Sigh, the Mets cleaned out their lockers at Shea yesterday. We imagine that the hurt has just set in for Mets fans after last night's disappointing end to the season. (Our head is still spinning. ) Everyone is talking about the lack of offensive power, and it's so true. But since there will be many recriminations, let's savor Endy Chavez's beautiful catch for now with this clip.

Omar Minaya is looking ahead to next year, but who knows what the team will look like - Tom Glavine will decide whether to end his career as a Met or a Brave and Carlos Delgado needs to be re-signed. Fan favorite David Wright did say he wants the Mets to be in the playoffs every year, while wearing a "Virginia is for Lovers" shirt.
