    You know that I am. The Cards are going to tear through the Mets like Yogi Bear tears through Picanic Baskets.

    they always say baseball is a marathon not a sprint - and you can't get up or down on just 1 game - but last night's game proved how good the Mets team is this year... they can play with and beat anyone.

    I agree 110% Bit...I've been a little skeptical about who the mets have played this year despite them being 10 games over .500, and i do realize that it was only 1 game against the cards. But,it was nice to see what can happen when everything clicks with the Mets especially against an "elite" team.

    Great starting pitching from Glavine
    Great middle relief (even Julio)
    Timely Hitting (something thats been lacking this year)

    You need all of these things to beat the best. Now hopefully they can finish what they started and take this series against the Cards, and go into the weekend series w/ the Yanks w/ a head of steam. It'll be nice to have Pedro and Glavine going against them (i like the Mets chances).

    Crowning the Mets World Series Champs already? Prince Albert doesn't go 0-4 much, look for retribution tonight.

    Now if they can do it one more time in St. Louis I'll start to believe. Maybe tonight with Trachel.

    Now that was a tough loss, get a 3 hit gem from Trachsel, and they couldn't get the big hit. Gotta tip your hat to Mulder though, he pitched one hell of a game!

    Wrights GOTTA lift a ball to the outfield in that situation, even a shallow pop up would get reyes in there.

    On to LIMA TIME!!!

    OMIGOD, Lima - Pray for the mother of all thunderstorms in St. Louis today. Pujols, Rolen, and Edmonds must be drooling.
