12-5 win.

Yeah, Glavine is next on 3 days. Games 6 & 7 starters are goats though plus Glavine I think is 2-5 playoff career on short rest. If Beltran and Delgado continue to produce then the Mets will have a chance. They're not going to score 12 runs every match though.

I don't really follow it much anymore. I tend to follow sports in general and when I lived in the U.S. it fell in naturally as one of the sports I followed. As it's the playoffs I've kept my eye on it though.

Since 1988 I've been a closet Mets fan so I'm hoping for the best here.  :devil:

game postponed, glavine gets another day of rest.  I like Jeff weaver a lot, esp after the yankees fans run him out of town, but I really hoping he not on his game tomorrow.

4 - 2 win for the Cardinals. Last 2 games (game 7 if necessary) will be in NY. They big problem for the Mets is still the pitching. The Cardinals ace is the starter for Game 6 vs rookie pitcher John Maine. As I said earlier, it's not everyday you're gonna get 12 runs so on these days when it doesn't happen the pitching and defense keeps you in the game.

Well at the bottom of the 4th it's still 1-0 to the Mets. Maine has a 2-hitter going and is so far making a mockery of my lack of faith in him. Still plenty of time to go in the game though.

Steve Trachsel, Oliver Perez and long reliever Darren Oliver are the names being played with, but Trachsel is the conventional choice since he's apparently recovered from his bruised thigh. Perez isn't bad, but he's like the West Indies cricket team... never know what to expect from him.

The Mets had me nervous in the 9th when they gave up those 2 runs, but they did enough tonight. We'll see how they do in Game 7.

a real heartbreaking loss for the mets last night.  things look bright for next season offensively, but Minaya will have to bring in at least one more young pitcher, Pedro, el duque, glavine and trachsel are all past their prime.

Cards will put up a better fight than all the experts predicting.

The mets was still impressive this season...I have confidence that once they improve their picthing power they'll be an automatic playoff team next season...

The thing is , unless your name is Yankees, baseball teams rarely play the same way back to back seasons... :beermug:

They do that with all their sports... they call the winners of the Super Bowl or Basketball championships the "world" champions. Even if occassionally the team probably is the best in the world unless the "world" had an opportunity to compete for it I think it's just arrogant nonsense.

We been through this once before the term "World" for world series is due to the fact a newspaper called "the World" sponsored the first one, thus the name.  Just like all them bowl games called "fed ex orange bowl" etc
The name stuck most likely due to the American arrogant nonsense you talk about but the original name has nothing to do with world in terms of global.  However you guys are correct in assuming 70% of the American public thinks it means world in terms of global.
