I'll just ignore the 11-0 shellacking today. Halladay pitched extremely well.
I have to show the Mets some love, though.
They've been in the doldrums the past couple of years and, who knows, they may end up being in the doldrums once again when the season concludes.
But, for the first time in a while, the Mets played with passion.
Let's look at game two of the series. In years past, a 7-0 deficit was impossible to overcome; they would've waved the white flag.
Although the Phillies won the game 10-7, I came away impressed.
Whether it was the managerial change or cutting Luis Castillo and Oliver Perez, something is fueling the fire.
Making the playoffs is still going to be a tough task, but at least there's some life being shown.
