Mets 4 - Braves 0

I don't know how many Met fans are still paying attention to the team, but those of us who still are really appreciated last night's game. It's always great on those rare occasions where we beat Atlanta, to see Chipper going down looking in the ninth was icing on the cake. Strikes out looking on a 3-2 count in which he never swung the bat at one pitch. Actually, that seemed to be the strategy of every Brave in the ninth, except Jeff Francouer who walks less than Reyes.

Kudos to Pedro for toughing it out and giving the fans and the team itself a badly needed win. And thanks for keeping Looper out of the game, Pedro. I don't have any hatred for Looper as some do, but I've had enough of watching him close games.

Kudos to Mike Jacobs, also. After cooling off abruptly after that great Arizona series, he has made the adjustment and still looks like a player that can help this team next year. Besides a nice looking swing, he brings that intangible of confidence in himself that is so important.
