OK, Moises Alou had a setback. Is setback even the right word anymore? I’m looking at Alou the same way I do Pedro Martinez, which is, I’ll believe it when I see it.
What the Mets did tonight was put the hammer down on a team they should beat. Championship teams bully the bottom feeders. That’s what they did last year and that’s what they have to do now.
Atlanta and Philadelphia don’t look like they will go away. The Mets have shown a habit this year of encoring a good moment with a step back. I figure they should win five of seven on this homestand. Anything less would be a disappointment.
