By taking the series 2-1 (evening the season series at 9-9) the Mets drop the Braves Magic Elimination number down to 8. Neither the Metsies nor Bravos play today so that number will stand until late Friday night.
That's Mega Man in the picture for # eight, though you may know him as Rockman. The dude is dressed up because he's at a concert called Video Games Live, where a symphony orchestra plays a bunch of music from video games. Funny story behind the picture: I saw that guy in costume when I caught the Video Games Live show at the Kennedy Center. You don't think that's funny? Try telling someone you saw a symphony of video game music with Mega Man. They will laugh in your face. Trust me.
