Blog Roundup: Riding Out the World Series

Seeing the Cardinals back in the World Series has reopened old wounds for some Mets fans.  The optimism of 2006 came crashing down in Game 7 of the NLCS.  The subsequent collapses of 2007 and 2008 washed away what remained of the hope created that season.  Meanwhile, the anticipation of the offseason is building.

Blog time:

  • Faith and Fear in Flushing remembers the pain, and says it’s time to let it go.
  • Patrick Flood looks at how Jason Bay would have fared at Shea Stadium last year.  Bonus analysis: Yankees home runs if they played at Petco Park.
  • Daily Stache wonders if Mike Piazza should go into the Hall of Fame as a Met or a Dodger.
  • Metsmerized asks if you’re really ready to see Jose Reyes in another team’s uniform – like maybe a Phillies uniform?
  • Mets Fever says the walls could come crashing down after the World Series.
  • Ropolitans has a still from the latest Stand up to Cancer ad, showing Ron Darling standing up for “My catcher.”

    If Reyes leaves, seeing him in a Phillies (or even Nats) uniform would be hard.

    NYT on last night’s gem from the guy with the porn star mustache noted:

    “Since 1972, only three other starters have gone at least eight shutout innings with two hits or fewer in the World Series: Tom Glavine in 1995, Roger Clemens in 2000 and Kenny Rogers in 2006. ”

    All with some Mets connection. Rogers had some postseason — embarrassing the Yanks and winning the only game Detroit won in the WS. Guy had his moments.

    On the walls, with Mets pitching, I still don’t understand how that won’t be a net loss overall. For the future? I knew the Cards would be pesky, but this is a bit much.
