Zombie Apocalypse

We want the Mets to get up now...

“I just kind of felt dead tonight,” said Dillon Gee after losing to the Yankees, 4-2.

Didn’t we all inside? Didn’t everybody in a Mets uniform, with the possible exception of provisional savior Omar Quintanilla, look like Dillon felt?

Enough playing dead. Rise from the dead already.

It’s Sunday. It’s as good a day as any for a resurrection.

  • Well Greg you know me and as far as the team is concerned I am generally optimistic.It is , however, the team many fans even good and loyal ones such as yourself,

  • Chipper
