Welcome to another edition of Bad Baseball. In this 3rd segment the Mets show us yet another way to lose miserably in a baseball game and how to properly get swept in all 3 of them.
Student Blog Reader: Um, if a team is losing and it is (mostly) due to a lack of runs, then what would be the outcome if they started to ignite their bats and, henceforth, bring in a lot more than 1 or 2 runs a game?
Wise Blog Teacher: Ah, my son. You ask wisely. One team may go forth and score an abundance of runs but if its opposition lives by the famous adage of "everything you can do, I can do better," then the first team is destined for failure.
Meet the Mets; a team that has lost 4 in a row, plays with a lack of urgency and has less W's than Borat's motto of "Wa-wwa-wwi-wwa."
Too bad. The Mets are not "very nice" and are not having "great success".
The only thing worse than the Mets these days are the home run calls coming out of St. Louis. Ryan Church, in yesterday's game, clobbered a 2 run homer deep into the stands and this is how a Cardinal's fan heard it while driving down the I-76.
But wait, even though the Mets have come to a 6-9 record going into their next series with Washington, think positively! Things can't get any worse than they already are... or can they?
This Upcoming Monday's Headlines: METS GET SWATTED BY NATS. LOSE ALL 3.
If the case... break glass and... just knock me out.
