Mets to tread water today…

Posted in Mets 2009 Shens on June 20, 2009 by John

Figuratively and literally.

If today’s game didn’t have that ridiculous FOX start time, it might actually get played, but oh well.

It’s in the Mets’ best interest to not even start it if it isn’t going to finish. They can lose a game with the quickness, but if you were to ask them to go out there and win in 90 minutes and 5 innings, it isn’t happening.

No more Santana tracker

Yesterday’s performance has made keeping track of his stats meaningless, so I am going to stop.

At this point it’s a matter of how long the Philies are going to let the Mets hang around within 5 games before they say the hell with it and run away.

In other news, Manny Acta couldn’t get his team to play, much to the chagrin of Ron Darling, and will probably lose his job this week.

Bill Gallo is going to have his work cut out for him tonight…*

Luis Castillo is fucking lucky his team is on the road… wait they are still in town, god help him.

I know a place where you can get some cheap paper bags, or in his case, plastic bags.

Running out of ways to say “Mets piss away another”

I missed Santana tracker yesterday.

All you need to know…

All stats except losses increased.

What a game by the Mets tonight. It’s a shame people pay money to see it live.

I will be watching this weekend’s series on YES. I don’t want to have to hear Ron Darlings mouth, and neither should you.

A really bad sign…

When after the game they show an episode of Two and a Half Men and Life According to Jim, you know the Mets got their ass kicked.


If I had gone to the game, I would’ve asked for a partial refund of my ticket. The game didn’t nearly provide 3 hours of entertainment.

Doubly pathetic…

There were 8 runs scored in this game.

Triply Pathetic…

Not only do the Mets hit into double plays in 4 straight innings, the last double play was a double play that will live in infamy as one of the most dubious plays you’ll ever see.

Another lost series

3 out of 4 from the Pirates, pathetic. The only game they didn’t lose was the game they didn’t play.

Falling futher behind in the standings, and falling closer to .500 again.

Let’s make it a 6 for 6 road trip in Washington!

When the season comes down to the last game, remember this road trip. The Mets found two teams as hapless as them, and they couldn’t beat them.

Mets don’t even try anymore

At around 9:20 I found my way to a radio, just to get an update on the goings on in the Mets game…

Turns out they had already pathetically lost.

Santana update:

7-3, ERA is 2 on the dot, 72 innings, 89 strikeouts, WHIP is a running picket fence

Scandal update!

Swine Flu hits the New Y0rk Mets?

Either that, or they are excusing losing to the Pirates in a little over 2 hours.

One more staggering fact from tonight’s game…

The attendance for the game struggled to get over 10,000.
