Where on earth is Angel Pagan?!?
BMF is so concerned that I’m issuing an All-Points-Bulletin, an Amber alert AND a good old fashioned yodel in search of the once dangerous Met.
We’re starving for runs and dying for the spark he used to provide.
If you look up and down the line-up it doesn’t look so bad. Reyes (.329) is hitting like crazy right now, and so is Beltran (.286).
Ike (.290) has cooled although he started white hot. Wright (.229) is slumping badly but Pagan is by far the worst sitting at a putrid .167.
I cringe just typing a number as low as .167
I don’t know if it’s the pressure of replacing Beltran in CF or living up to being the best player on the team last year but Pagan is in a bad way right now and our offense is going belly up without any production from his bat.
Thing is with all these 1 or 2 run losses if we had last years Pagan we’d have at least 3 more wins.
Another depressing loss. Whattya gonna do? I’m sticking to my early season declaration that I’m not letting any losses bother me this year.
But losing 9 of our last 10 games sucks. Being 1-8 at home is a joke and sitting in last place in the NL East while owning the worst record in baseball is straight up embarrassing.
Do the Wilpons even go to the games these days? I can’t imagine they would show their faces to any Met fans. But I guess from their point of view it could be worse - they could be the Dodgers.
Meanwhile, I think we’re about 2 steps away from getting the Dodger treatment from Selig. We’ve taken loans to meet payroll and Bid already sent Alderson to straighten us out.
