I would say that us Met fans are cautiously optimisitc.

We see lots of fight in these Mets just like we did in that 86 team.

After several years of getting our arses handed to us, we have a right to be happy and gloat a little bit that we are doing so well. And if your team was 9.5 games up over second place, you might be a little cocky as well.

I remember 1978 too well to get cocky at this stage of the season.

We'll see Pedro and the Mets at Fenway, and it should be fun.

in order for the Mets to completely collapse - Pedro, Glavine, Soler, and El Duque would have to be in a car accident that has them plunging off the Whitestone bridge and for the Phillies to acquire Schilling, Beckett, and Halladay.

4 Mets pitchers killed in freak blender accident
Quote:
AP New York, New York:
New York Mets starting pitchers Pedro Martinez, Tom Glavine, CirqueDu Soler and Orlando "El Dookie" Hernandez were all killed late Sunday night when a blender used to make mango martinis from Martinez' favorite mango tree in the Dominican Republic exploded, smothering the 4 in searing mango juice.
Bartender and martini mixer Nelson de la Rosa escaped injury when the flying mango juice sailed over his head.
The Mets have released a statement saying they will dedicate this season to the memory of the fallen 4 and will use erstwhile closer Billy Wagner as starter for each of the team's remaining 94 games.
In a related NL East note, the Philadelhpi Phillies, in a 6 team swap have acquired Dontrelle Willis, Roy Halladay, Brandon Arroyo, Carlos Zambrano and the still warm corpse of Pedro Martinez in exchange for high definition DVD copies of Mike Schmidt crying like a baby when announcing his retirement from baseball many years ago.
The Marlins, Blue Jays, Reds, Cubs and Mets all feel they got the better of the deal.

well, we'll just have to bring up Pelfrey and add him w/ Trachsel, Darren Oliver, Maine, and Bannister.

and still win the division by a game.

Speaking of the Cubs. . . Michael Barrett begins serving his 10 game suspension tonight.

Things are not looking good for the Cubs and Dusty Baker. There is something like an $80 million difference btwn the Cub and Marlin payrolls. The Marlins have the better record.

Dusty was quoted in the Chicago Sun Times today saying "I just want my team back someday soon." I'd say he's given up already. What an awful thing to say.

The Red Sox are leading in a game started by a pitcher who apparently wasn't even good enough to stay with the Kansas City Royals.

Go figure.

Look at Wright's Popeye-like forearms.

Pat the Bat is an equal opportunist when beating up Mets AND Yanks.
