Thank You NY Mets! Thank You for not only beating the yankees but kicking the crap out of Andy Pettitte by sending 10 men to the dish and plating 5 runs in the first.
I’m SO FREAKIN’ SICK of Pettitte already I wish he would just go away and stay away one and for all. Hopefully this is the last we ever see him.
But the greatest moment of the night was clearly Ike Davis’ Alley Oop to Swisher who completed the play by tipping it over the wall for a 3 run HR.
See what happens when there’s a real RF to deal with yankees? Apparently thats more OF territory than Swisher is used to covering since that ball is long gone in the BX. Meanwhile I disagreed with the SNY… Er PIX booth, that wasn’t a HR until Swisher helped it over.
Frank Franc looked like he was about to go Benitez in the 9th and I was starting to regret supporting his “Yankees are Chickens” comment but after a mound visit from Warthen he settled down and closed the door.
Here’s the thing Frankie 2-times isn’t going to give you 1-2-3 innings. Neither was Frankie Rodriguez. And to the best of my recollection Johnny Franco needed guys on base to dial it in also (Maybe it’s a Frank thing). But all that really matters is winning the game and after last nite Frank Franc has 18 saves to his name… Which is A LOT.
Ok so we got one, now lets clinch a series win.
