Last year at this time, the NY Mets were in free fall and I was standing in front of a bar in Manhattan with this guy discussing their chances of righting the ship and making the playoffs. We felt confident that The Phillies, being The Phillies, would choke and the Mets would somehow make the postseason. We were overly optimistic, The Mets came up short and they appear to be doing in again. I want to look away but I can’t. I’m going to suffer through the last week and a half just like this blogger, this one and this one.
