Keystone Kops - Keystone Hotel

That's seriously what I feel like watching this team over the last four games. Just one bumbling idiot of a move after another.

I have to admit I wasn't too hopeful that Brian Lawrence would do much last night. But I did see him in Milwaukee pitch against a pretty good team...I thought maybe he'd surprise us.

And getting up 4 runs in the first three innings, I thought, this is a done deal. They're unstoppable.

Ha (for Sele), Ha (for Bloeneweis), Ha (for Sosa), Ha (for Smith), and Ha (for Collazo).

At least look at the bright side. Mota didn't pitch.

And why on God's green earth wasn't Pelfrey or Humber starting tonight? Why?

I know the SNY crews were talking about it, but i was on the phone, so I didn't hear why. Did Willie have a better answer than "Lawrence is one of my 'guys.'"

Pitiful. Absolutely pitiful. And I'm done. Put a fork in me, like Britney's career. Except a spread in Penthouse isn't going to revive me or the Mets now.

Aw, c'mon Coop, you're not even going to give the spread in Penthouse a fighting chance? LOL hee hee hee

What we are now seeing with this team is the result of what people like you and me have been complaining about all year, only to be told one or two variations of the following "fan cliches:" 1) we're still in first place; 2) what kind of fan are you, you have no faith in the team; 3) they always bounce back; 4) we're still in fist place. The fucking fans are as bad with the cliches as are the players, the managers, the announcers, and everyone else. LOL

It's all coming to fruition in the worst possible way. One can no longer say it's just against the Phillies that we seem to be hitting the wall. Take a good look at this team's record, and you'll see that they're not and they've not been more than simply around a .500 team for a long time. That doesn't cut it when you have a hot team chasing your tail.

So basically, from here on out -- fuck 'em. I feel the same way you do. I'm not wasting my time watching a clueless manager and a bunch of overpaid underachievers ruin the rest of my season. If they get their shit together and start playing like they're capable of playing, fine. If not, fuck 'em, I've had enough of them and their Shirley mentality this year. LOL

I almost would have rather watched Deal or No Deal. It was that painful a game.
