Recent news out of the NY Mets camp could make even the most skeptical and pessimistic Mets fan light up with irrepressible excitement and optimism. This website, known as a model of restraint and even-handed reporting, cannot help but proclaim the inevitable turn around in the Mets fortunes this season, based on the following terrific news (reported on SI.com, here: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/baseball/mlb/08/03/mets.injuries.ap/index.html:)
If you're wondering where the first part of the headline comes from, or how it fits in, you can find that here: http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090731/ts_alt_afp/useconomygrowth_20090731135934. It seems the qualifications for "improvement" have really taken a nosedive, not just in the economic world but in the NY Mets world as well. I guess the economy and the Mets have reached approximately equal depths of destitution. Just be thankful we're not at Nationals' level, or we'd all be out of a job. Except me. I'm self employed.
