First PLACE! How Do You Spell Oliver Perez? K-K-K-K-K-K-K-K-K-K-K-K

The following prognostications, taken singly, would have put anyone in the loony bin had they been evoked in May:
  • The Mets are in first place
  • Oliver Perez will be consistent
  • Carlos Delgado will hit - AND be the catalyst to the Mets getting in first place

OK all ye (me included) Oracle consultors, all three are true. We are not in the loony bin, but in first place. It took an afternoon delight and a win over the Phils to get there.

But, Hey, I'm happy. A good sign is that Delgado, whom I put on a train to New Orleans -- or anywhere for that matter -- early this season, is now hitting and in clutch situations. Let's just hope the early mishaps were seasonal slumps.

Now we are in first. As the John Bon Jovi lyrics state in Livin on a Prayer:

Ohhhh We're Half-Way There....(Everybody sing)
