Yer 2011 Mets: Boyer Dey Bad

 Goats Galore!!

This team is looking more like a team that can't even meet the drastically diminished expectations we have for them. After nine games against their main competition in the NL East, we see most of the same qualities we recognize from the past few years. Plus, the starters have been bailing early and the relief pitching hasn't stepped up, probably because they're not capable. Terry Collins didn't endear himself to fans Sunday leaving Duda in right field when the big defensively challenged lug seemed a candidate for defensive replacement. Duda might be better off carrying a bat into right field than a glove.

Maybe this guy was the culprit!






Either way, Mets fans can be forgiven for wishing this mediocre team could just blow games in regulation time. The sad performances in winnable games make me frustrated. The extra innings just make me mad. No one is throwing in the towel yet, but that might be because none off us can muster the energy or enthusiasm.

    Those Mugs shot off another loss that mirrored their NAThetic Sunday affair last night. Frustrating is right! At times looked like the '62 Mets. Can anybody here play this game?
