if the mets lose the NLCS, i know that it's because they didn't have enough starting pitching in october. and that the offense suddenly stopped hitting. and that david wright couldn't be colder at the plate. and that the cardinals' relievers suddenly have lightning bolts in their arms.
but i gotta say that the home plate umpire's "strike whims" didn't help at all either. can't expect an intellectual craftsman like tom glavine to pitch to something as erratic as that.
let's go mets. i still believe.
