Turning points; the insecurity of a Mets fan

After half a season of mediocrity the Mets found themselves two games clear of Philadelphia by Friday night in the National League East. On Saturday the lead was cut to a single game after a remarkable win by the Phillies against Atlanta. 

Trailing 3-0 after three innings, Atlanta scored nine in the fourth to the delight of Met fans then promptly coughed up seven in the fifth to give up the lead and ultimately the game. A little to the north at Shea the Mets tied the game with St Louis at 8-8 in the ninth inning yet lost it to a home run from the mighty Albert Pujols in the 14th inning late in the night.

These events smell pivotal, the ones you look back on at season end and say ‘that’s where it changed’. Please let me be wrong.
