother

  3. Don’t get too excited about 2014 just yet … the pitching may be coming together — Harvey, Wheeler, Niese, Montero, Gee — but this team cannot hit or score runs … and there is no bullpen to protect the young starting staff on days when they need the help ….. I am prepared for a lot of 3-2, 2-1, 2-0, 1-0 losses in 2014 …. great pitching will help, but the heart-break of those 1-0 and 2-1 losses will be hard.
