I'm going off the rails on a crazy train

Mets 3, Nats 2

This team is going to drive me absolutely bonkers. How do you have runners in scoring position with less than two outs more than once in a game and only score two runs?

And despite what I was yelling at the TV when Zimmerman's double in the eighth touched down, there's no way Alfonso Soriano should have been sent home. And even though sliding headfirst was stupid, Lo Duca still dropped the ball. Tschida blew the call, although his view was probably blocked by Lo Duca's body. But a blown call is no excuse for wasting so many scoring opportunities.

Livan pitched very well, but he blew two different double plays, which may have cost the Nats a precious run on defense.

I was ready to give Vidro props for a great day after his ninth inning single left the bat, but he decided he wanted to win the game right there, and got himself thrown out at second to end the game.

Stupid baserunning. Stupid fielding. Terrible clutch hitting.

The Nats are driving me crazy. Must be baseball season.

I hate to say it, but I have a bad feeling that Soriano is going to be a disaster for you. His play in left was atrocious today, and he had the best angle out of anyone to see that Lo Duca dropped the ball. The ump didn't see it, I didn't see it, but he did. Where's the argument? Where is the passion?

Why would you hate to say it? You're a Mets fan! ;)

In all seriousness, you're not going to get any argument about Soriano from most of the "Natosphere." The sticky situation with him switching positions should have been very obvious to Bowden, and even though he succeeded, you now have a wounded ego in that clubhouse. That alone should get JimBo shitcanned.

I'm at least happy we got guys IN scoring position today. I know we stranded 8, but our lineup seriously looks promising. If Zim can bat around .300 and Soriano can limit his strikeouts, we might have one of the better lineups in the NL.

It took me till today to fully appreciate this because it seemed like every situation we had a good hitter at the plate, save Watson and Clayton.

Don't let the Nats drive ya too crazy yet... lets give them a few mulligans and just enjoy the fact that it's the season again. :)
