Inevitably, there will be those that cry to the hill tops about how the Mets blew tonight’s game. “Same ole’ Mets” they probably will say. Francisco Rodriguez giving up a two run bomb in the bottom of the ninth to blow a save and D.J. Carrasco’s losing balk certainly lends credence to that thought process.
My thoughts? Quit your belly aching you Negative Nancies.
I am equally disappointed in the way things turned out tonight. However, the difference is that I haven’t lost sight of the big picture. The Mets took two of three in Atlanta, a place that has traditionally been extremely unkind to them.
If you want to focus on two horribly disgusting plays and forget the fact that the Mets actually won the series, there really isn’t much I can do for you. Hell, you can actually look at tonight’s game alone and find some positives. The Mets could have easily mailed it in when they found themselves down by four. They had already won the series.
Instead, they fought back, took the lead, and put themselves in position to win. Obviously, it didn’t work out tonight, but I for one appreciate the effort.
If you want to call me a homer go ahead. That is another example of your shortsightedness. After all, I expected the Mets to drop two of three prior to the beginning of this series. Instead, I am looking past tonight’s tough loss and grasping reality. The Mets exceeded my expectations this series.
For those of you who want to bitch and moan about the small stuff and ignore the big picture, there isn’t much I can do for you.
