The series returns to New York on Wednesday, as the Mets try to stave off elimination against the Cardinals’ best pitcher. Could the Tigers’ wait for a World Series opponent be over? We shall see…
Wow, even more amazing than the Mets going with Maine for their Game 6 elimination game is their plan to go with Darren Oliver for Game 7! It would be his first started of the season! It’s really too bad the Padres couldn’t get past St. Louis … ain’t it?
