Note: 2007 compared to 2008

Over the remaining 29 games, the media will most certainly remind every player on the Mets of last season’s ‘Collapse,’ whether in second place or first place.

…i’m sorry to say it, and i know i should not feel this way, but i can’t stop thinking about it either…it just hangs there like a distant fog…again, this is a terrible way to look at things, i know, but i can’t help it…

…of course, it’s not going to keep me from believing that this season will be different…i’ll still pull for this team with all of my heart…but, last season is just so hard to forget…

However, in a post to his blog for Newsday, Ken Davidoff writes…

“These Mets have two assets - well one definite asset and one perceived asset - that their 2007 predecessors lacked.  The perceived asset is a mental toughness to come back from such a crushing defeat.  The definite asset is Johan Santana, who starts tonight.”

 …that may be, ken…at least, i hope you’re right…

…what i do know is that i am getting real sick of seeing the Mets lose to the Phillies in games like last night…

…i know the Mets rebounded in an earlier series this season against the Phillies, and are 9–5 overall, but it’s these crunch-time type of games that i want to see the Mets win…you know, like the ones from last September

…i believe in this current team, but night’s like last night remind me of last season, which i am clearly not yet over…

…hopefully, the players are…
