ER, The Resident, House, etc…

The Mets season has now become close to a television medical drama.

EMS tried reviving them trying to get a heartbeat from a lifeless team. They rush this defeated body to the ER. The doctors and nurses check for a pulse. They find none. The doctor yells to bring the heart defibrillator. He orders everyone to stand back. The nurse lubricates the plates.

With sweat dripping from his forehead and his hands trembling, the doc knows this is a life he is trying to save, he yells, “Clear!”

They repeat the process again.

“Clear!”, yells the doctor.

Nothing again!

In a fit of anger and desperation, the Doctor screams at that lifeless body, “Come on, man! I’m not letting go of you! Don’t give up!” And he punches the patient in the chest. Suddenly, the Mets eyes open. The heart begins to beat again and there is a pulse!

Doctors Jeff Mc Neil, Amed Rosario, Michael Conforto, J.D. Davis, and Pete Alonso, brash in their ego would not give up on the rest of the team and started a resurgence after the All-Star break that no one expected or believed.

The Mets were left for dead, But Alonso tweeted to the masses that they worked so hard to get to where they are at and they needed the New York Mets faithful not quit on them! Rise up to the forces of darkness from Philadelphia, Washington, Atlanta, and Miami.

The Mets are back into the race and are only two games out of the second wild card. On July 12, they only had a nine percent chance to make the wild card. So much for experts and odds-makers. This team has never been one to go with the flow. A year-long rollercoaster ride is taking off again.

While I am on vacation, making my trek to Flushing this weekend to see my Mets play Washington, I was thinking I was going to have the pick of the litter for seats at an empty stadium. I’m happy to say that will not be the case and the Mets are back into it with a new heart and vigor no one expected. This can be another 1969 as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Amazins first World Series title.
