Adjusted Schedule Today

The Mets play an afternoon game today, pushing Mike and the Dog to the 4:30-7PM time slot.  This can be good and bad for a few reasons.  It can be good if the Mets lose, because then you get the instant satisfaction of Mets panic discussion ("Willie's in trouble", "The Mets are an enigma").  That is like instant relief if you are a Mets fan.

However, the bad is if the Mets win.  Then all of a sudden, Wednesday night's Aaron Heilman meltdown has some of the sting taken out of it.  If Pelfrey pitches a gem, then some of the attention shifts to that.  And all of a sudden, we are getting less "Fire Willie, Trade Beltran, Trade Reyes" talk.

So if you are a true Mets fan and you know that you have Francesa and Russo after the game today, there is only one outcome you can possibly want.  What do you think that is?
