Should I Feel Bad?

I am a diehard Phillies fan, so naturally I hate the New York Mets. Seeing them crash and burn down the stretch drive the past two seasons was extremely gratifying. However, this season the Mets will be limping to the finish line with a team so crippled it's almost not funny any more...but is it?

They just lost Johan Santana for the remainder of the season due to elbow surgery. A couple weeks ago David Wright took a gruesome beaning to the noggin and is likely out for the season. Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran, Johnathan Niese, John Maine, JJ Putz, and Carlos Delgado were supposed to be cogs in the machine that would lead the Mets back to the playoffs this season, but they've all spent considerable time on the disabled list instead. I'm not going to lie, the suffering that all these injuries have caused for Mets fans is enjoyable. Should I feel bad for taking pleasure in the midst of misery for others?

We shall never feel bad for the Mets or their fans.

I don't and won't feel bad for finding pleasure through their pain.

As a Mets fan, I will tell you it has been a very tough year. It seems like one thing after another and you never know what is going to happen next. I was looking forward to watching the Mets compete with the Phillies for a division title and, even after all of the injuries I think they would have competed very well with their number one players playing everyday.

This is a prime example of why you play the games on the field and not on paper. You never know what is going to happen. What happened to Reyes, Beltran, Delgado, Wright, JJ Putz, and Santana not to mention others, could of very well happened to Utley, Rollins, Howard, Victorino, and Hammels.

I was taught at a very young age that you should always play each game as if it were your last, never take anything for granted. This Mets season shows you that there isnt always a tomorrow.

Add Oliver Perez to the list of DL'd Mets. He's out for the season with knee surgery.

the mets are a lost cause-just hope that their season ends swiftly and painlessly

Francisco Rodriguez and Luis Castillo are the only regulars I believe that haven't spent time on the DL this season. Maybe Mike Pelfrey too.
