I have to think that Terry is a dead man walking.

I'm impressed.


Made a really costly error again last night on a play that Cabrera could have made.

The Tuesday Night Mets are quietly turning out to be an inferior version of the Sunday Afternoon Mets. Last night was the third Tuesday this season they simply weren't competitive or watchable.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

Looking into this a little further: the Mets have now lost 8 of their last 9 scoring a total of 25 runs in those 8 losses.
13 of those 25 runs came in five different games in the 8th, 9th, or 10th innings.
- they scored 2 in the 9th only to lose by 1
- 4 runs in the 9th to lose by 1
- 3 runs in the 8th to lose by 2
- 1 in the 10th to lose by 1
- and last night 3 in the 9th to lose by 3
