METS FANS SHARE THEIR MEMORIES OF THE MAY 13, 2003 GAME:Larry
May 16, 2003
Just when you thought the Mets bats MIGHT have actually started to wake up and the pitching settling down and going for a 4-game win streak, the Mets promptly go out and blow a 7-1 lead in the last 2 innings... unbelievable. just unbelievable. And to think they didn't even need the help of Benitez to blow this one! Can it get any worse? Oh wait, it can! The Mets go out the next day and get a couple in the top of the first and proceed to lose that one as well. When will it end?

Art, Art, Art. I know you managed in the AL, but everyone knows that a 7-run lead in Colorado is like having a 1 run lead at Shea. When you are in last place in the NL East and have the chance to put together a 4 game winning streak-YOU DO NOT DECIDE TO "GIVE THE KIDS IN THE BULLPEN SOME WORK" What is wrong with you? I went to bed that night and it was 7-0 in the 7th inning and I figured what could go wrong? When I woke up the next morning and saw the Mets lost 9-8 because of stupidity I couldn't believe it. Why didn't you leave Glavine in the game? He put some runners on base? So what? He probably would have won 7-2 or 7-4 and gotten a complete game.
I'm starting to think your winning record in Oakland was strickly because of the players you had and not because of your savvy managing skills. First you cause a Media Blitzkrieg in the locker room the other night on Piazza without talking to him beforehand (not that moving to first base was a surprise to him but you could have let him know you were going public with the idea) and now this.
Now it's your turn! Tell us what you remember of this game:
