O'Connor: Mets good enough to win it all

The Mets didn't retaliate for Chase Utley's hard slide; they simply went out and won Game 3 to make a case that they're not just good enough to win this series, they're good enough to win it all.

Well, that was fun. With all the offense today it was like watching 1999 baseball again. Remember that 23-7 game between the Red Sox and Indians? So now the spotlight will return to Clayton Kershaw, pitching on three days' rest, just like last season when he lost 3-2 to the Cardinals. He's lost five straight postseason starts. No pressure.

After enduring Adam Wainwright’s curveball to Carlos Beltran, two collapses, then six straight losing seasons, Mets fans had plenty to celebrate during the first postseason game in Queens in nine years. Following pregame introductions that included jeers for Chase Utley and cheers for Ruben Tejada, the Amazin’s blasted the Dodgers, 13-7, on Monday in Game 3 of the NLDS. The Mets took a 2-1 series lead and can advance with a win on Tuesday. The Mets established a franchise postseason scoring record. The previous mark came in a 12-5 NLCS win against the Cardinals on Oct. 15, 2006.
