Willie Randolph to Entire World: Hahahahahahaha!

Yeeahh Bitchus! Mets have teh Brewers right where they want 'em!

The New York Mets dropped out of first place with a 1-0 loss to the Washington Nationals last night. If the Mets have better things to do than play baseball, I have better things to do then describe it. You can go see what I wrote on this day last year.

Or you can go see what Jose Reyes is apparently up to, besides disappearing offensively and readying himself to commit a whole bucketful of unfocused mental and physical errors in the next 12 games (link courtesy of "tc").

From Marty "Pants" Noble, some more historical perspective:

The '86 Mets clinched the NL East championship on this date, defeating the Cubs, 4-2, at Shea Stadium. With 17 games remaining, the Mets led the second-place Phillies by 19 games. Gooden pitched a complete game. Dave Magadan, in his first big league start, had three hits and two RBIs. He was removed in the eighth inning in favor of Keith Hernandez, who asked to be on the field for the clinching.

And on this date a year ago, the Mets suffered their fourth consecutive loss, this one at the hands of the Nationals in Washington. They scored three times in the first inning and led, 4-0, after 3 1/2 innings. Final score: Nationals 12, Mets 4. The Mets' lead, seven games five days earlier, was down to 2 1/2 games.
