And according to MLB.com’s Marty Noble, so might the Mets:
Another loss to the Nats, another early lead squandered and another bullpen breakdown. Assembly-line losing.
There’s no good way to lose; that was reaffirmed on Tuesday night, when the Mets’ ninth-inning charge fell one run short and produced little lasting impact. But there are worst ways to lose. And that became evident on Wednesday, when a 5-0 lead proved insufficient — just as a 4-0 lead twice proved inadequate last week in Washington.
“It does make you sick when you see the same thing over and over,” Wagner said. “It’s driving us crazy.”
Awesome! At least I know if I’m on the train to Crazy-ville that this team is coming with me.
Next up, that push over of a team known as the St. Louis Cardinals. Oh, wait, last time we played them in the fall they kicked our ass too. Awesome!!!!
