How about the Mets over the weekend? Going into the series against Texas, you had to figure the only way to win was to keep the scores low and out-pitch the Rangers. Well, the Mets went down there and OUT HIT the Rangers. Yes, Texas slugged 7 HRs to none for the Mets, but the Mets pounded out 39 hits in 3 games, stole bases, and played great D. The pitching was decent, not great.
Now, the schedule remains rough. Three with Detroit and three with the NYY, before a west coast swing. BTW, speaking of the NYY, what an organization of douche bags. At Old Timers' Day, they refer to Gooden, Strawberry, and Mazzilli as "our own". Yeah, right. Why is that organization obsessed with needling the Mets at every opportunity? The clowns in the booth do it, too. Screw them, I'm enjoying being .500.
