I don’t know what it is about Justin Turner but I root like hell for the kid.
Maybe the white hot streak to start his season has something to do with it. Or the 2 HR’s he hit last nite. Maybe it’s just his all out hustle at all time.
He reminds me a little of a young Wally Backman. Neither is a guy blessed with ungodly talent or a great body. But both Backman and Turner will out work and out will their opponent.
• The Mets really punished Hansen to the tune of 7ER in 3.1 IP. I guess they were pissed off after not scoring for days lol
• Niese got another cheap win merely because his team erupted behind him. I don’t begrudge him the W since he’s been robbed too many times previous but the run support has camouflaged his less than mediocre pitching of late
