Did you know that Mr. Met has an entourage of Pepsi and Mets "fun" crew around him at all times? I shit you not, some fan started yelling, "Hey everyone, Mr. Met is coming down!" And all the kids around us starting going nuts...till one of the Pepsi crew said, "Please don't do that, Mr. Met needs to get somewhere."
Well, any other day, I might have let the Pepsi beyotch have it. But I was happy. First, I got to attend the game with one of my favorite Mets fans ever, and I am proud to announce that we have a 1.000 record on the season for live games at Shea!! And ironically, Oh Pea has started both those games. Oh Pea got the win the last time around...this time, unfortunately, no.
But it's OK. I will take a No-Pea Decision any day for a Mets win in the end. And win they did, although it seemed to take a while before they decided to click on all cylinders. Mr. Contribution himself (Thanks Toasty!) Moises Alou contributed big time, by getting two of the Mets 10 hits and four RBIs of the Mets 10 runs scored this game. Wheee!
Heck, even Metsgrrl agreed we might have to change our little nickname for Moises now. (And considering everyone in the midwest thinks all NYers heckle their own players because of us...this is a huge undertaking!).
In other news...Paul LoDuca has hit the DL and Mike "Dr. Evil" DiFelice is called up. Now it looks like Ramon "Pumpkin Head" Castro (if you can give me the Spanish translation for Pumpkin head, I will buy you a cerveza at the next game we both attend) might be out too. Although it sounds like nothing a little advil (or Massengill, like in Beltran's case) can't cure.
Otherwise -- we just wait. Wait and see. Wait and see how the Phils and Braves match up ends this weekend. And maybe, just maybe, win a series against two last place teams in the Pirates and the Nats this week.
