So, a few positive comments, then let's see what happens:
Darren Oliver: If this series ends up happily, Oliver's 6 shutout innings will be seen as step one in the salvage job. Other than Roberto's one inning, the bullpen got the night off. Unless Oliver Perez falls behind badly & early tonight, Willie can go back to his bullpen early & often routine that's been so effective most of the post-season.
Reyes: This is good in two ways. Jose played well, lacing a triple. But more importantly, Anthony, the Cardinal pitcher will start tonoght. He's not good, with an ERA over 5.00. Maybe his numbers are better than Perez's, but the Mets hitters are better than the Cards. If the Mets can simply score more runs than the Cards, then it's 2-2 going into game 5, with both Glavine & Weaver pitching on short rest.
We'll see how it goes. But it has to start tonight, with Met bats punishing a poor pitcher. That one step starts the Mo' back in the Mets direction.
