OK, I am obviously frustrated as a Mets fan, but there is a silver lining to this recent Mets "slump." Their holes have been exposed (injuries are no excuse), and they have been exposed early enough for Omar to remedy them. They, of course, are a better team than this and I would prefer them s_itting the bed now than in October, but at least there is a sense of urgency to make adjustments for the stretch run.
I felt last year at the trade deadline (granted, they got Perez, who has been a steal), the Mets went into talks sortof in an aloof manner: all the talk about Oswalt, Zito, etc ... then nothing, then we were left holding the back with a thin staff in the postseason.
In summary, I hope the Mets use this slide as both a wakeup call and an alert to make the necessary moves to position them for a strong second half.
