That Was a Nice Cherry On Top of the Mets’ Season

2009 September 14

This is the face of the man who effectively ended the Mets’ 2009 season. No heartbreak on the last day of the season this year! Eliminated on September 13th! Man, the Mets are so going to blow by 90 losses.

Tonight, Pedro Martinez threw 8 scoreless innings on 130 pitches. Did he ever throw 130 pitches on the Mets? (Baseball-Reference says he only threw 120 pitches once, in 2005) I can’t believe this shit. I definitely thought he was asking too much at the beginning of the season, but at this point, it looks like he may be worth that $5 million he was asking over only 1/4 of the season. His 2.87 ERA is now better than Johan Santana’s. I want to die.

At least the Mets didn’t get swept, I guess. And David Wright actually had a two-homer game yesterday. I wasn’t sure if that would happen ever again. Josh Thole also went 4-4 in the first game of the doubleheader today. Those are about the only positive things I can think of right now. Oh, and Carlos Beltran is still able to stand after playing a bunch of games. That’s cool.

Fuck this season.
