There's nothing good about a 5-game losing streak but it's a long season. It just seems so bad because it's a bleepy way to start the season.
thats a good point.
5 game losing streaks happen all the time in baseball.
It is just magnified when it is at the start of the season.
Tomorrow is an important game though, IMO
Pedro needs to step up and put a halt to the losing, or it can start to effect the phsyche of the players.
Overall, they will be fine. They won't compete this year, not with that pitching staff, but its not like they will go '02 Detroit on ya or anything either.
Am I mistaken, or did wrveres just make a non-biased statement about the Mets?
Come on, man, say we suck again, I'm getting worried....
I agree with Amazinz and wr. 5 game losing streaks happen a lot. Adopting a method from basketball, Dean Oliver gives a certain chance of different types of losing streaks and how often it can happen to certain teams... I'll just double the numbers, since 82 basically is half of 162.
A team with a 5-game losing streak will most likely end up with between 74 and 82 wins, although it's spread pretty evenly between 66 and 90.
