I’ve had my parents say, “Don't get hurt” to me a million times before playing a game. They still say it even at my age but I don’t think about it and athletes don’t either for a big reason. If you think about it. It just might happen.
The New York Mets managed to exorcise a few demons at Citifield last night. The idea that they are still “chokers” has now faded into the sunset. Their ninth inning comeback with Jonathan Papelbon on the mound was intense. Two walks by Jordy Valdespin and Ruben Tejada coupled with an infield hit off the leg of the Phils close set the stage up for David Wright.
