No, I don't mean waiting for help for the Mets - that didn't come at the trade deadline and it might not come anytime soon in the form of injured players coming to the rescue.
This is easier - waiting in the rain for the start of the game. The 7:10 start has been knocked back 45 minutes so far. The weather reports show a window from 9 pm to 11 pm, so if the Mets could start a little early and finish a little later, they figure a game could get in.
Or they could reschedule it for Monday afternoon and let us all go home since it is pouring down very hard here at Citi Field.
On the no-trade deadline, the Mets said that there was no match for any of the big name players that were moved - or not in the case of Roy Halladay. But people with knowledge of their thinking insist that the Mets were never buyers for a big piece, choosing to hold onto their prospects this time.
