Road Winning Streak Ends, But Its Spirit Endures

Mr. Met die hard

Normally a blowout loss in the making that gets close enough to become a frustrating coulda-been win leaves me in a bad mood. But I liked what I saw in Toronto Saturday. Not the falling behind 6-0 and the skewed removal of Orlando Hernandez at the umpires’ behest, but the battling back against Roy Halliday, the continual chipping away at a big lead, the continued awesomeness of Reyes and Wright, the rescue squad work of Darren Oliver and everybody’s never-say-die attitude. Yeah, Valentin and Nady had awful at-bats with the bases loaded in the eighth and no, nobody did a damn thing against B.J. Ryan (why didn’t we sign him instead of Wagner?), but they didn’t take the afternoon off. Good on them.

Here’s to a team-record road winning streak of nine just completed. And here’s to starting another one real soon. With this team, anything is possible.

Mr. Met never says die, certainly not at Zed Duck Studios.
