To commemorate the death of Michael Jackson, the 'Ropolitans have unearthed an extended video of "Bad" in which one of the dancers is wearing a Met cap.
The video came out in 1987, when the Mets were defending champions and it was trendy to be seen wearing their cap.
It still doesn't look like this is going to be a championship year, but suddenly the Mets are just half a game out of first after taking three of four from St. Louis.
The first-place Cardinals turned out to be not so intimidating. They have a similar lineup problem to the Mets - there's just one scary guy in there, so the other team can pitch around him unless the bases are loaded.
Now the Mets must face the Yankees without their two best pitchers of late - Johan Santana and Fernando Nieve. But Gary Sheffield is coming back and Nick Evans is staying in the lineup. The Mets should have beaten the Yankees two of three last time. Could it happen this time? I would have been more tempted to say yes before A-Rod snapped out of his slump tonight, but I am hopeful that I will have a better time at the ballpark this weekend than Squawker Lisa, the celebrity jinx.
