While my company was having it's national sales meeting down here in Jacksonville, the Mets were staging a performance for the season's highlight reel with a comeback win against a probable postseaon opponent. Down 7-1 against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Mets came back to win 8-7, thanks to a grand salami by Carlos Delgado and a walk-off homer by Carlos Beltran off transplanted ex-met Jason Isringhausen. Newly acquired former Piazza nemesis Guillermo Mota pitched a scoreless inning in the win.
The Mets also solidified their outfield for October tonight, by trading for Shawn Green. Sent to Arizona is no-namer Evan McClane. I guess it's not Milledge Time, after all...
Even better news for the day was the fate of Tom Glavine, who not only is not lost for the year, but may pitch as early as next week.
Mets Magic Number is now 25.
