It's just one lost that killed a seven game winning streak.
Win on Sunday and the series is yours.
All of us, including the Mets, need to remember this is a two month marathon and we're not in control of what Washington does except for the games we play them.
Things will go back and forth but, right now, we have the 1 1/2 game lead and winning will prevent that being taken away from us.
Michael Cuddyer went 0-4 in his St. Lucie rehab last night, but will still return to the Mets and join the team, probably tomorrow.
Curtis Granderson took a ball off his right foot in the 9th innings last night and there is a chance he could sit out the final today against Tampa Bay. The decision will be made in the morning when he arrives at the park.
Since trading deadline with other teams:
Most of the people that surround my life these days know that I write ‘something’ about the Mets. Some aren’t sure who I work for and if I am employed by the team while others are still trying to figure out where all the old newspapers went and what the hell blogs are.
