Third Time's Not A Charm

Things were going well for the Metropolitans tonight. Superstar Johan Santana pitched 7 fabulous innings, with zero earned runs -- and left the game with the Mets up over the Diamondbacks 4-0. Scott "Best Name Ever" Schoeneweis even managed to score a hold after some trouble with Joe Smith in the 8th left the score 4-2.

And then came Billy Wagner.

For the third consecutive time in as many tries, Wagner notched yet another blown save... and the Mets lost to the D'backs 5-4 (in 10 innings). Bad things come in threes, I suppose. When reached for comment, the ever-eloquent Wagner said:

”I suck right now.”
Indeed, good sir. Indeed you do.
