|Someone had better|
I'm heading into the hospital for surgery tomorrow, so you probably won't be hearing from me for a few days. But, I won't be going silent by myself. The New York Mets bats have preceded me into quietude. It seems only fair. In 4 of their last 8 games, I have driven in exactly as many runs as the Mets hitters being paid to perform that important task. What's even more irksome about the Mets' four shutout losses is that merely scoring 11 well-timed runs combined in those games could have secured four victories for the club. It's one thing to come up against a great pitcher and lose a tough one here and there. It's quite another to see your club slumber through one winnable game after another.
