Game 70 & 71 - Mets
Mets 9, A's 1
Mets 1, A's 0
It's staggering how logic is cast aside in nearly every moment of the baseball season rollercoaster. Early Friday evening my brother-in-law and I were bemoaning the state of the Mets, using expressions like "third place" and "next year" even as the Mets sat atop the division. Two games later -- ones we didn't see a lick of, mind you, just caught periodic updates from -- we're talking about locking in on playoff tickets and whether we'd stand a chance against more complete teams like the Tigers or Red Sox. Neither extreme is sensible in the least, but these are the buffoons you people call your fellow fans.
This is Mets Township. Get used to it.
