Obligatory Suicidal Post aka "Same Old Mets"

When I started the blog they gave me a manual that says I have to write posts when the Mets have annoying frustrating pennant race choke type losses.

Is “Same Old Mets” a phrase yet?

I am not hitting the panic button yet.

They will make the playoffs this time.  Willie is gone.  Jerry will get us there.  Some idiots from the bullpen will break our hearts in games 1, 2 and 5 of the NLDS, but Jerry will get us there.

Is Joe Torre A Hall of Famer?

Joe should be in the Hall.  He was a pretty good player, plus the whole Yankee thing….

Dick Allen, Gil Hodges, Jim Kaat, Tony Oliva, Al Oliver, Vada Pinson, Ron Santo, Luis Tiant, Joe Torre and Maury Wills will be considered for election by the Veterans Committee for enshrinement in 2009, with votes to be cast by Hall of Fame members this fall. Any candidate to receive 75 percent of the vote among all ballots cast will earn election to the Hall of Fame and will be enshrined on July 26, 2009. There are 64 living Hall of Famers.
