Phillies and Mets Collide at Shea Stadium

To say that this upcoming series with the New York Mets at Shea Stadium is important is an understatement.  The Phillies need to win at least 2 out of 3 from the Mets to bring them within 1 game of taking over the N.L. East.  If they faulter from this they mine as well consider their reign of the Eastern Division over.  They could still be in contention with the wildcard position in which they are currently 4.5 games back from Milwaukee.  However, the Phillies sights are on the Division and taking out the Mets in probably one of the last meaningful series to take place in Shea Stadium before it’s demolition.
