Mets Grab the Holy Grail

Finally! The Grand Slam arrives, and how fitting it comes from our typical clean-up slugger in Carlos Delgado. I've toyed with some 'turning points' for this team during the year, and just a couple of days ago I realized that the Grand Slam was what was truly lacking, what was truly holding this team back. Well now that's out of the way, courtesy of the Yankees bullpen.

The Grand Slam is a jolt of confidence, a great turning point in any game, providing a sudden 4-run swing in the runs column. These are some things the Mets sorely needed, and even better is that it came with two outs, so it was a dazzlingly clutch RISP hit also. (picture not from today's game)

It’s just one game, although it set a record for RBIs by a Mets player in one game, but even better would be if this was a turning point for Carlos Delgado to finish the season, and maybe even his career, on a warpath to a championship. Of course, the Yankees may be clamoring for him to be their DH next year with his performances at Yankee Stadium.

Now everyone gets to head over to Shea to face Sidney Ponson. Let’s get this party started!

P.S. I know the All-Star game is 'lame' but I'd still like to see Wright, Reyes and Beltran there. So vote! or something.. Try to reduce the Yankee Stadium love fest it'll be by bring some Shea representatives.
