I haven’t written much this month and am not likely to write regularly for the next couple of weeks. And, though I’m not very superstitious, I felt I should write something in the hopes that it would break the horrid slump the team has been in since my last post. Since that post on September 4 the Mets have gone 6-8 and have allowed Philadelphia to make a race of it. The Phillies are now only 1.5 games back and the Mets have only 9 games to go.
Once again I must point out that Kevin Kernan‘s column in the New York Post on August 26 proclaiming “It’s Not Over Yet, But NL East Race is Over” was way off the mark. The Mets have gone 10-13 since that article appeared proving the old Yogi Berra adage that “It ain’t over ’til it’s over”. It’s going to be a nail biter.
