A Little Spin?

My friend Jay is a huge Mets fan so even though my baseball loyalty lies with the Yankees I've been known to attentd a Mets game every now & then. In the past we have split a Mets "six pack" ticket package so we can get tickets to the Yanks-Mets games. The Mets have been so pitiful the last few years I always look forward to receiving their ticket solicitations since their PR dept. has to really work overtime to spin their suckiness. So I really got a chuckle at this years....

The clubs best record since 2000, the emergence of sensational young talent on our roster, and a bullish approach towards key players acquisitions this offseason are generating significant buzz and anticipation as we head towards 2006.

The clubs best record since 2000? Talk about grasping at straws. Someone needs to get a big raise for coming up with that spin. Technically it's true -- but the love of Bobby Valentine, they lost 91 games in 04, it doesn't get much worse than that. Well it does, if you were the 03 Mets. Let's review the Mets record since 2000:

W L

2000 94 68

2001 82 80

2002 75 86

2003 66 95

2004 71 91

2005 83 79

Do I have a point to make other than how much this made me laugh? No, not really. How many more days til spring training?

Oh, and I'm totally addicted to Lays Wavy chips. Seriously addicted.
