I made the rare trip out to Shea on a Sunday night (thanks to my friend Jocelyn and some free tix courtesy of WFAN) and got to witness a rare sweep by the Flushing boys. The crowd seemed rather subdued for much of the game, which surprised me since it was Pedro bobblehead night. And speaking of subdued, Victor Zambrano topped his twin Carlos Zambrano. Victor rebounded from that 38 homer performance against Milwaukee and pitched an excellent game. One of the signs they showed on the diamond vision summed it up: "Our Zambrano is better than yours."
It's an off day tomorrow to head out West for three against the once again over .500 NL West leading San Diego Padres and then up the I-5 for three against the Los Angeles Dodgers of Brooklyn. If the Mets are to prove my proclamation of their season being over wrong, they need to win 4 out of 6 on this trip.
