Dear Mets Fans,
I know what you felt last week, watching the Division slip through our fingers. ONLY the Mets can win 101 games and "limp" into the playoffs. ONLY the Mets can give us a gut punch with 10 seconds to go in the final round. ONLY the Mets can roll out two hall of fame Cy Young winners in a 3-game series and make us feel like they don't have a shot.
I said some things last week and my faith wavered, just like everyone. It's like you had a fight with your significant other. Tensions were high, you SHOULD have done the dishwasher, right? Feelings arose from previous fights and there's a sense that things just won't ever change, and you're ready to throw it all away. You take a day not talking, then, you make up with a three game sweep of the Nationals. End up tieing the Braves and laugh about how just ONE win vs the Cubs would have gotten us the division. "Too soon..?"
Now it's the weekend and we're all made up and ready to party. The team need us in full force this weekend. They were hoping for the weekend off, they KNOW they let it "slip" away. I mean, it's more of a testament to the Braves winning like 77 games since June 1. I know everything is circumstantial, but if you told me the Mets would win 101 games and be hosting the Padres for the Wild Card round back in April I would have signed right there.
Tough end, but we're here regardless.
