Broom Day? Marlins Aim for Sweep of Mets


   A win today by the Marlins would give them a four-game series sweep of the Mets for the first time ever in South Florida, and the Fish have to like their chances with Ricky Nolasco on the mound. (For the record, the Marlins swept the Mets in a four-game series at Shea Stadium in 2004).

  Brooms    All-time, the Marlins have seven previous four-game sweeps in SoFla with the last coming in 2006 against the Brewers:

 1) May 9-12, 1996 -- Colorado Rockies

  2) Aug. 25-28, 1995 -- Houston Astros

  3) Aug. 25-28, 2006 -- Milwaukee Brewers

  4) April 9-11, 2004 -- Philadelphia Phillies

  5) Aug. 30-Sept. 1, 2002 -- Pittsburgh Pirates

  6) July 28-30, 1995 -- St. Louis Cardinals

  7) Aug. 29-Sept. 1, 2003 -- Montreal Expos

  Mets: 1. Jose Reyes, ss; 2. Alex Cora, 2b; 3. Jason Bay, lf; 4. Chris Carter, rf; 5. David Wright, 3b; 6. Ike Davis, 1b; 7. Angel Pagan, cf; 8. Henry Blanco, c; 9. Jon Niese, p.

Great Game Hits were there and also Pitching was good. One Game at a time few plugs here and there but I think we have a good chance of a wildcard this year.

It's amazing that a team that has a payroll of $160,000,000.00 can't be a team with a payroll of $48 million. The mets can't buy a win. Pathetic mets and their fans. absolutely pathetic!
