...and Mike Pelfrey pitches the first complete game of his career last night at Shea. By the reaction of the crowd in the bottom of the ninth inning, you'd have thought you were at a World Series game.
In the post-game interview, Pelfrey seemed kind of shell shocked and stunned by the reaction of the Shea Stadium crowd. I got news for ya, Mikey -- if you continue on this way, you had better get used to that. Much like the encores some of the offense are goaded to give by the wildly enthusiastic Shea fans, so the pitchers get the ninth inning on-yer-feet treatment by the crowd. Shea is like nothing else when the going's good, and last night, the going was VERY good, indeed.
I think I'm at the point where I'm finally able to call the Mets a TEAM. They are playing like one, celebrating like one, supporting each other like one, and if walks like a duck... well, you know the rest. This Mets duck is quacking fiercely, and if the bullpen holds up, and the offense does enough, and the starters continue to perform the way they have, well then, duck soup is certainly very possible.
They don't call 'em The Amazins for nuttin!
And now, for the piece de resistance, the Yankees suck image du jour. And make sure you say that as im-azzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzhhhhhhhhe, with the zzzzzzzzzzzzzzhhhhhhhhhe very, very, stressed -- JUST LIKE THE YANKEES! Yuck yuck yuck....
