Bay Back = Win

That’s probably an over simplification… But until further notice Bay’s return has recharged the Mets.

The boys erupted for NINE runs! Holy crap it took them 5 entire games to score their previous 9 runs.

BMF was super relieved to see Bay pick up a hit in his second AB. It quickly eliminated any possible O-fer to start his season and I feel like it led to the good karma of his little league HR. 

Quick Hits; 

• How bout Chris Capuano’s performance of 1R, 6H, 2BB, 4K in 7IP. I still have faith CC can be a very effective arm for u’s this season.

• Wright sprung back to life with 2H and 3RBI including a bomb.

• Ike unloaded an deposited a ball deep into the black batters eye in CF. Davis’s ball easily cleared the entire apple.

• Collins ran out early in the game to argue a strike call and got himself tossed. He seemed to be pushing it with the ump as if he wanted to get run which he quickly did. But it was so early the fans weren’t quite ready to get supercharged like they would’ve the other night when I said he should gotten himself run. But the Mets win big so what do I know.

• Murphy sitting in dugout looks like a character in Mad Men. I don’t even watch the show but he’s got this old fashioned look to his hair and face.

• Wright & Reyes played their 800th game together last night — holy crap!!!! That’s crazy.

    I’m with you on each point BMF. All’s Wright with the world today. Hope Wright & Reyes make it to 1,000.

    Great interview with Sandy on WFAN yesterday afternoon. He told the bloated butterball Met-bashing host that something would happen to turn things around.

    All I can say is I just felt good watching the boys have a sorely needed laugher. Lifted my spirits to see them laughing and high fiving in the dugout. Maybe the spell is broken and it’s time for a run.

    LET’S GO METS !!!

    Well, that was fun. I think I’ll leave that one on the dvr to be brought out again as needed. “In Case of Emergency: Break Glass.” Just excellent. I hate the black hats, in general, and was diggin’ on the fact that the Mets had heretofore abandoned them this season, but hell, if that’s the result, bring em on.

    Typical Mets, with Pagan going out as Bay comes back, but if any Met could use a few days off at this point, it’s probably Pagan.

    CC for Mets MVP. I love the name someone here stuck on Pelfrey the other day: “The Big Disappointment” All the same, here’s hoping he sheds that moniker tonight.

    “Even the longest journey begins with a single step.”
    Lets Go Mets!!

  3. Florida Met Fan Rich Says:

    Boy did we need that win bad! Its about time we were on the right side of a laugher!

    Lets not get crazy here now though, it was the ASTROS! They really do suck more than us, and they still won the series!

    What we need to do is sweep th D-Backs and then maybe we are on to something.

    As the dude formerly known as bill l. Says, single steps so lets at least win the series and they we go the Nats!

  4. BrooklynBill Says:

    Last nite’s win was nice but it won’t amount to much if all our positive momentum is drained away by another poor outing by mini Pelf.

    He needs to put it all together tonite. Based on the early MO of Sandy, Pelf could soon find himself in the SABR Mets bullpen and Gee could end up in the rotation!!

    Come on Pelf!!

  5. BlondiesJake Says:

    All is well for at least one day. Let’s hope Reyes and Wright end up playing at least 1500 games together. And maybe Pelf will pitch big.

    I’m amazed that R.A. Dickey’s brutal honesty never made it to this site. I believe Dickey’s comments may have been just what the team needed. He said ““There are things we have to be honest about, because if we keep walking through the season and keep telling ourselves we are a better team than this without identifying what’s going to make us better, then we’re going to look back and have a lot of regrets.” THANK YOU R.A.! I APPLAUD YOU FOR COMING RIGHT OUT AND SAYING WHAT NEEDED TO BE SAID. As far as I’m concerned..R.A. DICKEY is the captain of this team..not David Wright.

  7. Dave Says:

    Another thing. I think that both Dickey’s comments and the return of Bay played a big part in the win last night. Just my opinion.

  8. Fort Greene Met Fan Says:

    Love R.A. and his candor. Could he be…a LEADER? This team sure could use one.

    Would be great if this could be a momentum shift for the team. They definitely needed it. I think Bay in the lineup protecting Wright will help a lot. Scared to see Harris/Hairston out there every day but not like Pagan was lighting us on fire either.

    Goddamn, I miss Johan!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Dave Says:

    some more comments by dickey: “We can’t keep telling ourselves, ‘Oh, we’re a better team than this.’ We may not be….We’ve got to be honest about that and identify what we’re doing wrong and do it better. That’s the only way you have any real growth. If we want to reach the destination that we have set out, then we’ve got to be honest with ourselves about how can we take more ownership and what’s going on around us.” NOW THAT’S A LEADER…i can’t see any of this coming from the mouth of David Wright…our so called “team captain”. He’d give the same standard “we know we’re a better team than this” answer..blah blah blah

  10. Cowcrusher Says:

    If R.A. is going to be the “captian”, then let’s hope he stays healthy all season so he can lead, even he is just in the dugout watching. Also giving good advice to the rest of the pitching staff.

  12. BrooklynBill Says:

    Hopefully Dickey is as vocal in the clubhouse and doesn’t just give catchy sound bytes to the beat reporters to run with…otherwise he’d be the antithesis of a leader. Airing dirty laundry to the press won’t exactly endear you with your teammates or the manager.

    I’m obviously not in the clubhouse but I get a sense that Dickey is genuine…who knows what else he’s standing up and saying. I think a SP can be a leader, doesn’t necessarily have to be an everyday player or the player with the all-star stats.

  13. IrishMike Says:

    Well Dave is either R.A.’s agent or his brother. Good to see he is using this blog to sing his client’s/brother’s praises and drum up merchandise sales.

    Pitchers can’t be captains. Only everyday players can. Good for R.A. for speaking up though.

    BTW could Citi Field be any deeper into Wright’s head? Every comment postgame he makes includes a reference to “this ballpark.”

  15. JJ Says:

    Have the 800 games Reyes and Wright played together led to anything…no…so who cares? And no offense Blondies but do I want to see another 700 games of loser baseball…no…

  16. the dude formerly known as bill l. Says:

    Allright! Two in a row!! Just sweep the weekend and we’ll be back to .400 :)

  17. Dave Says:

    IrishMike. I’m a fan. And i like when somebody says something that needs to be said. Somebody that identifies the problem, and tries to solve it. I haven’t seen anybody else on this team talk the way R.A. did. And I also think that us..being Mets fans..we should appreciate a member of our team being straight up and honest with us..the fans. Stop giving that same stupid f-cking generic answer of “we know we’re a better team…” blah blah it..let’s be real…and Dickey was real. Simple and plain. I APPRECIATE THAT.

  18. Dave Says:

    R.A.’s honesty was REFRESHING. I think this team needs more honesty. I think we’re lied to..constantly. Wether it’s by the wilpons..or whomever.
