I wonder if my the end of the week you're reading this blog thinking "Man, Metstradamus is slipping...he's writing the same thing over...and over...and over again. Well folks, there's only so many recipes for Loser Kiev that I can cook up for you. There are only so many words in the English language that I can think of for "The Mets dropped another one to the Atlanta Braves tonight at Turner Field."
Le Rencontré a tombé un autre l'un à l'Atlanta Courageux ce soir au Champ de Turner.
Het Ontmoete dat laten wordt vallen een andere een naar het Atlanta Trotseert vanavond aan Turner Veld.
L'Incontrato ha fatto cadere un altro un all'Atlanta Coraggioso stasera al Campo di Turner.
Das sich Getroffen lassen fallen ein anderer Ein zu das Atlanta Tapfer heute Abend an Turner Feld.
Det Møtt falle enda et et til Atlanta Modig i kveld på Turner Felt.
It's one thing after another for Det Møtt as tonight's 3-1 loss...dare I say it, may have signaled the end of the line. What else can you think as Pedro Martinez, Det Møtt's silver bullet, turns out to be a blank as the lineup has failed him as they have failed every other starting pitcher a countless number of times down the stretch.
What else can you think as the Braves make the smartest move of the trading deadline by acquiring Kyle Farnsworth, who mowed down Det Møtt without so much as a peep tonight, while Omar Minaya's idea of fortifying the bullpen is getting Steve Nash's evil twin to throw a 80 mph fastball magnified to Miguel Cabrera's bat.
What else can you think as the following conversation takes place after the sixth inning:
Fluff has been an offensive surprise, but he's made the two biggest bonehead plays of the season...along with having the biggest head in the league.
Castro: All right boys, we got out of that one...only down by a run.
Randolph: What are you talking about?
Castro: It's 2-1, right?
Randolph: No Fluff, it's 3-1!
Randolph: Giles scored from second on the groundout by Franco!!!
Castro: (Deep in thought) Ooooooooh, that's why the crowd was going nuts on a 1-3 putout...he sco
Randolph (Cutting off Castro) YEEESSSS HE SCOOORRRED!!!!
Ladies and gentlemen, I don't want to be Chicken Little, but it's late enough in the season to think about getting the shovel from the back of the garage and scooping a heap of dirt on Det Møtt's 2005 season.
