Greetings from Miami …
Just got off the phone with a radio station wanting to talk about the collapse of the Mets. Huh?Ã‚Â They’ve been hot and cold all year, so the last week is hardly a surprise.
Neither was last night’s win.
The problems that lead to five straight losses have been well documented all year as readers of this blog well know. The timing was just terrible. If it happens in October, and there are no assurances it won’t, they’ll be bounced from the playoffs.
Pretty simple, actually.
Two things I liked about last night were Jorge Sosa and Mike Pelfrey. They haven’t had a bullpen effort like that in a long time. Pelfrey wasn’t sharp, but he pitched out of trouble, which I think is an encouraging sign.
