Wright doesn't get an error for that botched pop up vs. the Phillies. Church doesn't get an error for missing 3rd. Also the Mets mistakes come in bunches.
    During key points in the game, at that.

    And other teams don't make plays that are the equivalent of that? The Mets are the only team that makes those mental mistakes? Please. I just named 8 teams with a better record then the Mets with close to as many or more errors this season.

    Obviously the Mets have made a ton of dumb plays, but most of the league is guilty of the same things and nobody says a damn word about that, but the Mets get their own dedicated blooper reels, it is unnecessarily singling them out.

    Where did anybody say that? You might want to learn how to actually read before talking with the big boys.

    The reason those teams have a better record is partly because those errors have directly caused the Mets to lose games. That's why their errors are particularly glaring.

    I've never seen a player miss 3B on what would be the go ahead run in the 9th inning, and then have a few errors to lose the game in bottom of the inning.

    I've never seen a player drop a routine fly ball that would of ended the game in the bottom of the 9th, and dropping that ball allowed the tying and winning run to score.

    Have you?

    And I haven't seen a player mistake how many outs there were and throw a live ball into the stands in almost a decade, but Milton Bradley did that one. I've seen teams walk in the winning run (The Mets did that once this year too), I've seen teams wild pitch in the winning run, I've seen teams make errors that put winning runs on base, move them over, and score them. Maybe the Mets errors have more style points or something, but an error is an error. I see no reason for them to be making blooper reals for them and not anybody else, it's a low blow on their part. That's all I'm saying.

    haha, and who was the last player to do that before him? Benny Agbayani, of the NY Mets.

    Yes, but what TD mentioned was this year and all one team...game losing mistakes.

    Thats exactly what it is. Style points.

    The Mets don't just make errors, they make absurd comedy reel errors. We've all seen a guy over throw a base or misplay a grounder. It's baseball. The Mets this year have gone above and beyond the typical error way more often than other teams have.

    It's Martinez landing on his face, it's Murphy looking like a little league player once or twice a week, it's Evans catching a grounder and dropping it on the way to touch first. Not exactly what I'd describe as "an error is an error"

    Sure they mean the same thing in the stat column -- similarly to the way an infield bleeder and a ball ripped off the wall could both end up as singles -- but we all know that they're not the same thing.

    Keep thinking that the world is out to get them, that everybody is picking on the the poor little Mets... kicking them while they're down. It will all stop when they quit the buffoonery.

    The "Shets" are an embarrassment.
    They make rooting for the Jets seem intelligent.
