Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad

The Mets showed some promise early on this season, and then had the meltdown everyone expected. August was pretty rough. The good news is that I spent August out of the country.

Still, even with the (expected) disappointment, the Mets had three pretty significant highlights:

  1. Johan Santana had the first no-hitter in Mets history.
  2. David Wright broke the Mets all-time hits record.
  3. R.A. Dickey has won (at least) 20 games.

And somehow, having attended a total of about a half dozen games at Bailout Ballpark, I was actually in the stands for two of them.

Johan’s no-no…

And David’s sixty-foot dribbler to break the record…

David’s hit was just the other night, and he got some gentle ribbing from his first-base coach on the lameness of his record-breaking hit, especially since his previous at-bat was a 390-foot out.

Anyway, this is just my chance to gloat that I managed to see some pretty good stuff out at Bailout Ballpark in this (yet another) disappointing Mets season.
