The team. The time. The playoffs. The contest.
Let's go Mets!
The Mets lost one game last night, but it feels more like three. I don't know if it's because the game itself was such a heartbreaker or because Operation: Crapshoot begins tonight in St. Louis as the Mets sent Steve Trachsel to the mound and it continues tomorrow when Oliver Perez makes his postseason debut. In Suppan and Reyes the Cardinals aren't exactly rolling out Koufax and Drysdale, and that's what makes these next two games a complete mystery.
Much of the Mets' bullpen was suspect last night and they're probably going to be counted on for at least six innings over the next two nights. The good news is that we're just about out of time to stew over the loss in Game 2 because it's time to go out there and play Game 3.
