You Know It's Bad When...

...a Don Henley song pops into my head (and by that I mean a song sung by Don Henley, not a song about Don Henley, like Mojo Nixon's "Don Henley Must Die"), in this case that song that goes "Kick 'em when they up/Kick 'em when they down."

Tonight I tuned in just in time to watch Victor Diaz take a 3-2 pitch for a called third strike that ended the ballgame. It was the first time all season that I saw dejected looks on the faces of Mets players, looks that said, We aren't going to make the playoffs.

The Mets need to start winning, not so much to make the playoffs--that ain't happening this year--but to prevent more crappy classic rock songs from seeping into my melon.
