The Mets suck again.
Let it be known to future historians that the area around Shea Stadium and Citi Field was known as "Flushing" long before Mets fans longed to do just that to their crappy ball club. The latest example: Angel Pagan, the Mets' backup center fielder, last night hit an inside the park home run AND started a triple play in consecutive innings.
Yeah, they lost anyway. To the Nationals.
It could be worse. Just now I see on the ticker that the Reds have scored eight runs in the top of the second in Atlanta. If those were the Mets they would probably blow the lead: they'd give back a couple in the home half, a run here and there in the middle innings, and then a six-run blow-up in the eighth by four relievers while Willie Randolph cackles madly, jabbing knitting needles into a giant voodoo doll of Mr. Met.
UPDATED - holy smokes! Atlanta DID win. Cincy pulled a Benitez on us.
