That's a real shame to see the Mets f*ck up such a feel good story.
When D'Arnaud is swatting .300 and 20 home runs behind the plate, you remember Gio Gonzalez as the Cy Young winner this year.
Here in this graveyard it's still No Man's Land
The countless white crosses in mute witness stand
To man's blind indifference to his fellow man
And a whole generation who were butchered and damned.
