After last nite’s loss and a Philly win the Mets are now tied with the Phil’s at 19 games off the pace. Even worse we’re just 1.5 games out of last as Miami steadily gains ground on us as well.
You know we’re finishing in last place right? Despite the debacle of a year Philly has endured and despite the fantastic first half the Mets have had they’re about to pass us.
RA was robbed of his 16th Win due to another nonexistent Met offense.
Josh Edgin’s sloppy execution is the easy place to find blame but 1O runners left on base in a 3-1 loss is the real culprit.
It’s a shame because RA deserves to win 20 this year and it doesn’t look like it’s gonna happen. He could easily have 17 or 18 wins at this point but last nite was a game he needed to have.
If Valdespin runs through the bag is he safe? Yeah maybe. But when you’re trying to get to that bag as fast as humanly possible instinct tells you to dive. I don’t blame guys for doing it… Nor can I get too worked up over this age old argument… But I do believe you get to the base fastest by running through it.
Then again I believe in Climate Change and UFO’s so…
