The Mets Win The Pennant! The Mets Win the Pennant!

In last night's Game 4 the Mets score 6 runs in the first two innings and held on to beat the Cubs 8-3 to gain a sweep of the NLCS.  Lucas Duda drove in 5 runs and NLCS MVP Daniel Murphy hit a home run in his 6th straight postseason game to set a record. Now the Mets have to wait to play the winner of Toronto/Kansas City ALCS in the World Series.

Game summary

At the beginning of the season I would have been happy with an 85-77, but Sandy Alderson made the right moves before the trade deadline to put the Mets over the top.  They finished 90-72 in the regular season which was only the fifth best record in the National League.  But they got hot during the playoffs.

Now it is time for all of the fair weather fans to come out.  I have been a Met fan since the team's inception in 1962 and have suffered through some very difficult times.  I was there in the early years, the late 1970s after the Seaver trade, the early 1990s, and the collapses in 2007 and 2008.

Since I had a 10 ticket package I had a chance to buy World Series tickets.  The price for upper deck seats were $210 while standing room cost $125.  I guess the wealthy fair weather fans will get the tickets.

Lets Go Mets!
