We’re back in L.A. and as Grady and Ned have said, we’ve got the Mets right where we want them. OK, so maybe one win or two would’ve been nice in NY, but the home team is the one that’s supposed to win. So if we win the next two and have the momentum heading to NY Sunday night, I like our chances.
There’s a workout at the stadium today for both teams, so we’re obviously still pretty busy. But I wanted to let you guys know a couple things.
First, we’re really hoping that everyone who comes to the games the next two days is wearing blue. As you know, Tommy Lasorda calls this place Blue Heaven on Earth and we should actually make it look like that.
Second, I have to admit that Shea Stadium was rocking over the past two days and we have to keep pace with them. Every two-strike count, every big situation, the crowd there was on its feet. It’s up to you guys, the die-hards, to prove to the world that Los Angeles fans aren’t passive like people think we are. Get this crowd up on their feet and get them going. This place should rock like the ’04 NLDS or any of the great games down the stretch this season.
That’s all for now. If I get a lineup today for tomorrow, I’ll post it in a while.
