When I looked at the team before the season started, there were plenty of reasons to think that the Mets could surprise a lot of people.
But during this first couple weeks it’s evident that the squad from Queens has shown that they can’t even hang against the Nationals. I hate pointing out the negatives like all those other shitty blogs about the Mets, but it’s simply the truth.
During these past two series the bullpen gave everyone flashbacks of 2008 and left me wondering if we could bring back Heilman, since his shitty performances only came during September.
Another thing that has this team going nowhere is their lack of hitting with two outs and with men on base. It seems like every effin’ team in the league can get that clutch hit, except the Mets. Sure, they have put together awesome rallies during some games, even avoiding a beatdown in Philly, but they haven’t completed that phat comeback that can give them the game and maybe get them on a roll for the next few games.
It’s evident that the team has loosened up, seems to be having fun and is showing some unity, but I think they have to start taking all these losses personally. Start hating the other team, no matter who it is.
The squad from Queens definitely doesn’t look like a club with a $200 million plus payroll. After watching this team for the past week now I know how Pirates, Royals and Orioles fans have been feeling during all these decades.
I hope the Mets can turn it around and don’t turn into the floor mat of the National League.
LET’S GO METS!
