WOW, what a weekend! Got off to a rocky start on Friday, but the Mets showed up and played hard on Saturday & Sunday. Kudos to David for some stellar defensive plays on Saturday and to Jose for that lovely grand slam Sunday night. I was also very happy to see Milledge making some good outfield plays and get a good hit. Here’s hoping he works out and can help us out when we reach playoff time. Also, how about Maine pitching 6 shutout innings! Just when I was starting to worry about our pitching team…… Any way, it is absolutely amazing to have such a stacked group of hitters on this team. Makes you feel good about October. Congrats to David and Jose for their contract extensions. I know I am a happy gal to know those two will be wearing Mets colors for years to come. Being so young (and already good at what they do) I cannot imagine how they will only get better w/ each passing year. I’m excited! A nice break today and up next is San Diego, as Piazza makes a return to Shea. Looks like game one of the series will put Trachsel (10-5, 5.12) against Williams (4-3, 3.84). The Padres are hot after an extra inning win against the Nationals. This is an important series for the Padres, as they now have a 2 game lead in the NLW. So, I have a feeling they will be coming to play. But I know the Mets will do the same. GO METS and good luck this week.
