With the Mets one game away from elimination, manager Willie Randolph was asked what he would say to his team before tonight’s game.
“We’ll go over our travel plans,” Randolph said, which is a sign of confidence.
The Mets are saying all the right things, as you would hope they would. Of course, real confidence would be stringing a bunch of hits together.
Cards have outscored the Mets, 23-22, through five games, which makes this series as tight as you can get. David Wright hasn’t hit. Jose Reyes isn’t getting on base with any regularity. Yes, they miss Cliff Floyd. Paul Lo Duca is struggling. Fingers can be pointed in a lot of directions.
