The New York Mets: It's Been Hard To Watch
For the past 3 weeks, I've been wanting to write a post about the deflating, injury-plagued season that has decimated my beloved New York Mets. But every time I've sat down to begin writing, the disappointment has triggered an attack of writer's block.
To put it simply-- this has been a very sour season for Mets fans. We still can't figure out how or why these injuries have kept all of our star players on the disabled list for pretty much the entire year. Ok, we all understand teams go through injuries during the course of a long season-- but not to the entire heart of the lineup.
What's happened to the Mets this year is really creepy. I've never seen anything like it before.
Yesterday, I was sitting at home, reading the Sunday NY Daily News and I came across a clipping that really caught my eye. It was a quote made by Chicago Cubs broadcaster, Chip Carey.
Mr. Carey really "hit the nail on the head" with this comment:
This comment pretty much sums up the entire season. Mets fans everywhere are wondering the same thing, Chip.
