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.
