Well, the season has gotten ugly but the only thing that kind of keeps me going is Blondiesjake’s expert analysis and conclusion about a month ago that he is still excited by the Mets young talent. I guess he is talking about the future All-Star outfield of Duda, Nieuwenhuis, and Valdespin and of course guys like Justin Turner. In case you want to reference that comment, I believe it was the same day that he said Thole was not the issue and the Mets could withstand a light hitting catcher hitting eighth in the lineup.
I give anyone here credit who can still watch this team day in day out. I just can’t. It has gotten beyond ugly.
But no fear. In 20 years or so, the number of wildcards will eventually reach about 7 or 8 and then we will be playing some meaningful September baseball.
