OK, we’re at the same point as last year when it all went wrong for the Mets, 17 games to go. Last year, the lead was seven. This year, the lead is there. Which way do you think the Mets are headed from here? Are they going to pull this out? Is this a different team from last year? Post up and let us know.
That’s the subject of my main story today in The Journal News and on LoHud.com. The Mets, specifically David Wright, think they’re better equipped to handle things this year, that they are the better for going through last year’s collapse. There’s also a comparison of the schedules for the Mets and the Phillies the rest of the way. There’s also a story for those interested in buying Shea memorabilia and the number to call to get in the mix for a special look at the items. And Sam Borden has a column on Carlos Delgado’s surge in the MVP race.
Back with more from Shea later this afternoon.
