R.A. Dickey may very well be the single worst pitcher in the history of Major League Baseball. And he shut out the Mets.
Felix Hernandez never had an at bat in the major leagues before. And he hit a grand slam off of a 94 mph fastball out of the strike zone (with his eyes closed – check the video).
Johan Santana has a 2.04 ERA in his last four starts. And he’s 0 and 4.
Only the Mets.
They are now 3-4 under Jerry Manuel. Guess it wasn’t the manager after all, huh? Clearly, their chance to win it all was in 2006. It’s time to cut the dead weight (Delgado, Castillo, etc.) and rebuild around Reyes and Wright.
The rest of us get to live with the embarassment of being Mets fans. But we’re used to that, aren’t we?
