Sweeping the Marlins was a nice comeback from the series loss to the Braves in Atlanta. Fortunately, the Braves got swept themselves in Philly this weekend. The Mets enter this week 4.5 games ahead of the Braves in the standings. The Marlins aren’t very good and never should’ve fired Joe Girardi after last season. He was the best thing that happened to that team since winning the World Series in ’03.
The Bonds media circus comes to Flushing this week. I’m with Hank Aaron on Bonds. I don’t care about Barry Bonds and won’t recognize him as the all-time home run champion. As far as I’m concerned Hank will still have the record. That’s all that I’ll say about him.
The pitching matchup of the series in Tuesday night. Tim Lincecum against Oliver Perez. I’m looking forward to seeing what Lincecum can do, he throws heat for a little guy. I understand he pitches a lot like Roy Oswalt.
