That's What I'm Talking About

Tonight the Mets rung in Shea's 44th birthday with a victory over the Nationals in the 14th inning. The Nats showed no respect for Brian Schneider, intentionally walking two batters before him. Don't you know the B-Schneid will make you pay? He will... stand there while you throw a wild pitch to give up the winning run. The Mets pitching staff really earned this one tonight, first with 7 great innings from Fig Nelson and then 7 more from all the relievers but Show. Who says we don't have a good bullpen? They looked unbelievable tonight. Also helping secure the win: cats and rally caps. For whatever reason cats seem to be on the Mets side. First one ran across the field into the Mets dugout, and then in the 13th a black cat came my back step and sat and stared at me for the rest of the game. And when our boy Ollie came out to celebrate he had his cap turned inside out. Good work, OP. Things are looking good, let's keep the luck coming and beat up on the Phillies all weekend.

It was more of walking the two spots to force Willie's hand - see if he would bat Sosa because he only had Scotty Show left in the pen or pinch hit B-Schneid who was the last position player on the bench with a catcher in the game that had played once all season and already caught 14 innings.

A sweep is a sweep though right?
