Major Props to Josh Thole who game through with as tie-breaking, and eventual game winning, 2 run double.
The young catcher finished with 3 RBI and one gets the feeling his confidence skyrocketed after tuesday’s game. Hopefully Josh can relax at the plate and get back to being a respectable offensive player.
I’m a believer in Thole and I think he can be a .290-.300 hitter eventually. He’s never going to be a power hitting backstop but we don’t need that. So long as he handles the staff well and delivers a solid average I’m happy. In fact I’ll take .270 from him this year.
I’m almost having a hard time believing whats happening:
• The Mets have ripped off 5 in a row.
• Bay is healthy and delivering at the plate.
• Beltran’s all around games looks fantastic
• Jose Reyes’ OBP is over .350
• K-Rod is becoming a fan favorite again
• The Mets are winning with Pagan, last years Met MVP, on the DL
• there’s not 1 starting pitcher who deserves to be yanked from the rotation
