That was close. Jeez, Wright, you're killing me with the errors; it's gonna be tough to win MVP if you keep that up. But thank God for all the nuts and bolts on this ball club. Castro, Franco, Chavez, Woodward–even Valentin a little, they rock. Even without Marlon Anderson our bench is looking good lately. And how about that slugger Brian Bannister? I hope with all my being that he is okay. But at least we won. And everbody contributed. Oh, look, Big Mike just hit No. 400. Good for him. Too bad it wasn't enough for a win.
There is now way in HELL I thought the Mets would win that game yesterday, especially after leaving the bases loaded in the 10th.
This game reminded me of the playoff game when Benitez choked that hit to JT Snow.
