In the sixth inning of last nights ballgame with the Marlins, David Wright launched one into the seats of Citi Field and also put himself into the Met history books by becoming the brand new all-time Met RBI leader and put the final nail into the coffin in terms of what the Mets should do with their star third baseman.
You pick up that 2013 option right now and you sign this man to a long term deal. That’s what you do if you are the Wilpons.
R. A. Dickey pitched seven strong innings striking out seven Marlins while only walking one. His lone earned run came in the fifth when Marlins second baseman Omar Infante went yard…
Mike Baxter pinch hit for Scott Hairston and responded with a two out double that drove in two….this guy can hit its too bad there’s no place to play him.
Josh Thole extended his hitting streak to eight games….good for him!
Lucas Duda had a couple of hits and an RBI….
Bust out the broom and the dustpan….I feel a sweep coming on!
It’s been a couple of days since I’ve been able to post something, life sometimes does get in the way you know. I did do the Mets weekly report yesterday if that counts for anything. If you haven’t listened to it as of yet you can access it here.
Jose Reyes returned to Citi Field a midst cheers and boos and took a collar on the night going 0-4….it’s too bad he got booed. He did what he needed to do and what EVERY single person in the stands would do….he took the money. So what.
Johan Santana threw another beautiful game last night and once again gets a no decision. Three hits, one run, eleven strike outs and only two walks. I’d say the “old” Santana is back and that’s a good thing for both the Mets and for him.
Josh Thole is on fire at the plate folks….I wish he’d get better behind the dish but if he continues to rake like he has it will be much easier to watch the defensive adventures of Josh Thole this season.
Lucas Duda got the game winning RBI…he’s going to be okay I think.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis made another outstanding grab last night and seems very comfortable batting leadoff….we’ll see what happens when Torres comes back.
Jordany Valdespin saw his first big league action last night at second base…I like this kid.
Good win especially after black Monday with the Giants….hopefully the Amazins will win another one tonight when R. A. Dickey takes the hill.
