The Mets are 10% of the way towards making me look right
I took a lot of heat from Mets fans when I predicted their team would lose 90 games. I have nothing against the Mets, but they weren't good last year and they are older and have the financial stink of the Madoff scandal hanging over the team.
They might dismantle at any moment.
Well, I was called all sorts of names... my sexual preferences were questioned... my weight was pointed out... my IQ was mocked...
And as a Red Sox fan, I really shouldn't be throwing stones about bad starts. But STILL! After the Mets dropped 4 games at home to the Rockies, the first 3 by one run, the Mets are at 9 losses.
8% of the way through the season and they are 10% of the way towards 90 losses. That means they can improve their rate of play and still hit 90.
Yeah, I know the Red Sox have 9 losses as well. There's a difference between a bad start and a bad team.
90 losses. They are 10% of the way there before our taxes are filed.
