In come the Philadelphia Phillies; the team that levied a crushing body blow to us just two weeks ago, leaving all Mets Lifers across the universe dazed and confused. Many of us were perched high atop our ledges, waiving the white flag. I was one of them. But what a difference 12 games make. Rather than being two games back of the Mets for the NL East as they were after that infamous sweep, the Phillies find themselves two behind the Wild Card spot. So tonight, it’s payback time!
It’s time to crush the hopes of Mr. Rollins and his self-proclaimed ‘Team to beat’. I want the Mets to send the Phillies packing, much like we did to the Atlanta Braves. And make no mistake; the Mets want to do exactly that. They’re fired up for this series…and so am I.
