Mets @ Braves: Time for a SWEEP!


It was really nice to see Francoeur break out last night, and for Teixeira to continue his recent hot streak. If both of those guys get going, then the rest of the league better watch out for the Braves. With the way McCann, Chipper, Escobar, and KJ have been hitting, and our recent string of quality starting pitching we should be really hard to beat. Finally!; the team on paper comes alive on the field.

The evil in me is coming out and I want to see us absolutely pound Santana today. I'm not talking just a few runs here and there, I'm talking multiple grand slams and other assorted run scoring. Then in the ninth inning I want whoever is pitching for the Braves to hit the first Mets batter they face square in the middle of the back with a fastball. In the words of Serpentor, "This I Command!"

Remember, no NAHWAL today. Not only do I not have the time for it right now, but I'm also way too superstitious to start it up after we've won four straight without NAHWAL.
