It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Off Base Since 2005! Mets commentary from the counter-intuitive to the unintuitive and all the intuitives in between. ** "Through the use of humor and gross inaccuracy...a certain truth can be gained." Rob Perri ** (pester me or follow me @itsmetsforme on twitter)

"Houston, we have a laugher!"*

The Mets seem to be cruising down the stretch, stirred by the recent Phillie beatdown into a rennaisance. Nothing but encouraging signs after soundly finishing off the sweep at Shea today.
The remaining drama may be provided by Pedro and his surgically repaired mojo, who survived another outing today, and the health of Carlos Delgado, who raked in last year's playoffs.

The Astros seem to be mentally headed to pasture. How else to explain Toothless shutting them down, taking a perfect game into the sixth? Or the Mets manhandling Oswalt giving the SNY guys space to place calls to their football bookies?

The first game of the set featured the Mets waving Wandy all over the place and showcased LMillz, hitting in the neighborhood of 280 and playing an improving right field. Not too shabby. And maybe the run suport will give the Pelf some much needed confidence to go with his two wins. The Mets are off to a great start of September.

As Milledge recently rapped, "We've been in first place forever."

Magic Number: 15.
