Another Met Win

I’m sorta taking this weekend off from the site but can’t resist a couple thoughts:

Wright is back and Hitting! Great to see maybe the layoff really did refocus himĀ 

Definitely frustrated with Pelf during the game but he did get the win.

Duda continues to grow in the bigs. Yes he cost a run when he lollipoped a ball from left but I’m most concerned about his offense. 2 more hits…

    It would be fantastic if the Braves could lose a few games.

    Wright looked great out there. Hopefully, we can get on a nice little streak and see where we end up.

    Pelf did not get the win…Parnell did!

    It was great to see the Mets beat the Fish like that, usually they lose those type of games down here.

    Now lets take the series today!

    LETS GO METS!

    Good job by the offense, though they squandered a ton of chances.

    Parnell consistently looks like a guy who is ready to become a closer. He throws hard, seems to hit spots and can throw a breaking pitch for a strike on 3-2. He’ll have ups and downs as closers do, but I believe he can handle the job and hopefully gets a few chances this year to give him confidence for next year.

    Murphy doesn’t always look graceful, but he made a nice play on Wright’s bad, lazy sidearm throw, even tho the ump blew the call, and made a nice aggressive play cutting down the lead runner at 3rd on the bunt in the 8th.

    Duda continues to impress at the plate and I firmly believe the power will come. Imnsho, it’s more important for him to hit for average to start, especially since it’s clear he has the strength to drive the ball out of the park.

    In a perfect world next year (re-sign Reyes, no injuries), I’d love to see the break down of games play in the IF to be:

    Ike: Start 9 of 10 at 1B
    Reyes: Start 9 of 10 at SS
    Wright: Start 9 of 10 at 3B
    Murph: Start 6 of 10 at 2B, 1 of 10 at 3B, 1 of 10 at 1B
    Tejada: Start 4 of 10 at 2B, 1 of 10 at SS.

    This would keep Ike, Reyes and Wright at about 145 starts to keep them fresh for the entire seaosn, and would allow Murph and Tejada to get around 130 and 80 starts, respectively.

  5. ProfessorReyes Says:

    LC not bad but you’d have to watch the SS/1B matchups to keep a veteran in there, especially for the “big” games. What a nightmare of planning that would be tho!
    I too would like to see more of Tejada a short.

    I’m going with Keith’s description of the game: ugly.

    I thought the umps were consistently below average, and all night it was a case of “the lord giveth and the lord taketh away.”

  6. Lord Charles Says:

    Totally agree. This would have to be a guide only, not an absolute mandate. Make adjustments for tough matchups, hot/cold streaks, etc.

    And it’s too bad that Murph wasn’t a switch hitter; then he would be a perfect compliment to Wright and Davis.

  7. Fort Greene Met Fan Says:

    Big big props to winning this seesaw game—live how this team never gives up! We had to go ahead 4 separate times. Not ideal, but impressive.

    What a pleasure to see DW back. Pelfrey must have caught OP’s nutcase germs. Can’t we give him some Ritalin or ginkgo or something?

    Really impressed by Parnell and Izzy for different reasons. But they both got the job done with totally different levels of experience, skill sets, situations, etc. I’d like to see Parnell grow into our closer.

    What was up with Dobbs in the locker room and McKeon yelling his head off? Mex was so funny, like an 8 year old: “Ooooh, he’s gonna be in TROUBLE!!!”

  8. ProfessorReyes Says:

    That was hilarious, and Keith seemed to get an unhealthy amount of glee from it!

    Heads up, we’re the free mlb.tv game o’ the day folks!

  9. BlondiesJake Says:

    Time for Nuke LaLoosh to be sent down to work on his mental issues.

    Love LC’s concept of time-share on the infield. Not worried about Murphy v lefties because I’ve seen him get some hits against them (tho confess don’t know his BA, OBP or SLG v southpaws).

    This year has already been a success for the emergence and growth of Gee, Murphy, Turner, Tejada, Duda and to some extent, Pridie.

    I still think Pagan makes too many mental errors as the starting CF but OF not biggest concern right now.

    Beltran will eventually be dealt when the Giants agree to give up top pitching prospect.

  11. KMac Says:

    After watching Murph throwing over the top from 3B lately, DW’s underhand flip looked even worse last night and of course he made a bad throw. I don’t understand how they let him continuously do that.

  12. BrooklynBill Says:

    Wouldn’t this be nice:

    Felix Hernandez
    Johan Santana
    Jonathan Neise
    Chris Capuano
    Dillon Gee

    hey, a fan can dream…

  13. BlondiesJake Says:

    I would deal Wright in a trade to get King Felix as well.

  14. ProfessorReyes Says:

    Gotta love Gary’s call on Duda’s home run:
    “and the Big Lebowski…”

    He’s probably been holding that in for months.

  15. Patrick Says:

    Certainly beats, “Hah! You’re on the Mark Teixeira!”
    Everytime I hear that I want to vomit.

  16. BrooklynBill Says:

    A Tex message!

    Swishalicious!

    The Grandy Man can!
