The New York Mets' season to this point was summed up by Keith Hernandez's comments after Luis Castillo died last night as a result of falling down some steps. Mr. Hernandez just kept incredulously repeating the line "Are you serious?" a few times before play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen answered Keith's rhetorical question with "Yes, Keith. Luis Castillo is dead".
Luis Castillo's funeral will be held at dusk this Friday at Citi field. All season ticket holders are welcome to attend the funeral on July 15 when the Mets give away Magnetic Picture Frames to the first 15,000 fans.
In other more recent news, the Mets scored 9 runs, shut out the Cards and Jon Niese is dead too.
