Turns out their key to the city has been revoked by Mayor Bloomberg after their 2-8 road trip, which has flattened their season.

At least Pedro Martinez became Pedro Martinez again today, and Victor Diaz's insurance home run Looper-proofed this one as the Mets swept up the remains of their shattered season and return home after a 7-2 victory over the Cardinals at Busch Stadium (yes, they scored seven runs, although a good portion of that was against Skip Schumacher and the Memphis Redbirds.) It was their first victory at Busch since 19eighty something.
