Right before the season, I made a post titled "What Are You Looking Forward To This Season?" I came across it recently and some of our answers are painful to read now. A sample:
- Nick Evans and Danny Murphy becoming a one-two punch like Dykstra and Backman used to be
- Watching David Wright win MVP
- Watching Jose put it all together and becoming the best SS in the league.
- Watching Pelfrey and Maine pitch great behind Johan this year
- A bullpen that can hold leads
- One word: Champtions
- Daniel Murphy bitch-slapping my disbelief that he shouldnt be the starting LF
At the same time, there were a few comments which worked out. Unfortunately most had to do with Citi Field:
- The food at New Shea to blow away every other ballpark’s, be it in taste or price
- Drinking good beer at Citi Field, instead of the swill that they've served upstairs at Shea from time immemorial
- The atlanta braves falling into an open volcano (note: Braves had a decent year but didn't make the playoffs, so to the volcano it is)
- A huge bounce back year from castillo
It's been a tough season, hopefully made more enjoyable by reading/participating at Amazin' Avenue. Keep the faith in 2010.
