Shockingly the Mets are now 2 games over and a mere 5 games off the pace of the Wild Card leading Braves.
Not to mention the Mets’ 50R over last 4 games breaks franchise record for most ever across 4 games.
BMF has been a staunch believer that we aren’t making the post season and should deal Beltran and K-Rod accordingly. But… these Mets are starting to percolate and I think I’m starting to believe.
Of course the moment I start believing again they’ll invariably hit the skids because of course these are still the Mets.
As for the game:
Chris Capuano started great, finished shaky, but got the Win. He’s 7-7 after allowing 5R, 6H, 0BB, and 6K in 5 IP - hey we owed him a cheap W.
Pagan is almost Reyes hot after banging out 4H, 4RBI, 3R and a SB.
Last nite’s Bay watch was pretty damn good 1-2, 2R, 4BB, RBI, 2SB, 1 spectacular catch and 1 very good catch.
Ho-hum Jose Reyes banged out another multi-hit game along with SB number 30th - can you say MVP?
