The Phillies and the Braves begin a three game series tonight in Atlanta, with the Phillies only a 1/2 game behind the Mets with two weeks to go.
Seriously, go Braves!
It'd be great to see Atlanta take two of three here, and maybe the Mets can figure out how to beat the Nationals in September, which seems to be the toughest thing to do for this franchise of late.
The Mets can't worry about anyone else but themselves. If they win, then everything else doesn't matter. So Mets, just win, and don't scoreboard watch. Learn to tack on runs to a lead, hit in clutch situations, and above all else, if someone who enjoys striking out opposing batters would please raise their hand, that would be really helpful.
I need a shower now. I feel dirty.
