Woulda been nice to win but there was a great silver lining to Sunday’s loss. Seeing the Davey Johnson back in the dugout and winning baseball games warms my heart.
Having been a school age lad during the epic season of 1986, BMF will always have love for everyone associated with that team.
Davey Johnson piloted that team through a rough and tumble National League and World Series back when baseball players drank and fought and partied like rock stars.
I never quite grasped why Johnson wasn’t a regular fixture in dugouts for the past 2 decades. To me the guy is a winner. I guess he’s has his detractors along the way which makes me pull for him even more now that he’s back in uniform.
Certainly don’t want him to beat the Mets on the regular next year but a large part of ms was happy to see him succeed yesterday.
How ’bout Hairston blasting 2 HR’s — and he didn’t even start!
Jose picked up 2 hits so that’s hopefully the end of his first not ho streak of the year (I wouldnt dare to disrespect Jose by so much as using the word “sl*mp” during the season he’s having)
Niese wasn’t his sharpest but you can’t really complain about 2R in 5.1 IP, can you?
