I’m getting annoyed with this team. All smoke and no sizzle. All talk and no bite. Willie Randolph says he knows his team better than anyone. If that’s true, then he should know they stink right now.
Championship caliber teams to into the fourth game of a series against a last-place team looking for the sweep or to win three of four. Instead, the Mets lose three out of four to the Nationals.
Unbelievable. Actually, it’s not. They’ve been mediocre now since last July and aren’t showing any signs of breaking out of their funk.
They threw away a great start by Mike Pelfrey this afternoon. They didn’t hit. They weren’t smart on the bases. Last night it was the bullpen.
I am tired of hearing “we’re better than this,’’ or “we’re not playing up to our capabilities,’’ or “we need to start hitting with runners in scoring position.’’ Or any other pathetic cliches.
Just shut up and play and stop wasting our time with mediocrity.
