More Injuries..Redbird Race..3 Stars

From Sunday's Loss to Larry & the Braves..
Here Are Your:

As if losing Daniel Murphy, one of their most productive players, for the season and Jose Reyes for an indeterminate length of time to injuries during yesterday's loss to Atlanta, Larry "Chipper" Jones managed to slip yet another from his vast arsenal of daggers into the Mets by driving in the winning run off Bobby Parnell in the 8th inning of a game in which the depleted New Yorkers battled back from a 5-2 deficit to tie the game before dropping back to 9 games behind in the NL Wild Card race (not really in the race anymore).
The Metropolitans (56-57) will face a Padres (51-64) team that is coming off a convincing sweep of the Pirates for a 4 game series beginning tonight. BTW I'm hoping to get back to Citi for tomorrow's game if I can work out the public transit details......

Meanwhile in Miami the Cards completed a 4 game sweep of the Marlins but gained no ground on the Brewers (65-50) who maintained their 3 game lead in the NL Central in a sweep of their own over the Astros. The Redbirds (62-53) find themselves 4 games back of the Braves for the final NL playoff spot as they welcome Milwaukee into Busch for 3 games starting Tuesday.

As Always ....LET'S GO METS !!!!!!!
