Eric, what time did you leave for the OT game? My cousins left Denville on a 9am train in the rain....I thought that was a tad early?

Sounds like you had a great time. I would love to see a METS OT game.

Sis,

Eric was kind enough to provide me with a copy of the 1979 Mets Oldtimers game and festivities at Shea, and I'm sure you'll enjoy that when we have a chance to sit down and watch it together sometime.

Lot's of fun memories.

We actually left at 9:30 and got there before 11 (we've benefited from finding a shortcut that lets us avoid the Deegan and use the parking garage on River Avenue across from the new stadium). The first deluge came up at 11:30 and the second at 12:45 after we were let in.

Sounds like you had a great time. I would love to see a METS OT game.

Unfortunately, the Mets and the rest of the teams abandoned the OT day tradition some years back. The Yankees are the only team that still maintains it.

There's one Chad the NY Mets sure could have used.

Chad Bradford.

It looks like it's going to be "bullpen by commitee" for the Mets for the next several weeks at least while closer Billy Wagner nurses his sore wing.



And I'm as enthused about this prospect as Custer was on that hill waiting for some reinforcements.

The Angels are looking pretty much unstoppable right now...



....watch them get Swept by the Mariners and lose 2 of 3 in Tampa.

This is the kind of stuff that makes following baseball so much fun.

Just because you have the highest payroll and the biggest stars, it does not guarantee squat.

The Yankees aren't in good shape right now and must play for the wildcard if they're going to keep their postseason string intact. They have to hope some of these injured players get back for the final month and that the offense can start delivering on a consistent level, which has been their biggest problem next to the injuries.

This Saturday will be my last visit to the old ballpark and I hope it will be a nice one to go out on.

I've been impressed with young Daniel Murphy of the Mets thus far since his call up.

Murphy shows great promise with the bat, but he's going around for the first time in the big leagues and hopefully, major league pitching will not eventually catch up to him.

The Mets need more production in their lineup, and so far Murphy has been a breath of fresh air recently.

The Mets are holding on to first place in the NL east.
It's not a comfortable lead, but it's a lead.

They are doing what they need to do right now which is beating up on the second division teams like the Nationals and Pirates.

The Marlins are stumbling around a bit lately, but I'm not ready to call them out just yet.
The Phillies are going to be right in this thing until the bitter end, so it's going to be an interesting week up ahead watching this race.

Well Saturday was the end of an era for me as I saw my last game at Yankee Stadium. It was not a good game to sit through with the Yankees blowing chance after chance after chance, but finally they prevailed on a Brett Gardner single in the Bottom of the 13th and at least allowed me to leave for the last time with a smile.

But while it was a win, this was a game that left me convinced that this team is not championship caliber. Not when its offense can't dial it up in critical situations.

As I've said before, in baseball anything is possible.

After all,

The St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series Championship in 2006.

METS play a super 8th-inning last night and win 7-3.

YIPPEEEEEE

Pirates win!

While rummaging around youtube I found this clip of the day's (October 17, 1979) events, and the overwhelming nostalgia of the whole presentation just made me have to post it somewhere.

I actually miss the 70s!

I may be going for a final game at the old stadium next week (Blue Jays). Not sure if it will be definite yet, but it may be a couple of rows behind the Yankee on-deck circle. I hope it works out that way, as I want to bring my Nikon with the 300 mm lens along.

Carl Pavano will start for the Yankees on Saturday.

Yes folks, Carl Pavano. eek

Hey,
If Sidney Ponson can still be pitching in the Yankees rotation, why not?

Makes perfect sense, right?

Good Luck .



I have to thank the Nationals for coming back in the game and beating the Phillies tonight.

The Mets lead is now 2 and 1/2 games in the NL east with tonight's victory at Shea against the hapless Atlanta Braves.
Pardon me for not having kinder words for the Braves, they bloodied the Mets in the division for a long time and had their fun, and now they are getting their due after all these years.

What a difference a day makes eh, Anthony?

The Mets beat the Phillies tonight and are back in first place by "1/2".

Carlos Delgado is hitting, and when he hits the way he's capable of instead of playing embalmed the way he did most of the first half of this season, the Mets win.

This NL east race with the Phillies will go down to the wire as I've said.
It's going to be a battle for control of the division to the end.

Will the Mets go very far if they even make the playoffs?

Time will tell.

I am throwing in the towel on this season. The Yankees should just look ahead to next year and chart how they can make use of their payroll savings as we bid adieu to Giambi and others.

I hope Tampa Bay wins the division and that Boston goes down to Anaheim in the first round.

Sorry about the Yankees, Eric. I feel your frustration, believe me!

As for the METS, I am taking it day by day and game by game. I don't watch much anymore, because it is too nerve-wracking. Each morning I ask Ed, "how did they do"? If he doesn't say much, I usually hear from my sister from South Jersey -- the Phillies fan.wink
