If you're looking for a symbol of the Mets' struggles, there's no shortage of choices. One that's been on my mind lately is Roberto Alomar's batting average. As Alomar heated up over the past few weeks, I kept telling myself that I wouldn't get my hopes up for a return of the old Alomar until he got to .300 - a symbolic target, yes, but not so long ago, .300 in late April was no accomplishment for Alomar. His average went as high as .296 on April 24, but then the bottom dropped out: 0 for 13 in the 3-game set with Arizona. At the start of today's action, he's hitting .255.

I'm still waiting.
