What You'll Miss While You're Watching Football

With their pursuit of a .500 season behind them, the question now becomes just how bad will the Mets be?  Will they earn one of the coveted ten protected picks that will allow Sandy Alderson to go after any available free agent without penalty?  Will they secure their fifth consecutive fourth place finish?

Sitting at 66 wins on the season with 14 games to go, the Mets current boast the eighth worst record in baseball, leaving them in line for that aforementioned protected pick.

Today the Mets will send fifth starter and overall team leader in wins, Dillon Gee (11-10) to the mound against the Marlins' Tom Koehler (3-10).  A win today would be the team's first series victory since taking two of three from the Washington Nationals between 8/30 and 9/1.

One thing of interest for me will be the attendance for today's game.  Regardless of what the paid attendance numbers have been of late, I don't think the Mets have surpassed more than 10,000 fans in the stands on this homestand.  Last night's game was easily the worst, and with football on this afternoon I'm not sure I would expect much better today.

Enjoy the game today, whichever sport you decide to tune into.  As always, make sure you have a beer for us too!
