'06 is Over
It's hard not to be disappointed about the way it ended but we'd be cheating ourselves if we didn't remember 2006 as a great year for the New York Mets. There were some great moments (walkoff win vs. Yanks, walkoff homers by Beltran vs. Philly in the 16th and against the Cardinals) and there were some bad times (Game 7 chief among them). Jose Reyes emerged as one of the best players anywhere. Carlos Beltran showed he can and will succeed in New York. Endy Chavez provided lots of excitement. I think someday we'll look back on 2006 the way we look back on 1984. This could be the start of something big.
