Uhh, well, first place was nice while it lasted. There wasn't a whole hell of a lot to like about this game. John Maine stunk. The offense aside from Carlos Beltran was MIA. They weren't going to win them all, and I guess a stinker like this counts the same as a heart-wrenching loss, so all things considered I think I'll take this one. The Phillies won their game in Florida so the Mets are right back in second place. I've gotta be up at five-something to catch an early plane to Austin, but I'll check in as time allows. Good luck and godspeed.
