I don’t think “stud out” is a legit term for use in the english language but it’s befitting of Jeremy Hefner’s outing last nite.
The kid not only pitched well enough to beat the Phils but he also notched his first Big League win AND clubbed a HR for good measure.
It was a big game from our emergency pitcher. Who all told has done his part to keep things moving for the Mets. Chris Young is getting closer to returning so Hefner’s fate is far from certain but if he keeps posting W’s he just might stick around.
Scott Hairston hit a HR of his own and now LEADS THE METS IN HR’s!?!? Wha-?
If Scott Hairston is the leading slugger on this team something ain’t right.
It’s unfair to get on Wright since he’s been above .400 most of the season but hello Lucas Duda - where’s that prodigious power???
Ike has been a catastrophe but jeez Scott Hairston leads the team with 6 HR? Thats pathetic and proves once and for all that the fences weren’t the problem — it’s the Mets.
But the good news is somehow, someway we’re just a game and a half out of first place.
