#774662 Official 2009 New York Mets Offseason Thread

.5 game out of first with some pretty bad injury luck so far this year. If I listed all the injuries the Mets had so far this year and said they'd be .5 games out of first I think everyone would take that with a smile.


Pretty bad is an understatement, to say the least.

As for taking a 1/2 game out of first with all that's gone wrong...it's impossible not to. It has more to do with the Phillies not playing well more than anything the Mets are doing, but the Mets deserve a lot of credit for finding a way to take 3 out of 4 from a superior Cardinal squad. With the lineup the Mets are fielding right now, every series win is a bonus.

Since the schedule turned brtual, starting with the Philles on June, the Mets are 7-9. Not pretty, but far from disastrous. If they take two out of three from the Yankees it'll be hard not to be thrilled.

Back from Hilton Head (South Carolina, for those unfamiliar) after a whole lot of driving.

The week pretty much went as I expected it to. I don't care about them miraculously finding themselves two games out of first...it's fool's gold, and the Phillies are the kind of team that can play mediocre ball for long stretches, only to rise up and win the important games. This Mets team has pretty much done zilch, and they're now dreadfully shorthanded to boot. I can't expect Omar to plug this many holes, and even if Omar was a great GM (he is only in his own mind), asking him to replace three everyday stars and two starting pitchers is asking far too much.

I had the white flag rising up the pole, but consider it fully raised with Beltran's trip to the DL. I consider the Omar Minaya Era to have gone sour enough to send him packing come season's end.

I'll still watch, but with Castillo's fly ball drop my emotions with this team are spent. Just the fact that that a$$hole is still wearing blue and orange is blasphemous to me. I just hope Fernando Martinez gets as many ABs as possible and shows something.
