We slept much better last night than we did after Tuesday's tough loss. Santana may not have been the ace stopper we needed last night but he kept us in the game. The Mets beat the Phillies 6-3 and regained a 1/2 game lead in the NL East.

Daniel Murphy had the game winning hit but it was the Carlos Coalition - absent Tuesday night - that secured the victory for us Wednesday. Delgado (3-4 with two home runs) was actually being chatted up as a potential National League MVP (!?!) on SNY and ESPN last night and today. What a world.

David Wright did not exactly have a great series at the plate (2-11, two strikeouts last night). He made some nice plays on the field but the Mets need his bat if this is going to be a successful road trip.

The Phillies play in Chicago tonight, while the Mets are off. Ross Jones (or any Chicago readers of Loge13) - if you go to the game, send pictures.
