Worlds Are Colliding

In Mets Land, there are two worlds: the Real World and the Bizarro World. The Real World is the same ol' song and dance, win one-lose one and your closer gets arrested for beating up his father-in-law. In the Bizarro World, the Mets are Amazin'. We have awesome offense and great pitching and your ace pitcher doesn't get accused of sexual harrassment.

With the pitching performance of one Robert Allen Dickey tonight, the worlds are colliding. You see, Robert Allen Dickey pitched a complete game, one-hit shut out. And the hit was to Cole Hamels, so if you want to look at it from another perspective, Robert Allen Dickey no-hit the starting eight players. Holla at yo' boy! I'll classify this performance, although we expect solid outings from Robert Allen Dickey, as Bizarro.

Carlos Beltran hit an RBI double. Mike Hessman hit a ball that was out of the park but was ruled a triple and I have never seen my Facebook News Feed explode in anger so quickly. This was all the run support that Robert Allen Dickey got, which is very, very real. The Mets offense combined for five hits, one of which was a double by David Wright that *fingers crossed* will break him out of his slump and keep my strikeout counter silent (although I would love to get to 200).

So, my Mets expectations for the second half of the season are very low: maintain a .500 record and win two games in a row...and guess what??? The Mets have done that for the first time since June 22-23 against Detroit! Actually, I'm dead serious. I have the Pocket Schedule O' Suckage to prove it. As Lou Brown would say, "We won one yesterday. If we win today, that's two in a row. If we win tomorrow, it's called a winning streak. It's happened before."

Lets make it happen again. Pretty please?
