Shutting the Phils out three straight times was remarkable. I understand the Mets also did that in 1969. Now we're going on the road, including a quick coast trip for the Padres.
A sportscaster asked the Mets' manager, "Don't you think everything is coming together right now?"
He answered: "We got good pitching." I agree.
The Mets' new knuckleballer (when have they ever had a knuckleballer?) presents an unusual enigma, even for the Mets: if he's really any good, why was he in the minors? On the other hand, 35 isn't old for a knuckleballer; he could have ten good years.
