Looooooooooooooose ….. the Mets sure appear that way.
We’re two hours before gametime and there’s some things going on ……..
* Willie Randolph said if the Mets advance the Game 1 starter could be somebody not on their current playoff roster, either Dave Williams or Orlando Hernandez. The latter was running hard to first in fielding drills. I’d guess him because he’s got the nerve to pitch in a big game. Steve Trachsel has fallen off the radar and he might not even be on the World Series roster.
* Randolph said the key for Perez tonight is to survive his first jam as that would enable him to get settled down and find a rhythm.
* Stat to note: The last 11 teams to win a Game 6 to force the deciding game all went on to win.
