We Could Be 10-2

Terry Collins is right: the Mets are in every game lately. They’re the ones watching the players on the opposing team congratulate each other on yet another close victory. Close in terms of final score, anyway. The sense that the Mets will find a way to give up an extra run that will ultimately kill their inevitable “oh yeah, it’s not over yet” comeback has become as prevalent as wacky outfield dimensions and overmatched fill-in outfielders.

No reason that can’t change in the nightcap. No law against it. I don’t think there is. Maybe I should check with Troy Tulowitzki. Right now, it’s his world — the Mets are just losing in it.

    You can’t win them all…But you can lose them all!!

    We need this one bad!

    Game 1 was live on TV here in England. The sun set for the day at the same time as the final flyout……………..quite symbolic I guess!

  • This is the sort of thing I need to see to keep me sane. I’m currently watching the game from the ledge of my window with a loaded revolver in one hand and a Doc Gooden bobblehead in the other.

    Boy that last post was so dead on!….I hope he is done with after his 4th HR!

    They’re just unwatchable at this point.

    A four-game sweep. And to think the Rockies did it all without Ubaldo Jiminez.

    Keep the faith, brothers and sisters….it’s only April. Sigh.

    I can’t figure out whether the nightcap was a win or a loss. Game One was abviously a Win, but are they now 10-3 or 11-2 in Collinsland?? I’m still not sure what the accounting rules are in CollinsAlternateUniverse.
