If Mets management will "do the right thing" and sever ties with K Rod for good, this was the first sign of the End of the not so infamous K Rod era in Mets History.
The Mets continue this 4 game series with the Astros tonight looking for a continuance of the Wright, Beltran, Reyes and yes Francoeur wake up as they send ace Johan Santana to face ex-Met Nelson Figueroa (who in the words of the legendary Ricky Riccardo, "has some 'Splainin to do" as his comments regarding his time with the team were "critical" to say the least).
Meanwhile after a disappointing weekend home series loss to the Cubs, the St. Louis Cardinals return to face the Brewers of Milwaukee at Busch in a quick 2 game set sending impressive rookie lefty Jaime Garcia to the mound as the Redbirds look to at least keep pace and hoping to gain ground on the NL Central leading Reds who have a 1 game lead. The NL west contending SF Giants visit Busch this weekend so the Redbirds need to "make hay" against inferior clubs like the Brewers, who'll send Dave Bush tonight, before facing the Giants and then heading to Pittsburgh, Washington and Houston where they again should prevail in "must win" series' before the Reds come into St Louis for what is building to be a huge Labor Day weekend 3 game set.
My Mets Mantra continues to be :
FIRE JERRY MANUEL !!!
FIRE OMAR MINAYA !!!
Of Course we Mets' fans will continue to BELIEVE !!!!
LET'S GO METS !!!!!
