second time this season, the Mets find themselves rained out for multiple consecutive days. After getting washed out in Washington on Thursday, the rain decided to just follow the Mets back to New York, soaking the city and postponing Friday's game against the Marlins, too.
This probably isn't a bad thing for the Mets right now. Sure, they came off a really nice performance in Washington on Wednesday, but this is very much the same Marlins team that just last weekend embarrassed the Mets and incited me to demand they be realigned. See, the Mets need some time to get past this Marlin Bugaboo they seem to have right now, so postponing Friday's game to a September 14th Doubleheader is probably a good idea. If the Mets are going to look like asses against the Marlins (and yes, I know Harvey is scheduled to pitch on Saturday, but even he's had his issues with the Marlins), then at least they only have two games to do it in now, and maybe, just maybe, by September, they'll have gotten this thing out of their system.
At least, that's what I hope will happen.
