...and of course, yrs truly, having figured out in my own mind (no comments, please!) that 10-1 lead surely meant a notch in the ol' Mets win colum, went to bed...only to find out later that the game got wild and crazy, with the bullpen combo of Armas/Heilman/Wagner (whom I'm starting to truly hate, that last guy, the W one) giving up eight runs, including home runs, helped by a bad throw from Beltran, bringing the Phillies to within one run of tying the game. Only this time, the Mets did not fold; they held the lead, albeit barely, and won the game.
Lately, I've heard rumblings in Metsland that Billy Wagner is really Armando Benitez in full costume. I don't believe that's true -- as much as I truly disliked Armando, he looks good by comparison to Wagner.
And you know what? I may hate Wagner, but this guy really is hating on Beltran today, and rightfully so, in this blogger's opinion. So here's to you, Mr. Janish... you've laid out your case far better than I certainly could have, so I'll leave it at that.
