Que se dillio:

If you believe in the power of momentum in this sport then the Mets find themselves in quite a pickle. They have lost four straight games overall including the first three in this series and they go at it again with the Phillies today at 1pm. In a way I think it's good for them to get back out there this afternoon to give it another go instead of having to stew over last night's loss for a full 24 (or 21 ) hours. El Duque looks to straighten things out for this wayward ship, but no pitcher is an island: if the Mets can't figure out how to score some runs then the ship's status will rapidly shift from staggering to flag out hull breach.
