Game 59: Padres 2 - Mets 1 (Thursday night)
Game 60: Padres 2 - Mets 1 (Friday night)
Sorry for being MIA. I was planning to catch up on both games this morning, but I had to do some work outside for an hour. The heat was amazing, however, and it put me out of commission for a while.
In retrospect, that may have been a good thing. While I was recuperating it occurred to me how tired I am of writing about the Mets offensive failings this season. I think everything has been said in this regard already.
I've accommodated myself that this is how it will be this season. I just don't believe there is a bat that can really make a difference available out there for any reasonable price. $140 million payroll should have bought more offense, anyway. If I were Fred Wilpon, Omar would have some explaining to do.
Two winnable games. Seasons go down the tubes when teams can't cash in on those consistently.
