The M&M Mets: Rumble in the Bronx

The Mets continue to be very, very good to me this year. I've been able to watch only one inning in the past week and it was the 4th inning of yesterday's 8-3 romp. What a treat. Woodward patiently working out that walk. Castro aggresively going after the first pitch to knock in two runs. Fox announcers Joe Buck and Tim McCarver wondering aloud how the Yankees are going to put up with another year and a half of Randy Johnson's ineffectiveness.

The Mets also overcame little things that typically trip them up. Like when Xavier Nady was hit by a pitch--which would have loaded the bases with no outs--and umpire Gerry Davis missed the call. Or the fact that Trachsel allowed 11 baserunners in six innings of work.

Alay Soler vs. Jaret Wright tonight. Let's see if either survives through five innings.
