I just got an email from a Mets fan deflated at the news that Pedro is out for the post season.
To her, I simply say: The Mets don’t win because they have the best pitching, hitting or fielding.
The Mets win because the stars are aligned in just the right way and the universe has decided that we have suffered enough.
Pedro has nothing to do with it.
The Mets will win if they’re supposed to. If not, they won’t.
Remember: The Mets suck. We just love and believe in them anyway.
