I’m not hearing it in the clubhouse, but I am hearing here and on the radio. The Mets will sweep the Dodgers. Funny, that’s what they were saying about the Yankees, too.
Very exciting game yesterday … but step back and consider the play at the plate. That’s two runs the Dodgers could have had. Also, the game ended with the tying run in scoring position. The Mets played well, but nothing has been won yet.
Yeah, yeah … I’m being the ants at your picnic, but in the playoffs nothing is for certain. Remember the Yankees were supposed to roll over Detroit. Remember how the Twins couldn’t be beaten at home.
All year the Mets played to the moment and did not look ahead. It was a team strength. They were focused on the game at hand and that has to be the case now.
Let them get a strong game from Tom Glavine tonight, then worry about the weekend in LA.
