All is Forgiven

ONE AND A HALF GAMES, METS FANS!!! I bet your hairy necks are sweating now. Great win last night for the Phils, highlighted by another Met meltdown. If we take the division and the Mets don’t make the playoffs, it will go down in history right up there with the ’64 Phils. No team has ever blown a 7 game lead with 17 to play, which the Mets will do if they blow it. Dunno if you stayed up last night to watch, but my boy came through in the clutch, and I have thus decided to write him a short letter. Here goes.

Dear Rod,

I am sorry for the way I have treated you over the months. Please be aware that much of it was just frustration over the way that our dumbass GM had treated Chris Coste. That being said, I knew there was only one thing that would allow me to get over what you did against the Marlins when you let Ramirez slide through your legs. And that is what you did last night. Pressure packed situation, two strikes, and you pierce one up the middle. The city welcomes you back into it’s collective bosom. And now, I think i should express my newfound feelings for Rod in song:
We sailed on together
We drifted apart
And here you are by my side

So now I come to you, with open arms
Nothing to hide, believe what I say
So here I am with open arms
Hoping you’ll see what your love means to me
Open arms
