The Mets are Done but Season Still Fun

by Mike Kent on August 24, 2009

It’s never easy to see your team lose, but when your team is done anyway it makes it a bit easier to watch.

As a Mets fan, this season has just not gone the way I hoped it would. But what has happened has happened and the season is over.

Is it easy to see your team go down and lose player by player and game by game? No.

But can I enjoy the game even if I know the Mets are going to lose? Yes.

Since the Mets are done I do not feel like there are any must-win games.

Even if we go now on a five game winning streak, at best we may be back in the Wild Card race only about 7 games out.

And behind at least five teams, that may also go on winning streaks later in the year.

And if we go on a five game losing streak its OK, these games do not really matter much.

I am OK with the Mets losing, and I l love seeing great players playing great ball even if it is against the Mets.

Like when Albert Pujols hit the Grand Slam in the top of the 10th to win a game against the Mets.

Yes, it was not fun that we lost the game on that, you can’t root for Albert Pujols to hit Home Runs against you.

But it was fun to see him get four RBI getting him closer to maybe winning the triple crown.

I just see this season is over, and there is nothing I can do about it.

And there are not many people I can blame.

Omar put out a great team on Opening Day for the Mets and Jerry has lost all his top players to injuries.

I guess we can blame the medical staff, but I do not know any of them so its hard to hate them.

All we can do is hope Omar cleans house down there.

So as the season comes down to its last month and a half we Mets fans should relax, take it easy.

Nothing to worry about, and not much we can do about it (as if there’s something we can do about it when they’re in the race).

So sit back, relax Mets fans.

There is not much more baseball to enjoy this year so get all you can out of what is left.

Who knows, its never to late for the Mets to get their first No-Hitter in franchise history. And with the great Johan Santana on our side, you never know when he may get one.

Let’s watch the young Bobby Parnell grow and become a good baseball player, and Daniel Murphy is always fun to watch.

Maybe another Angel Pagan inside the park home run is on the way (update: the way he led off the next day was just as cool), and maybe another cycle is in the stars for the Mets.

Either way, enjoy what we have left, enjoy every pitch left in the season.

And then as they say, there is always next year!
