    The mets just lack the toughness and the heart to pull this out. They have a ton of talent but the scrappy more grittier phils are too much.

    If they don't make the playoffs, I'm more inclined to believe it would be because their bullpen can't get anybody out.

    f$&* that game hurt

    Santana better correct that madness tonight.

    Mets are #1 in the majors in the first 3 innings for runs scored. Last for 9th inning runs scored against.
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    That game was a heartbreaker. Woo boy, that bullpen is killing a team that is superior to the Phillies....

    I will give you that they have not had clutch hitting at times, but runs scored in the early innings count just as much as runs scored late or in extra innings. And when the offense gives you a 7-run cushion, the pitchers should be able to win that game. Granted, in this particular game, Pedro gave back 5 of those runs before the bullpen ever came in, but they have had way too many games where they went into the last few innings with a lead, turned it over to the bullpen, and lost. Their struggles when they have them of late have much more to do with the bullpen performance than the heart or grit of the everyday players. They've played pretty hard under Jerry Manuel with a noticeable difference in the "life" of the team since he took over.

    Grips - even I did not like watching that loss last night, you know I hate seeing any Philly team win!

    We were at the Brickyard watching the end of the game last night...
    Champions are made while no one is watching.

    On paper they may be superior but going by last year and what I have seen this year I would say the phillies are superior.

    Yeah, but we already had scored 7 as well as had a 3 run lead when the bullpen took over. Can't expect the offenses to hit and score every inning.
