According to Jason at Faith and Fear:

]Based on Ultimate Mets Database plus my calculations, tonight is the 7,000th game that counts in the history of the New York Mets. 6,934 games, which includes eight ties, through July 26; 11 games since then for 6,945; 54 postseason games (in which we're 37-27) for 6,999.

I wonder. Has Mom ever run a 7K?

Super cool, it will be interesting to see if the TV or Radio crew knows this information.

We started this season 370 games below .500.

On one level that seems about right and what the team deserves. On another, the idea that we need a decade averaging 37 games above .500 is a little tough for me to confront.

Then think of it as only needing to win every game for 2.3 seasons, if that makes it any easier for you.

We could start this year by finishing the season with a .666 winning percentage.

Where's that Payton picture?

You know we'd only blow it by losing every game for the next 1.7 seasons and dropping back again.

I've run 10K. Twice.

Which is nothing compared to metsmarathon, but for me it's a long run.

]I've run 10K. Twice.


so that's, what... 20K, right? sounds expensive.

Deal me out. I'll be the one sitting on the couch washing down his donuts with beer, and cheering you on. You go, girl!

10K out and 10K back?

My new goal in life is to survive until the Mets reach .500 all time.

It's my old goal. I should make a website about it.

in the movie THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY, the badly wounded civil war captain is hanging on just so he can hear the sound of Blondie and Tuco blowing up the bridge that his army had been fighting and dying for. When he hears it, he smiles and dies.

that could be us one day.

But i think the idea of staying alive till they make it till .500 could actually make us immortal.

Actually, I just looked into this...

Game 7000 was a little over a week ago. The Mets have played 64 post-season games, not 54.

8 in 1969.
12 in 1973.
13 in 1986.
7 in 1988.
10 in 1999.
14 in 2000.

When we started Faith and Fear, Jason understood there was to be no math. Can't say he didn't warn us.
