Ok now that there is no real drama for this friday the Mets can move on and play the Phillies who just made a crazy comeback against the Dodgers yesterday.
The Mets beat the Rockies yesterday 4-0 and have beaten them like 23 out of the last 27 times they have played in NY. Too bad the Mets dont have that record against the Phillies.
The Phillies activated Shane Victorino from the 15 day dl before the Dodger game yesterday. He had ben suffering from a lower adominal strain. He didnt play last night.
The Phillies come in winners of 8 of there last 10 and only 2 games behind the first place Braves. The struggling Mets now are in 4th place as the Marlins, winners of 4 straight are .5 games ahead of them
The Mets will have R A Dickey on the mound against Cole Hamels tonight and Saturday face Roy Halladay and the Mets have not made a decision on his opponent but it could be Pat Misch .
We will see if the Mets can use the Santana win as a stepping stone or will they continue to flouder at .500
