Greetings from LAX … an hour before boarding. Was able to change my ticket with a minimal amount of hassle, which is an upset these days.
The Mets are also traveling today. “Watch some football and relax,” Paul Lo Duca said about his plans today after landing. They deserve the rest.
The Mets disposed of LA with pitching, their bullpen and timely hitting. If you look at the Mets through these first three games, does any one of their offensive players stand out? Nope, and that’s a good thing. They’ve been getting it from top to bottom, and that’s how it’s won.
David Wright had an interesting comment about the Yankees getting bounced: “It’s a shame the Yankees went down, but we’re not going to concern ourselves with the Yankees.”
And they shouldn’t. October’s stage is theirs alone. They are the toast of the town.
