Over .500 Reasons for Mets Win*
I tuned in a bit late yesterday, only to think I'd turned on the TV and gone back to 2006 and the early part of 2007. Who was that goofy clown, getting on base and scoring runs? He looked familiar, but I couldn't place him. Today's big story is that Carlos Beltran told Reyes to return to the antics that, though they were entirely inappropriate for a team tanking a promising season, seem to be at the heart of Reyes as a player. So, whatever. Apparently Jose's offense is linked to his ridiculous handshake rituals. But there are some other "reasons" the Mets are looking better. Joe Smith has returned, at least for now, to the success of his early days too. Willie stuck Church in the two hole and dropped The Gimp to eighth in the lineup, a move which is said to have some effect. And as Matthew Cerrone rightly points out, the veteran Mets are falling all over themselves to provide quiet leadership. Though John Maine did not look or feel "100 percent" it was nice to see a little emotion when he got angry at himself when hooked by Willie in the seventh. The sweep is in order. Let the good times roll!
In other news, Limatime is on the run again. It seems he will be leaving the DMZ of Korea (De-Mammarized Zone).
