Good afternoon, Mets fans. Today marks the official end of the 2008 regular season, although we might all be wishing for an extra game tomorrow, or not. Since those bas-, uh, Philadelphia boys are sitting pretty and are able to call the NL East crown their very own, the Mets and Brewers are tied for the Wild Card with one game to play. If they both win or both lose, there will be a one-game playoff on Monday at Shea. If the Mets win and the Brewers lose, the Mets are in. Vice-freakin-versa. After Friday night's horrendous loss, Johan came in on short rest and pitched. The. Most. Amazing. Game. Ever. At least the best one I've ever seen. I was practically calm through the game even though a loss could have meant elimination. Santana was the epitomy of cool, calm and collected as he dominated the Marlins line-up.
So here we go. Its raining at Shea, but that's not stopping all of the former players from walking to the field on a red carpet with the fans along the side!!
Let's go Mets.
