Wow, impressive win in the ‘Burg!
The Mets were exactly what they want to be last nite as Dickey and his knuckler K’d 11 (!), the kids delivered as we got big hits from Baxter and Duda, Nieuweheis took advantage of an Pirate error to extend rally, Byrdak got his batter and FrankFranc slammed the door.
And there you have it a low budget, low star powered team doing what it takes to win.
Dickey kicks more ass with every start. There’s still a part of BMF that fears his magic will disappear but he just continues to impress with his junk. Unreal.
Mike Baxter is on the verge of becoming a phenomenon. He’s prob gonna lose all of his ABs once Bay returns but the kid from Queens continues to get the job done. He shook off Monday nite’s mental error and drilled a double before scoring the eventual game winner. I swear if they just let this kid play he just might go Jeremy Lin on us… Well not exactly Linsanity but you get the point.
Is it me or did FrankFranc just click back into a dominant closer? It’s like his confidence is suddenly percolating heated up by facing his ex-team in Toronto.
Whatever it is, it’s working
