Elation -!

Spent the afternoon at CitiField and it was nice to see Santana hold down the Rockies. Wish it was more than 7 scoreless innings, but he did a stellar job only offering one free pass.

This was the first game I went to since the avalanche started awhile back. One thing I did notice was the absence of cheering "LETS GO METS" LETS GO me, this was a staple, much like the pickle when you order a pastrami sandwich at a Jewish deli...MANDATORY!

My view of 5 straight and then a double header split is still on the upward curve. You see, each of the recent teams they beat all went through some good winning streaks as of late. It is definitely and conundrum when the Metropolitans blow easy games to the Nationals, but belt the hell out of good teams.

On a closer, my good friend and sage, who has done a post here and there had some good wisdom he posted on my Facebook wall:

  • Jerry Manuel has done an outstanding job holding the team together. Luis Castillo leads the NL in hitting this month batting .400. Jeff Francoeur is a breath of fresh air, positive vibes and timely RBI.Reyes and Beltran will make it an August for the ages exactly 40 years after the Mets came from 9 back to catch and pass the Chicago Cubs.You heard it here first.
