The Mets black cloud

John Delcos a The Journal News writes about the Mets and their thoughts on how the they have had alot of bad luck this season:

Pitching coach Rick Peterson said he didn't expect to make any late calls last night.

"Whoever starts will be told (today)," Peterson said around 6 p.m., roughly five hours after Hernandez left Shea Stadium when he felt a twinge in his right calf and was taken to the Hospital for Special Surgery for an MRI.

"It's not great news," Randolph said. "We'll take first things first, regroup, and see where we are."

Whoever gets the ball, the Mets don't seem alarmed and went out of their way to put a brave spin on things.

"It looks like the black cloud that was expected to fall on the Mets has finally shown its face," Glavine said sarcastically.

"You feel for El Duque because he's a big-game pitcher," David Wright said. "You're concerned for him, but after we figure out what exactly is going to happen, and exactly who our starters are going to be, we're going to step up and get the job done.

"We can't feel sorry about ourselves. It's crunch time. We have to dig deep and see what's left."

All teams say the same thing when faced with adversity, but sometimes there's a problem in digging too deep.
