Mets Chat Room: Final homestand begins tonight.

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.

What is your favorite Shea memory?

The Mets open their final homestand tonight at Shea against the Cubs. However, instead of nostalgia, the Mets are in a fight to get into the playoffs. It would have been nice had they wrapped up a playoff spot by now, but the bullpen made that impossible.

Perhaps some of you might enjoy your greatest Shea memory this week should they clinch a playoff spot.

How about the rest of you? What is your favorite memory of Shea Stadium, where many of you grew up?

Mets Chat Room: Maybe a closet?

Not much of a room today. You heard we were down. I made a prediction prior to the Braves series that David Wright would break out of it. Well, he homered today. I think he’ll be fine.

Any, for those who dropped by, thanks and feel free to post whatever is on your mind. We’ll be up and running for the Cubs’ series. Sorry again.-JD
