I had to.
The Mets are in bad shape. After looking so hopeful after sweeping the Subway Series in the Bronx, the Mets offense turned about-face on Tuesday, managing only three runs through 18 innings.
To cap it all off, the Mets MVP so far, Ryan Church, took a knee to the head on the final play of game two, capping off a terrible day for the Mets in Atlanta.
Church slammed into Yunel Escobar's knee as he slid into second and Escobar turned the game ending double play. Church stayed on the ground a while, bloodied and dazed. He is reported to have suffered a mild concussion, very reminiscent of his collision with Marlon Anderson back on March 1.
Hopefully Church will only miss a few days, but the way this team's luck has fared this season, I'm sure he will be out for longer.
Just out luck, right?
