Our lineup is not so scary.

Neither is their’s lately. So watch out tonight.

I wonder what kinda’ vitamins Yadi’s been taking lately??? ; )

Wow! Down to the last strike of the last out and…..kaboom!

They almost blew it on another poorly played inning behind Bowman and pulled it out like the Cardiac Cards of old. The Mets kept pace but Cards have caught the Giants whose biannual World Series win might be in jeopardy.
