Cardinals 4 - Mets 2
Cardinals Lead NLCS 3-2
Sorry guys, I've tried three times to write something in-depth on tonight's game, and I keep coming up empty. This was a game where Glavine was obviously not sharp from the get-go, leaving everything up, and yet the game was there to be won all night. The Mets bullpen was great and the Cardinals blew some chances themselves. But Jeff Weaver got away with mistakes all night, and was bailed out by some terrible at bats by your New York Mets. Home plate umpire Jeff Kellogg had a terribly inconsistent strike zone all night, but he had a better game than most of the Mets hitters, so resist the urge to blame him, please. In a very important game, the Mets reverted to their September offensive approach, with predictable results.
And now we are facing two elimination games to keep playing baseball a little longer. That wouldn't be so hard to take if the Mets gave a good accounting of themselves tonight, but they didn't. I hope all of you that our going to the game tomorrow night will give your all to try to support our team. They need all the help they can get. Greg and Jason from Faith and Fear, Mets Grrl and anyone else who may be going, we're all counting on you to bring your "A" game to Shea tomorrow night.
