Forget Bill Mahr the Mets have gone Herman Cain 9-9-9 crazy scoring 9 or more runs in the last 3 games.
Possibly more shocking than a Herman Cain reference on BMF is the fact we just swept the Rays… IN TAMPA!!!
Where were all these runs and wins in the BX? As flat and overmatched as we looked against the yankees we were that good against the Rays.
The jury is still out on Santana who is yet to look dominant after the no-no. Johan struggled through 5 frames allowing 4R, 6H, 4BB, and 6K.
I think much of the world assumes everything with Johan is fine but I promise you TC is still yet to exhale as he waits for Johan to prove there are no long term effects.
Nieuwenhuis cracked a lead-off HR and a 2 run shot later in the game as well. Everytime you think the kids magic carpet ran out of gas he re-establishes himself as most pleasant surprise in Queens.
TRIVIA TIME: What once highly touted Met hit a HR which might, just might, turn his season around??? No, not Ike Davis even crazier… yup JASON BAY!
Maybe its that AL East buzz that gets him going, although that never works vs the yankees, but I have a hard time believing Bay is ready or capable of a consistent offensive attack.
