Great to see Niese step up and deliver a game winning performance allowing 1R in 7IP. The kid has been a forgotten arm the last few weeks and he deserved this W.
Of course the O did as little as possible to help him out as they refrused to maximize the number of runners on base.
Jason Bay had anither game w/o an inpact hit and ya’ gotta wonder if he’ll ever make an impact again.
The thing about Bay is he’s now desling with concussions. He’s had 2 ( by my count ) as a Met and I think that’s as good of an explaination as any for Bay’s ineffectiveness.
The art of hitting in the Major Leagues is such an art that just the slightest shortcoming by a batter can mean being over matched in the box.
Bay’s had 2 head injuries.
He’s now no longer able to hit.
It ain’t hard to draw the conclusion that Concussions may well have effected Bay and rendered him incapable of hitting.
I’m just sayin…
