One Happy “Omen”

I know these things are meaningless coincidences, but the Mets’ only two championships came each within two years of great Tigers championships. The 1969 Mets were a follow up act to the 1968 Tigers and the legendary 1986 Mets were just two years on the trail of the legendary 1984 Tigers. Hopefully this loss is only out of deference to our elders, letting them go win first. We will win soon. Pedro is guaranteeing it if the whole team is healthy. 2007, 2008, 2009—-these years do have nice rings to them.
