Death, Taxes and No Easy Wins
This game had everything, but the most important thing is that it ended with a Mets win. Couple that with a Phillies loss and you get a 3.5 game lead in the NL East.
The great thing about the way this team is playing right now is that it doesn't matter which facet of the team is underperforming because another facet picks up the slack. When the starting pitching falters, the bullpen holds. When the bullpen crumbles, the offense scores more runs.
It's a vicious cycle, but I'll ride it to a pennant if I have to.
