Could it Be?

Guy it sucks being a Met fan right now. Having the bats disintegrate against guys like Joel Piniero isn't very promising, and seeing a bullpen we paid quite a bit for perform the way they've been performing definitely makes me cringe. But have you ever thought that it could be that these falters have been one day things for these guys? I mean we know J.J. isn't what he was yesterday, walking two guys in a row to start an inning isn't J.J.'s game. 

And Sean Green throwing that pitch to Jorge Cantu, well, there's really no excuse for it. It was a bad pitch and he knew it. 

Ok so those are two games we may have won if the bullpen didn't blow them. I think we as fans need to take a breath here and look at the game and the team as a whole here. There is a clear need for some leadership outside of Johan Santana, and I think that's obvious. Right now, however, it's important to put the last two years and the memory of them behind us. This is a different team, and people in this community still refuse to believe that. 

So give it time, fans.
