    Enjoy the humor but isn’t this a bit premature? The Mets ARE still in first place and in line to make the playoffs.

    Let’s hope the team sees this and uses it as bulletin board fodder. God knows seeing their loss column bloat hasn’t lit a fire under their ass yet.

    Of course it’s premature … my hope was that I’d have to post these pictures before the team started winning. And also as kind of a reverse jinx. Let’s hope the win tonight means it worked!

    I love reverse juice, Joe.

    Growing up in a household, where my father (the Pittsburgh Pirate fan) would tauntingly mock the Mets with “Oh, here comes a Homerun” or “This is where it all turns around for them — the play that gets them all the way to the World Series”…..I’ve always worked reverse psychology into my repertoire as well.

    Anytime I get too down on the Mets lately, they’ll find a way of picking it up at the last possible second.

    Reverse Juice: Learn it, Live it, Love it.
