Tired of the Cowards
I’ve been watching Mets baseball for over 30 years. It doesn’t matter if it’s the 1986 or the 2015 team, it’s never easy. After last night’s admittedly disheartening loss, I saw way too many Mets fans giving up and/or trying to come to terms with losing the World Series. It reminded me of this:
We saw a historically inept offense transform with two trades, some health, and yes, some luck. The team had a debilitating loss to the Padres. They rebounded, swept the Nationals, and claimed first place. They would’ve give it back.
The Mets then lost a potential clincher at home in the NLDS forcing them to have to travel cross-country to face presumptive Cy Young winner Zack Greinke. The Mets would win the do or did game on the road to advance to the NLCS to face the favored Cubs. The Mets swept the Cubs and won the pennant.
Yes, the last two games were hard, but you know what? We’ve all forgotten how hard the regular season was. It was brutal. That coupled with putting themselves on the brink of losing the NLDS, the entire season has been one tense moment after another. What have anyone the idea that: (1) this was going to be easy; and/or (2) the Mets don’t have what it takes to win this series now.
The Mets are going home, and they have Noah Syndergaard pitching in Game 3. We all know he’s dominant at home. It just takes that first win to get things going. You have to like Thor’s chances. It then becomes a series, and that’s where things will get interesting.
Overall, nothing is over. Look how far the Mets are. Look at his they got here. If you don’t think the Mets can pull this off, I don’t know what to tell you other than:
LETS GO METS!
