Who woulda thunk it! Sounds like something the late, great Yogi Berra, who passed away in September, might of said. Who would have thunk that the New York Metropolitans will represent the National League in this year's World Series of Baseball?
You saw it from the time they got into the playoffs that the Mets just had that extra thing; call it chemistry, swagger, spark, luck. Whatever it is that makes an average regular season team push into another gear and tear things up during the post-season, the Mets have it.
Tonight they finished off the shleprock Chicago Cubs in a series sweeping game that wasn't even close. You had to feel just a little sick for the Cubs fans as they groaned and grimaced into the lens of every Wrigley Field camera broadcasting the game. It was almost downright painful to watch.
Meanwhile, the Mets played loose and confident as they hit, fielded and pitched like champions. They're a team on a roll having fun.
We Giants fans know the look of a team riding the train of destiny to a championship. Right now the Mets appear to be chugging along the rails of baseball determined to bring a MLB championship trophy home to New York's Grand Central Station.
It's looking like they'll face the Kansas City Royals, who carry a 3-2 ALCS lead over the Toronto Blue Jays, in the World Series.
Let's Go Mets! Lets Go Mets! Lets Go Mets!
Win One For Yogi
