Fernando Proves It's Better to Look Good than to Be Good

Dahlings...From one Fernando to another: Fernando Tatis, I got to tell you something and I don't say this to everyone... you... look... mahvelous!!

After Duanar Sanchez "wanted to make it more exciting" by spoiling an otherwise promising appearance in the 12th by giving up a truly Amazega home run, who thought that Endy, Wright, Beltan and Tatis would step up and take charge? After losing all 24 games they trailed going into the 9th this year, like some kind of bizzaro 2006 Mets? Not me, that's who.

But there it was, a game winning, come from behind, walk off double smacked by Tatis. And it felt a whole lot more like winning than just managing not to lose.

The Mets are still mired in 4th place and haven't hit .500 land yet. But if the Mets are starting to feel like losers even if they look good for one night, they can turn to Fernando for advice: Don't be a Shnock, it's not how you feel, it's how you look!!

Let's Crazy Go Nuts!

    I loved the video, and especially laughed at the idea of Fernando entertaining babes in his spiderman pajamas.

    Did Duaner really say he wanted to make things more exciting? That was another one of those "tongue in cheek" comments, right?

    Let's all sing we've turned the corner, we've turned the corner! And then hyperventilate into a paper bag and pass out. We'll wake up again in first place. Or....start another tail spin?
