Bravo to Niese (0R, 6H, BB, 7K in 7IP) Izzy (0R in IP) and K-Rod (0R IP) who combined for the first Met shutout since last September.
Those guys, and Murphy, got the job done defensively but Justin Turner provided the offense going 2-4 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI.
This kid is suddenly the Mets best player. OK maybe thats a bit of a stretch especially with Reyes goin’ OFF as the leagues leading hitter (3-4, 2R .322)
But the Turner kid has stepped in to fill the offensive void created by Wright, Ike and Bay all being disabled.
Of course Wright and Ike are on the 15 day DL but J Bay’s bat has been disabled ever since spring of ‘10
I know we’ve gotten a ton of rain but what’s up with the ponds of water on the infield?
I woulda thought all that money they went into debt for at least provided a state of the art field drainage system.
Again I know it’s been pouring but the field has been a mess since Monday.
