Meet the Mets, Kid

Well, last night didn't go according to plan. That guy Max Scherzer I raved about in the last post just absolutely pooped himself out there on the Citi Field mound. We are used to this as Mets fans though. Whatever could go wrong will go wrong. Your grandpa texted me after Mets killer, Josh Bell, hit a 2-run homerun in the FIRST INNING, saying "Next year. We are done." That's the mentality that we have had for many years as its the only way to defend against the inevitable Mets elimination. Tough life, but I promise it will be better for you.

So just so you know what happened, the apparently "powerless" padres hit not 1, not 2, not 3 but 4 (!) home-runs last night off Max which just absolutely crushed any and all hope.

Yu Darvish carved the Mets up all night long, as is tradition, in any and every big spot we had. The Mets had so many opportunities to cut into the lead early but a Vogelbach game tying homer in the bottom of the first missed by just a few feet, Alonso struck out with 1st and 3rd with one out and Marte couldn't be driven in from 2nd base with no outs in the 2nd. Just no sign of life from the New York Mets offense last night.

BUT tonight I am hopefully things will change and our luck as Mets fans will forever be altered (this wont backfire I am sure of it). Tonight we have Jacob deGrom, one of the best pitchers of all time, starting in an absolute electric atmosphere at Citi Field. The Padres have been dominated by deGrom his whole career. He has 82 strikeouts against them in 70 innings pitched and a 1.28 ERA. So tonight I believe that the Mets are going to tie this series back up and we are going to get an incredible Sunday night baseball matchup to see who's going to play the Dodgers next week.

So this is the life of a Mets fan. There's a lot of hope and optimism but it usually ends in heartbreak. Even though its a tough life to live I would have it no other way. It will build a ton of character and you'll appreciate things a lot more in life when you don't always get nice things (i.e. winning seasons and playoff appearances). Things would be a lot more boring if you just expected to win all the time. It would be almost as boring as listening to Michael Kay call a baseball game (He is a Yankees announcer. Not very good).

So although things aren't starting off great, we still got life. And as I told you before, We Gotta Believe!
