Quick, someone find me a Yankees fan. I have forgotten what meaningful late-season baseball feels like. The last time the Mets were in the race this late in the season was 2008.

Maybe we should have named him Ernie. After all, Ernie Davis is dead and therefore unlikely to disgrace himself. Ernie and my dog share a hometown, providing a natural connection.

Jerry Seinfeld named his dog Jose only to have Jose Reyes sign with another team. A trade, another injury, or poor performance could have made my choice unfortunate. I didn’t expect this.
