What seemed improbable only 24 hours ago has become a reality for the New York Mets. Not only do they win in impressive style on the strength of a masterful pitching performance by John Maine, but with both the Phillies and the Padres both losing this evening, the Mets are back in the game!
They once again are in control of their own destiny, and with a win tomorrow it ensures at the very least a one game playoff with the Philadelphia Phillies. However, should the Phillies lose, the Mets will clinch the division.
Like I wrote this morning…
We’ve seen how good the Phillies can be when they were chasing first place, now let’s see how good they are at staying in first place.
THEY LOOKED TENSE AND THE CROWD WAS MOSTLY QUIET UNTIL THE ROWAND AND HOWARD HOMERUNS.
I also wrote this…
I wonder what they will call the 2007 Mets after we comeback and win the division… The Unbelievable Mets? The I Can’t Believe What I Just Saw Mets? The They Came Back And Did What Mets?
Miracles do happen, and they happen quite often for the Orange and Blue!
Tomorrow the Mets will pin their hopes on the crafty left-hander, Tom Glavine, who has been in these big games so many times in his career. Expect another dominating pitching peformance.
Ya Gotta Believe!
