Just posted a new poll onÃ‚Â how far you think the Mets will go this year. Tell me why here, they go and vote. Thanks.
Figure the AS break is as good a time as any to inquire about some of the potential keys to the second halfÃ¢â‚¬â€everyone says we need another late-inning arm. Any word on what Duaner Sanchez and Juan Padilla are upto? Each were said to be out for 3-4 months in March, which would put them at the stage of thinking about starting a rehab assignment. Are they even close? At extended ST? still with the team? Alive? WILL WE EVER HEAR FROM THESE TWO AGAIN?
Any word on when Jorge Sosa may return?
Here’s how far the Mets go this year:
Improbable Mets complete sweep of Yanks
How does a team justify playing under “500” ball in the second half to finish up at 88-74, then win the NL East crown, and then go on the win 11 of 13 games in the post season? Not without a little help from the floundering Phils and Braves, who both finished tied for 3rd place, 6 game behind the Mets and 4 games behnd the resurgent Marlins who came up short after their second season in a row of 2nd half prowess.
In the wildest of finishes, these 2007 Mets have resurrected the name “Amazing” from their distant cousins, the 1969 Mets as they have conquered their nemesis in 4 straight to take the World Series trophy against all odds.
After Pedro Martinez’s 2-hit complete game shutout in Game 1, it was all downhill for the Mets as Maine and Perez followed with combined outings in Games 2 and 3 of 5 runs on only 8 hits! In addition, the relief effort really stepped up in these 2 games as they were virtually untouchable. The closest of these games was in Game 4 when El Duque, who was perfect after 4 innings, walked the first 3 batters he faced in the 5th but got out of it allowing 3 runs in the inning but maintained the Mets lead. the Mets never trailed in the entire series. The Mets scored early and often in each of the 4 WS games and Game 4 was no exception as they burst open for 6 runs in the 2nd inning knocking Roger Clemens out of the game amidst deafening cheers at Shea of ‘RO-GER! RO-GER! RO-GER!’ On a related note, Steinbrenner fired Torre and himself. Final: Mets 8, Yanks 4
Game 1: Mets 4, Yanks 0
Game 2: Mets 12, Yanks 3
Game 3: Mets 7, Yanks 2
—What? I can’t dream?
