Win the next 3 and take 2 of 3 from the fish and then they will have something to think about....very unlikely though

Time to trade Tejada.  His value will never be higher than these next 20 hours.

Ok.  Fine.  We don't need any backup infielders.

@sandybgone there's a lot of contingencies here ultimately leading to a disappointing outcome. Let's just enjoy the win, and enjoy the good times when we can...otherwise, what's the point?

@sandybgone  Sweeping 4 games from the Braves wouldn't fool me into thinking this Mets team is close.


We've seen them go on short stretches of winning baseball, only to be followed by stretches of abysmal baseball.

Even better. They can fix him in four minutes with Warthen
