Suddenly they're 51-44 at the All Star break, 1/2 game behind Philly & tied in the loss column, great pitching from starters & bullpen, timely hitting, sharp defense, 9 game win streak mostly beating up two sorry west division teams at Shea which is what good teams are supposed to do. One cannot assume anything with da Mets, but who figured two weeks ago these guys would awaken so fast from their somnambulism? Winning is definitely more fun. We can dream a little bit, at least for the duration of the All Star break, of bringing down the curtain on Shea with some magic.
