Last time the Mets beat Jonathan Papelbon in a walk-off win, I said, “Beating Jonathan Papelbon while he’s on the Phillies is like sausage wrapped in bacon.”
Still true. Enjoy this. The Mets are firmly in the playoff hunt and the Phillies appear to be fading fast. It looks and feels real this time. But it’s baseball, so who knows if it’ll last?
So I’m looking past the bunt and the bullpen and the defense for right now and savoring the victory. David Wright is the best.
