weather today is actually supposed to be 75 and sunny. cooler tonight and mostly clear so the game should be played.
Last night's game was a real let down. Weaver pitched real well, the Card's bullpen did the job and their hitters did theirs as well. The rain
delay didn't help glavine's old arm and it cooled off the Met's bats. Maine goes tonight and he's going to give you his usual. Lots of walks,
pitching out of trouble most of the game and he will only let the Cards have a few hits. Sadly, his low hits allowed is almost equal to his home runs
allowed so he has to be yanked as soon as he gives us any sign of trouble.
It ain't looking good for the Mets but they play real well under pressuer (game 4 anyone?) and they have a hell of a lot of come from behind wins
under the belt so the pressure might be what they need.
As mentioned above, the last time a game 6 win or die game was played at shea was 1986 and is known as Game 6 to anyone who follows the Mets. I was
there. It was insane. They pulled that insane win out of thin air. Let's hope we don't need those heroics and lucky bounces today.
