It's not easy being Mets


I'm not saying that I won't watch the Mets play anymore this season, but I've more or less given up on them for this season. Granted, I'm enormously frustrated -- just a few short weeks ago they were mixing it up with the "big boys" in first or second place, less than 2 or 3 games out of first place or in first place. Now, the only thing keeping them from the cellar of the NL East is the pathetic (and thanks for them) Washington Nationals (nee Montreal Expos).

I realize it's hard to totally remake a team after losing three key players (Jose Reyes and the two "Carlos"es -- Beltran and Delgado), but it's also hard to keep on hoping only to see my hopes dashed against the craggy rocks of defeat again and again.

At this point, I'm glad I root for other teams besides the Mets. My LA Angels, Boston Red Sox (Why I'm a Red Sox fan) and St. Louis Cardinals (who I mostly like for two reasons -- My Dad's been a fan since his childhood years and they have a vegetarian manager) are all in first place and have been in the "thick of things" for most, if not all of the season so far (KI"H).

I'm still a Mets fan and I'll still hope for a turnaround, but, from my perspective, I'm hoping one of my other teams will get to the "big game".
