Game 41: Mets 11 - Yankees 2
I apologize for being late again with this. To be honest with you, I've been having some health problems related to pushing myself too hard. I decided I needed to take a couple of steps backward for a while and I'm starting to feel somewhat better.
I've got some pieces planned for the site, but will probably go real light on the game analysis for a while. I'll get a post up there with whatever observations I had that you'll be free to add your comments to.
As much as I enjoyed how well the Mets played this weekend against the Yankees, and how well Oliver Perez pitched Sunday, I'm honestly not convinced that the "patient" has made anything more than a temporary recovery. I think this team has some deep problems, particularly offensively, that will preclude any real runs of winning baseball in the near future. I hope they prove me wrong.
If the above sounds pessimistic, it's because I honestly feel that way. I guess, other than my health problems, that's the main reason why it's taking me so long to get even brief recaps posted lately. I feel like I'm just writing the same things over and over. I refuse to do that.
Anyway, if anyone has some analysis of the Yankees series, please feel to append your comments.
