Thanks to a rain delay that held up the start of the game for more than two hours, I was home in time to see the last few innings. When I turned on SNY, Chris Capuano was already out of the game, the Mets were down 4-1 and Nick Evans was hitting into an inning-ending double play. I thought about flipping the channel, but I changed my mind because there are only six more Mets games left before the start of winter.
It got worse before it got better; Josh Stinson and Daniel Ray Herrera combined to put the Mets in a 6-1 hole. I kept watching anyway, because you never know what might happen.
