The Mets end the week where they started, 2nd place.
The week started off slow with yet another rainout, but Red Sox fans still found the time to throw pizza at each other.
When the Mets finally played they once again destroyed the “team to beat”, and the descent of Charlie Manuel into madness began.
Then everyone caught onto Manuel’s pending psychosis, and now they are placing odds on what Good-time Charlie will do next(they even used the same picture we did).
After that, the Mets headed down to Florida where their bats thawed, and some old fashion ass-whuppin’ of one of those Triple-A teams they keep down there commenced.
Then the f*cking Braves came to Shea and made the Mets eat their broccoli.
As a result, the Mets end this week the same way they ended last week, losing 2 of 3 to the Braves and stuck in 2nd place.
Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran continue to rake the ball, and in a week where Major League Baseball remembered Jackie Robinson, we also found the time to remember another pioneering Hall of Famer whose majesty is not remembered nearly enough.
Bottom dwellers Colorado and Washington are next up on the schedule, and the Mets are left wondering whether the lessons they learned this weekend will help them the next time they face Atlanta.
Status: Mets, 11-6(2nd place, 1/2 GB)
