Out Of Sight, Out Of My Mind

Can the Mets make it any harder to stay enthused about the team?  The only good thing about teh last four days is that they are playing in California, at gametimes too late for those of us with day jobs to stay up and endure the beatings.
Condolences to transplanted ex-Mets reliever Scott Schoeneweis,  who is mourning the sudden death of his wife.
Congratulations to ex-Mets superstar Darryl Strawberry on the release of his latest autobiography.  I think this is like the eighth or ninth.

Transplanted Ex-Mets Update: Lastings Milledge has surgery on busted hand

Another game that proves nothing can be predicted in baseball:  Johan Santana finally got run support, and he needed all of it, as the Mets beat Randy Johnson and the San Franciscans in a game slightly less than a pitchers duel.  A Philly won the Preakness, and the Phillies beat the Expos, but the Expos' AAAllstar candidate Lastings Milledge had surgery on his broken ring finger. 

Mets go for the sweep today!
