We needed 3 teams to win and 1 to lose in order to create the most awesome playoff to the playoffs scenario in the history of the collection of shit that is the National League. Instead, 2 teams lost, and the ramifications of today's games were about as anticlimactic as an old man in a brothel. Sure we still get to see the Rockies play the Padres in a 1-game playoff for the NL Wild Card, but Fate could have caused much more psychological pain. Imagine if the Mets would have won today, but then lost tomorrow to the Phillies in the match to decide the NL East Champion. Then, just think if they would have beat the Friars on Tuesday to face Colorado in the Wild Card playoff game. And they were winning by 3 going into the bottom of the 9th. And then Troy Tulowitzki hit a 2-out grand salami to beat them. Dr. Kevorkian is back on the streets, and I believe he would be in high demand in Queens. Anyway, the moral of the story here is that I'm a cruel bastard. Mr. Met's mood is still optimistic though.
