A forum to discuss my humble opinions about the New York Mets and current state of America's Greatest Pastime. I also feature guest contributers Anthony C Wayne and Steve Chilcott. I encourage readers to voice their opinions in the comment section of this blog.
Mets No One Trick Pony, Go On Binge To Devour Twinkies!
Johan Santana struggles? So what. The Mets are no longer a team with only one quality starting pitcher. With the maturation of Mike Pelfrey, and now Jonathon Niese, the Mets continue to win series after series and are sending notice to all the pundits that they are a team that will be in it for the long haul. Bring on the dog days of summer. With the Mets offense flexing some muscle, the Mets beat the Twinkies 6-0, behind the arm of Jonathon Niese. Jeff Francoeur, who's streakiness bedevils all batting coaches, got the Mets on the board in the 4th with a two run shot to left field. David Wright and Issac Davis hit back to back HR's in the fifth. Rod Barajas capped the scoring with an rbi single, the Mets fourth straight hit of the inning. The Mets who won series from both the Tigers and Twins on their 4 and 2 homestand improved to 28-12 at Citifield. Not to shabby. Think that doesn't get into a team's head? I beg to differ. Here is hoping they land Cliff Lee which would allow them to put Hisanori Takahashi into the bullpen where his versatility would be an asset. With Carlos Beltran improving daily during his minor league rehabilitation, The Mets look to be in great shape to make a run this summer.
