And Also: The Mets vs. the Braves is like a live action Wile E. Coyote / Road Runner cartoon, except that it seems at times the Coyote has a better shot. Chipper Jones has the "Roadrunner" role down pat, yet again beating the Mets. He even named one of his kids after the Mets' Stadium (Shea) -- so has that tongue thing down too. Anyway, Carlos Beltran: $17M (or something) well spent, huh? Bases loaded, one out in a big spot, and comes up small. Fairly typical.
