Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. The New York Mets precarious lead in the National League East is down to 1/2 game over the Philadelphia Phillies. And guess where the Mets travel to for a Friday match-up? Yup, you guessed it, Philadelphia.
Lew Freedman's Phillies1980! reminds us how great of a sports town Philadelphia is. In-between this weekend's NFL playoffs and the beginning of spring training, Phillies1980! is a pleasant reminder just why Americans love their baseball. No other sport like our national pastime revels in its history. Freedman does an excellent job in reminding us of this.
Noah Syndergaard had 'a day' on the mound and at the plate on Wednesday leading the Mets to a 7-0 shutout of the rival Phillies that completed a three-game sweep - a nice bounce back from a weekend trip to Pittsburgh that saw the Pirates sweep New York.
