Mets' Extend Streak to Eight

Game 93: Mets 2 - Rockies 1 (Friday)
Game 94: Mets 3 - Rockies 0 (Saturday)

Even when the Mets face a couple of tough pitchers and only manage 5 runs in two games they still win both of them. After a year of the constant negativity and finding ways to lose, this is a welcome development.

I went to the Saturday game with Lisa. It was my second game of the week after my blogger's outing Wednesday night, and the positive energy permeating Shea Stadium I noted on that outing was present in spades Saturday afternoon, even when Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez looked unhittable in the first three innings.

Unfortunately for your intrepid blogger, his 12-year-old Toyota elected to betray him in the Fairfield, CT train station parking lot upon his return from an afternoon at the game and evening in New York. By the time the tow truck showed up and got Lisa, I, and the old heap home it was 4 am. This is my excuse for a brief post today.

Whatever happens in tonight's game, it appears the Mets are a legitimate contender in the second half despite their first-half struggles. I'd love to see them heading into the break on a 9-game streak, though.

Let's go Mets!

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

Betrayed by a Toyota, eh? Oh the perfidity; first there was Pearl Harbor, and now this!

I am getting a special kick out of the Mets' winning ways; this game looks like the baseball we had when I was a kid, with tight pitching, good plays in the field, baseball-sounding score totals. Long may it last.

Interesting connection you got there, bud bud bud.

It was worth hearing 3 times.

Amen on this thing lasting for more than a few games.
