9/3 - Marlins 5, Mets 4

To go back to Mike's post of a couple days ago, this was a heartbreaker. The best line I heard about this loss was "Shingo Takatsu in Japanese means 'Danny Graves.'" It's not fair to put this latest rehabilition project in with the bases-loaded, but this guy used to be a closer, so he should be used to tight spots. The second guessing will probably go on for a while, but I like the fact that Willie Randolph didn't seem to care and was ready for the roasting by the press.

Of course, if they lose their fifth in a row today, I'll be ready to call for his hide. At least that's what most Met fans seem to do on WFAN. It's amazing how many people think Randolph is a complete moron. Apparently these people haven't seen the fact that the 2005 Mets seem to care about winning, as opposed to the lethargic 2004 edition. I'm in the minority, but I like our manager.
