September 25, 2008 I thought he was going to make himself known and cement himself in Mets lore by being the hero in last night's game against the Cubs--a RBI walk, a (seemingly) big double and great play in the field, of course the Mets had wasted his efforts and maybe cost themselves another season--by the time this makes it to the "memories" page we'll all know if the collapse is complete. Hopefully, the reason I found myself on this page yesterday was prophetic, but at the moment the word "pathetic" comes to mind more often when thinking of the Mets (how can you not get Murphy in from third with NO OUTS in the 9th in a tie game, with the pennant on the line!)
Oh well, back to Martinez--I bet he earned himself a start (or four) over these last four games. Hopefully he'll earn a few more posts for himself...
