Mets used to this by now

Tom Singer at MLB.com writes about the Mets and their ability to adjust the pitching on the fly:

"Things happen sometimes and, you know, it's easy to feel sorry for yourself," said the Mets' manager, who then invoked his favorite vocal shrug. "It is what it is."

But this time, it's more than that. It's a numbing turn of events -- or of a right leg.
It's not a square deal, but a raw deal, squared. It's more than just being plain snakebit. The Mets have become the rat in the snake pit of postseason baseball.

Actually, a day before the Mets were to place their 2006 destiny on the line against the Dodgers, Randolph did know the whereabouts of his rotation. He just didn't know what to make of it.
