Prior to tonight’s game, again, Jerry Manuel was asked about last September, to which he said:
“I think we’re gonna be fine. Like I said last night, we have to win games…Call it the cloud, the demons, whatever name is good for conversation, but once the game starts, I don’t sense that (the players are thinking about it). If you’re a fan, you’re reminded of it…We just need to make plays, pitch and catch the ball.”
He’s right. Like I wrote this morning, “One at a time…Win tonight, get a better vibe going, and we’ll re-evaluate tomorrow – wash, rinse and repeat.”
For more from Manuel, including comments about what he expects from Johan Santana, tune in to SNY’s Pre Game Show, which begins at 6:30 pm EDT.
