I have a feeling the Cards are going to the series....let's hope the Mets have something to say about that tonight and keep this thing alive.

Go Mets.
The opening graphics made the Mets' '86 series apperence look as if it happened in the 1940s. Making me feel old.

Meanwhile, I am finding it interesting that they are make it a huge deal that this is the first time the Mets have a chance at the championship in 20 years. The last time the Cards won a championship? Four years before that.
Being in New York does buy one more media.

Lead off homer for Reyes. 1-0 Mets.

For me it's dying that patch of hair on his chin red.

Not only that, but the St. Louis obsession with said patch.

This should be the Mets Home uniform. Period.

Ditch the black.

Do they not teach you how to count in manager school?

That Reyes homer was a nice shot. I thought I felt the energy changing, and maybe the tide.

:beerme:

Also, Matt, in my head Spezio was the one who ended the Reds' season. Not our pitching, not our offense, but Spezio. Punk.

Teams should wear white at home. But that's another thread.

Jim Edmonds making an out is a good thing...

Can I ask a stupid question?

There is an NY logo painted on the back of the mound; I noticed the same thing in Detroit (except, you know, with a D). Is that always there or is it just for the playoffs? Has it been there for the other teams too?

My cousin and I are drinking beer and sketching our dream Mets uniforms (we're a banging good time, let me tell you, kids). They're officially the Mets, right? ie. it would be inappropriate to put "Metropolitans" on their uniforms?

Also, Jose Reyes has got to be one of my favorite players in the game right now.

Also, Ronnie Belliard is so so fat.

They are the Metropolitans, but I don't think they ever go by that.

Sketching dream Mets uniforms? lol......drinking does funny things :)

Yes, Ronnie Belliard is fat.

Thanks Matt. The New York press calls them that sometimes, but I didn't know whether it was an official name or just a historical nod.

Ok, I realize that Stupid Question #1 is as yet unanswered, but that will not deter me from asking stupid question #3: What happened to Kaz Matsui, anyway?

Matsui I believe ended the year with Colorado.

The 'D' has been there for awhile, at least all of this year and (I'm pretty sure) '05. The Tigers are moving back to the Olde English 'D' as the primary logo (from the Tiger coming through the 'D' they've had the past 10+ years).

Oh, I should have made myself clearer...it's on the back of the PITCHER'S mound. As it is tonight at Shea. I've never noticed a logo on the pitcher's mound before, but I can be dense. So I wondered whether this was a playoff thing, or a park thing that I've missed, or what. It's pretty small.

This is a pretty dang good game, by the way. I have a feeling about this series but I don't want to jinx anything by voicing anything. But I will say that I really, really like this Mets team. All year -- the last couple years, really -- I thought they were a little overrated and that they benefitted from the league in which they play, but I don't anymore. They are a really solid, delightful baseball team.

Wagner comes in and immediately gives up a single and double to start the 9th.

Joe Buck saying that the Cards won't win this game against Wagner almost make me want them to come back and win. Almost.

1 more out, Wagner...1 more
