Now THAT’s what I’m talking about! THAT’s what I expect from the Mets against the crappy Cubs.
Eddie Van Halen would be proud of the Met eruption in ChiTown to the tune of a 17-1 romp. After 2 weak loses they had some pent up offense which exploded thanks mostly to Wright, who drove in 5, Murphy, who parked 2(!) his first on the year, and Hairston and Ike who both homered and along with Murphy each collected 4 RBI.
Niese was dominant tearing thru the Cubbies and Reuben Tejada picked up 3 hits of his own.
It’s funny I was starting to get used to Quintanilla but now that Tejada is back I suddenly remember how good he is. There’s no reason Tejada isn’t the man at SS for the foreseeable future and I think he’s much more of a key to this offense than we realize.
But what this game really represents to BMF is TC’s ability to get his guys to pick themselves up just when they seem to be on the brink of collapse and roar back to life.
I wouldn’t be shocked to see us win the series in LA this weekend.
