Mets are Back! … ?

As soon as I fully give up on our boys they suddenly, unexpectedly put together back to back wins in Frisco.

Chris Young was back on his game, once again the pitcher BMF expects to see out there. Dominant across 7.

Y’know maybe I’m wrong. Maybe the Mets have a run to respectability left in ‘em… Maybe.

Prob the most insane stat from yesterdays game was Jason Bay going 1-4 with 2 RBI. Those ribbies pushed his season total into the rarefied air of double digits! 

Yup, Bay now has 10 Runs Batted In.

I feel bad for the guy but it’s crazy that he was sitting on 8 rbi into AUGUST.  

I guess inside word is Bay won’t be back even if they have to eat the contract. 

It’ll be interesting to see what Met fan’s attitudes are toward Bay the rest of the summer. I, for one, hope it doesn’t get ugly.

    If we have any chance of getting back in the wildcard race, we need Bay to do something. So while he is a Met, we need to back him when at the stadium. Maybe he can come alive for 2 months. If he can add a little power to the lineup and production, it would really help.

    With RA on the mound tonight, I feel good about a 3 game winnng streak and getting the momentum going to hopefully win all 3 against the happless Padres. We have the Braves coming up at home next week so we can impact closing the wild card gap. We have got to win at least 2 of 3 if not all 3 this weekend.

    I do feel like the Mets are starting to get the hitting back in gear.

    I just feel bad for Bay too at this point. I hate seeing him bat for the Mets but he’s gotta hate it too.

  3. Howard Says:

    Patrick, dont feel too bad for him. The ‘poor guy’ is making 16 mil. I wish I was underperformng while making $16,000,000

    Trying to get a hall pass to see Dickey in person down in SD. As I posted yesterday, the time to make a run is August with a favorable sked (only three series vs quality teams).

  5. Howard Says:

    Yes, looking at the August schedule, if we play great baseball,, I can see us going 21-7 including the 2 wins already against the Giants but I want to accentuate the term GREAT baseball. That would put us at 73-61 going into the final month of the season. A more realistic record would be 19-9 playing very good baseball.

    We have @SD, Miami, Atl, @Cin, @Wash, Col, Houston, @Phil, @Miami

    Can we sweep the Padres and get the momentum going into a huge 6 games homestand against Marlins and the Braves? I hope so!

    re August Schedule, 19 -9 - Wishful Thinking?


  7. JoMama Says:

    Niese-Young-Dickey, Tues, Wed, Thurs vs the Fish. Who goes Friday vs the Braves? Harvey?

  8. BlondiesJake Says:

    I know they aren’t great, but it is fun for us to still be interested in August with an outside chance at important games in September. Too bad there’s not a monster bat in the minors on the verge of being called up. A right-handed slugging OF and this team would have a real chance to be productive offensively on a regular basis.

    BJake: hope you’re in the house, as R.A.’s tossing yet another one hitter at this point

    spoke too soon.

  11. Irish Mike Says:

    Thole demonstrated poor fundamentals and total wimpiness on that play at the plate and it may cost the Mets the game.

  12. the dude formerly known as bill l. Says:

    Agreed. Thole has to hold onto that ball.

  13. BlondiesJake Says:

    Didn’t get a chance to go and didn’t see the play, just saw an error listed on my phone. WTF happened?

  14. Irish Mike Says:

    Well first of all Hairston should have made a better play on a semi-catchable fly ball - he was kind of wimpy about it himself. But they put together a nice relay to beat the runner going home by 10 feet so he loaded up on Thole who basically held the glove out like a matador with a cape and the bull, I mean runner, sent the ball flying out of the glove. Fundamental on that play is to hold the ball in your bare hand inside the glove so that it can’t truly be knocked out. And to stand up there like a man.

  15. the dude formerly known as bill l. Says:

    Alonso doubles with Quentin on first. Hairston tries for it, Torres fields in and sends ball into cutoff man Cedeno. He throws in to Thole who catches the ball, but drops it when Quentin runs into him (not even hard). E2.

  16. the dude formerly known as bill l. Says:

    IM’s description is better.

  17. BlondiesJake Says:

    Brutal. Thole is a lousy and now apparently wimpy catcher.

    And the Mets go quietly……………..
