One Hit Wonders

That was the greatest pitched game by five pitchers in Mets history.

A one hitter? This bullpen? Picking up for Pedro Martinez after his shoulder got stiff? This is the same Pedro Martinez that would have been 23-2 in 2005 had it not been for Braden Looper ... and he's getting bullpen help?

Meanwhile, the Mets have won eight straight, and could actually hit the break in first place. What alternate universe did I step into, exactly?

Welcome to Bizzaro Shea where Mets remember how to get clutch two-out hits and their pitchers forget how to give up ANY hits. Either that or we're in Oz or through the looking glass.

In the immortal words of Jerry Seinfeld (prominent Mets fan)..."not that there's anything wrong with that."

Sweet, isn't it?

If the Phillies lose today the Mets will go into tonight's last-game-before-the-break with 1st place on the line.

Who'd have thought?

I don't get people claiming that the Mets aren't beating anybody. I know the Giants have a power shortage but they were 22-22 on the road before they came to Shea. And the Rockies are a decent offensive team. And the Mets pitchers are BLOWING THEM AWAY. Give them the credit they deserve.

The Mets are also the first team in major league history to go five straight games in which they give up three hits or less. That's impressive no matter who you play.

I hope this is not all part of some cruel psychological experiment to see just how much pain and suffering we Mets fans can take.

Because I was resigned to a mediocre season, but if we go bad again now, it'll feel much worse.
