Seemed eerily like how the rest of this season's going to go, didn't it? A long, slow limp to the finish line, with a couple of moments where you think you're going to collapse in a heap of body parts, as Sheffield almost did at least once.
If you didn't see it, find a replay and see for yourself. Sheffield eschewed the cart so that he can walk off the field under his own power, except that it took the better part of an hour. If that's how the Mets season is going to go for you, you might want to just take the cart ... and go to the beach.
And remember, surgery's on Thursday.
"Let's go out and beat the Mets ... just like old times." -Greg Maddux before the game, and after his number 31 was retiredOh, excuse me Greg ... I didn't know that 2008 counted as "the old days". Hell, Maddux could have put on a uniform and did it himself. Two hits, 11-0 ... wow.
