Some days its Ike Davis other days it’s Niese. Thole, Pridie, Beato and F-Mart have taken their turns too but Thursday afternoon our young heroes were Dillon Gee and Justin Turner.
Holy Crap Gee actually started dancing with immortality as he spun a no-hitter into the 6th. But alas it was not to be as Livan Hernandez (!!) singled to end it.
DRATS!!! Just when I was starting to fantasize about what sort of a legend Gee would become for tossing the first no-no and POOF the dream is gone in the blink of an eye.
Shout to Tejada who collected 2 hits himself yesterday.
Gotta give some love to Jason Bay who collected no less than three hits — THREE HITS!!! No runs or RBI but I’ll take 2 singles and a double from Bay any day.
I gotta say there’s something to be said about these hungry, athletic and talented young Mets.
Now let’s focus on the yankees. The past few years I’ve felt like a lamb going to slaughter vs the Evil Empire but this year I feel like we’re so young and so loose we can go in there and take 2 of 3.
Oh how sweet that’d be.
