Mets fans lived in hope for one week as the team went on a 5 game winning streak!! As a die hard NY Mets fan we all realize that the season is over. Yet we continue to tune in to watch with hope that the injured will return and we can make yet another miracle comeback. During the middle of the winning streak we sat with baited breath as the division was washed away with the continuing winning by the Phillies, but the wild card came into view as while playing the Rockies we began to make up ground. With bounces off bases going directly to players and being turned into double plays, we thought it was now our turn to make up ground and move up the ladder. But now two days later and losing both games we once again are waking up to the fact that this is at best a 500 team.
While some may still hold out hope that we can turn it around as the front office tells us that 3 of our 4 major injured players should be back within the next two weeks I believe I for one have decided that there is no hope for this year. I continue to watch and hope and will be anticipating the return of Delgado, Beltran and Reyes. But the front office has given up hope this year by not doing anything at the trade deadline. How as NY Mets fans can we continue to hope if the front office (rumors) pass up on the likes of Halliday, Lee and Martinez. Prospects are just that prospects who should be given up for proven players.
May 2009 be a distant memory soon and we can look forward to the off season and the rebuilding of our beloved Mets for 2010.
