How bad did Jerry Manuel want last night’s clash with the Phillies? Bad enough to spend his closer’s remaining bullets, Frankie Rodriquez, in a tie game for two innings, no less. Who says games in June don’t have the intensity of September affairs? Unfortunately, the Mets could not counter the Phighting Phillies number one asset-guile. […]

Let’s face it: you really don’t want to go mano-a-mano w/ the Phils in extras given the power hitting match ups. Seemed like we just might win it in the tenth. Alas.
