After a disappointing road trip the Mets open their final homestand, and the final week of the season tonight at Shea against the Cubs.
“We’ve got to close the deal out at home. We’ve got to give Shea Stadium a nice send off,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “We have the opportunity. It’s right in front of us.”
Of course, the Mets had the same chance last year, but went 1-6 the final week.
Here’s something you never heard before. It’s from David Wright.
“We’re going to see what we’re made of,” he said, in what could be prophetic either way, this time next week.
