Wow - didn’t see that coming. A good old fashioned 11-2 romp. Man, those games are fun!
The crazy thing is Tampa was ALL OVER Chris Young in the first and it looked like the Rays were about to blow US out.
Young hung in there to get the W but while he wasn’t dominant if you throw out the 1st inning he pitched great.
I like Ike’s strategy of dropping down a bunt to lead off the second. It worked since he not only got on base but later smoked a laser of a HR to right. Could this finally be the awakening we’ve all been waiting for?
Jordany Valdespin was 2-5 with 4 RBI and 2 Runs scored. He’s still only hitting .184 but I really like this kid.
Can someone please tell me why on earth ReoSpeedwagon is performing at CityField?
That’s the sort of post-game promotion you see at a Minor League park, or maybe Pittsburgh or Cleveland but not NYC. Are the Mets really so hard up to sell tickets they need to book Reo Speedwagon?
And the bigger question is will REO Speedwagon actually sell any tickets at all.
