Eight Is Enough...But Nine Is Fine......

...and as much as the show was cheesy and kind of heartwarming at the same time, it certainly was one of my guilty pleasures way back when...

And the Mets, having decided Eight Is Definitely NOT Enough, got their ninth win in a row yesterday evening at Shea against the Rockies, who look as unchampionship-like as is possible. The Mets actually are beginning to steamroll over teams, and as I post the daily scores, the amount of zeroes I'm putting up for the opposition are growing exponentially, or so it seems...

Everyone's contributing. The pitching has settled down, the offense is clicking, the D is pretty great, and considering what Mets fans have gone through the last year or so, it feels pretty good to once again have hope, to once again watch a team play with heart and drive and effort, and to once again be in thick of things.

The only negative last night is having to listen, once again, to Jon and Joe, they of ESPN, whom I seriously cannot stomach. How do these two keep their jobs? And can Jon Miller dress any worse? (Insert eye roll here.)

So now, we're officially in the All-Star break, and I just want it to be over. For that, we'll have to wait until Thursday evening, when hopefully, the Mets winning ways will continue.

...as they say, zero is the most telling stat in baseball. Hot damn these boys are looking sharp.

Hot damn, they sure are. But I have to say, Rickey, I want to see this continue after the All-Star Break before I really become a believer in this team, considering everything, and all.
