What Can I Say About The 2009 Mets?

It is with a heavy heart that I write this post. For weeks I had notes on what I wanted to say about this MLB season but I was waiting, hoping things would turn around. They still might... but listen, I'm a realist so lets get real, OKAY?

The Mets are currently in 4th place; as of this posting their season stats are an atrocious 57-68. While watching the game vs. Atlanta at a bar on Wednesday (which by the way really killed my spirit- really, though? You're just gonna up and let the Braves score nine runs in the first two innings? Why even bother showing up if that's how you're gonna play...) some buttlicker was all, "But they're in the top five at least." EXCUSE ME? Does top five get a freaking parade in the fall? I think not so shut your damn trap!

I was really excited for this season of baseball, I really was. I figured they had a pretty good starting line-up that was used to playing together and had found their rhythm. Then I got a peek at the list of injured players... and it was chock full of the starting line-up: Reyes, Beltran, Delgado; recent additions include Putz, Fernandez, Wright and even my beloved Santana who's having elbow trouble and may need surgery. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!

I know what you're thinking- there are other players on the team and it shouldn't rest on the shoulders of these few men to win a ball game. Whatever... if you were just thinking that you can SUCK IT. Just like everyone knew that Beyonce WAS Destiny's Child, it is a well-known fact that Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Wright & Santana ARE the Mets. We cannot do it without them, we just CANNOT!

And you know who I blame, right? Minaya- my arch nemesis! If he'd had a better coaching staff to train the 2nd string losers that are COSTING US THE SEASON AND SULLYING THE INAUGURAL YEAR AT CITIFIELD, we'd have a better record right now instead of being 16.5 games behind first place.

I mean HONESTLY! How do you come back from that hot ghetto mess without your core players?

So I'm guessing if the Braves game you mentioned was the nail in the coffin then the Phillies game with the unassisted triple play was the dirt thrown on the coffin.

Girl we are together on this one. I don't even bother watching now. I turned in my jersey for the season and will dust it off again next season.

And argghhh if they would have got rid of Minaya earlier all would be right with the world. but nooooo they had to go get rid of Willie, now he's laughing and pointing. I will always love Willie, he's my Bucktown brother!
