Carlos Beltran just made one of the greatest catches I’ve ever seen. Three or four guys around me said “Wow”Ã‚Â when Beltran went about four steps up that slope in center to get Luke Scott’s drive and keep the Mets in the game.
It doesn’t get any better than that.
The Mets have always played marathon games. The July 4 game with the Braves. Twenty-five innings against the Cardinals. The extra-innings game here in the playoffs in ’86.
There’s a tenseness about extra innings I like because you never know when, or how, it’s going to end.
