OK so Verlanander beat us. No sweat we still went into Detroit and took 2 of 3 from the Motor City Kitties.
Pelfrey was frustratingly “off again” but I didn’t expect to win that match-up anyway.
Reyes went 2-3 and pushed his avg to .352. The game just looks so easy for him right now I can’t believe he’s a Met. Lol
Meanwhile guess who our second best hitter is - Daniel Murphy! Yes Beltran is having a more productive all around season but Murph is now hitting .302
Manny Acosta tweaked his wrist when he made a sick play to chase down a bunt that got past his as he came off the mound, whirl and fire a bullet to first. Duda made a very solid play to catch the laser thrown from not very far away.
Bay was an encouraging 2-4 on the nite as he continues to show there’s a real live ballplayer in there after all.
Who else is psyched for Subway Series? I’m predicting a big series for Pagan and at least one bomb from JBay.
Condolences to Willie Harris and his wife who apparently lost their unborn child when she went into premature labor at just 5 months.
What a terrible thing to happen. I hope he takes as much time as he and his wife need from baseball’s new bereavement leave.
