As a Mets fan, I am ashamed, appalled and embarrassed by the shaky performance of my baseball team down the stretch, and I am tired of watching their bullpen and their lack of timely hits choke away our chances at postseason play. So I’m done with them for this year. They may still surprise us all and hold off Milwaukee, but there’s no way this team goes anywhere in the playoffs. Think first-round exit. Anybody still watching this team knows that any optimism left is misplaced.
Once the postseason begins, I will be cheering for the Cubs. The Mets haven’t proved they deserve my support, and it would be great for baseball if the Cubs won the World Series. That’s all I have to say on that.
More on the bailout when Congress finally gets something in writing.
