To think that we are only 3 games out in the NLEast . . Wow.

Novel idea Mr.  Wheeler:  DON'T WALK ANYONE!  and good things happen.

We certainly got the young pitching, now we need the bats to flow and make the rest of the season interesting. The guys show more attitude since the shakeup. Got to keep it going. Lets Go Mets!

Great game.  I'd love nothing more then 4 of 5 from this crappy Phils team to get us on track.

Mejia is a beast... we are REALLY lucky they stumbled into this situation. Not only is he a monster, I LOVE the fist pump.  Imagine Harvey to Mejia next year -- demoralizing to an opposing team.

Lamar remains undefeated

It's always great when we beat Howard, Utley and the rest of the Phillies lineup. We got ourselves a closer....Mejia....Mejia....Mejia.

SLOW down on the closer talk folks until Mejia saves 3 nights in a row...

@metaje I guess with that 2nd WC spot, it's never too early to be paying attention to the standings...lol

@jenkins  Lamar's rushing to the Garden to take a shift or 2 but I don't know that he'll make it in time.

"Are the Mets bonafide World Series contenders? If the bullpen stays this good, the mets will go all the way.

Is the organization going in the right direction or the other direction we can not say because we need to show a positive image of the team?"

@jenkins . . their loss is our gain....literally speaking. Lol.

@Victor Triguero  Absolutely.  If Mejia and Black are going to break off curveballs like that, the Met BP could actually be formidable.

@Tormented Mets Fan We should be great... right now. No excuse, we're already there -- the pitching is here and all succeeding. The window is open and it's up to the owners to jump through or just stare at it.

@qualcomm  It's amazing...so which is it?  Did Omar leave the Mets in a lurch or in good stead?  I can't tell anymore
