Parallelism to a Point

Pedro Martinez looked ragged. Brandon Backe looked ragged.

The Mets had a promising inning immediately snuffed by a somewhat unlikely double play. The Astros had a promising inning immediately snuffed by a somewhat unlikely double play.

The Mets loaded the bases with nobody out. It looked like they might get nothing from such endeavors, but then with two out Carlos Delgado smashed a ball to left … and into Carlos Lee's glove. The Astros loaded the bases with nobody out. It looked like they might get nothing from such endeavors, but then with one out Mark Loretta hit a grand slam.

I liked it better when the parallel was holding.

The Marlins and Phillies lost, so we didn't lose any ground — but neither did we make any up [1]. Is this a dip? A blip? A rut? A slide? You never know till later, when Good King Hindsight has ruled and the dots have been connected. Let's hope they're continuing to head up the mountain, rather than back into the valley.
