The lowly Mets are officially SURGING but BMF can’t quite wrap my brain around it.
How are they doing it? They somehow have gotten better after Wright and Ike hit the DL. That coupled with Bay’s “invisaBat” and these crazy Mets are winning without 3 of their top 5 offensive weapons.
Of course the obvious answer is the lights out starting pitching we’ve been getting but the Mets I’m used to never let that stand in the way of losing.
Another huge reason for this .500 Mets team that just won a series in ATL(!!!) is the return of Pagan. This guy is magically back to exactly the game changing player he was last year.
But WTF happened when he didn’t slide on an easily stolen base?!? He said he thought it was fouled off which doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve been watching baseball for more than 30 years and I can’t recall ever seeing a runner tagged out while not sliding because he thought it was fouled off.
This coupled with Pagan not retouching second base while scampering back to 1st is giving me flashbacks to 2009.
I almost don’t even want to say it but Bay had 2 hits and is actually showing us there might be some life in his bat. Not holding my breath but…
Too bad for Gee the rains came because he was headed for win number 8.
Now that we’ve drawn back to even Thurs becomes the most important game of the season. We don’t want to immed fall back under .500 we need to build on this immediately.
