And How the Hell did I Forget to Post this Article Earlier Today?

Alright, one more thing to piss you and me off: This piece in the New York Observer sums up what we Mets fans have known for months now -- this team is full of themselves and felt "bored" by the regular season.

I mean, how about these for some pull quotes:

“We have so much talent that sometimes we relax a little bit and then we get ourselves in trouble” -- Pedro Martinez

“Sometimes when you’re a team as talented as we are—I don’t know if I’d use the word ‘bored,’ but I guess you can get complacent sometimes. You don’t pay attention to details every now and then because you do have a ton of talent and think you can on most days do everything you wanna do.” --Tom Glavine

When two sure fire Hall of Famers say this, you know your team is toast.

Again, if they don't care, why should I? I'd like to close by featuring a damning line from my friend Jason at FAFIF, who is as big as a Mets fan as I know on this planet:

"If the Mets somehow cheat the hangman, what then? Don't tell me about the 2005 Chicago White Sox and the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals, because I don't want to hear it. I want to hear why on earth I should give a fuck about the 2007 New York Mets. Because there's far too much evidence that the 2007 New York Mets themselves do not. "

True 'dat. Now I can catch upon those DVDs piling up next to my remotes.

Should Pederson take some heat for the bullpens late season implosion and the recommendation to trade kazmir a few years ago?

nah, the Kazmir trade set a good chain of events in motion (Omar coming in, getting Pedro, etc). I do blame Omar for assemlbling a subpar bullpen. But above all, I blame the ego of this team.
