I realize that the Nats aren’t exactly the cream of the crop, but I really don’t care. Any win the Mets can earn while under this current barrage of injuries should be rejoiced. It has to be pretty sweet for the nine guys that spent time down in Buffalo this season.
Gee Does It Again
Dillon Gee continues to impress. Normally, I am a glass is half full kind of guy, but I feel it is necessary to share a couple of things that we need to be wary of with this win.
1. The Nationals are obviously the worst offensive club in the National League. We can’t expect Gee to lock down everyone he faces like this.
That being said, I am very confident that he has the ability to throw a quality start against anyone.
2. Every impressive start Gee provides means we get “witty” headlines shoved down our throats like, “Nothin But A Gee Thing” or “Gee Whiz, Mets Pitcher Shuts down (enter team name here)“
It was cute last year for his first few starts but now it makes me want to vomit.
The Justin Turner Phenomena
Another game, another big hit. Justin Turner also added a couple of fine plays in the field. One of them was umpire aided admittedly, but an out is an out.
This morning I started wondering how long we can expect to see this kind of performance from Justin. All year? Multiple years? Two weeks? Two more days?
I abruptly stopped wondering. For me, it doesn’t matter. I am going to enjoy the ride while it lasts. Worrying about when it is over ruins the fun.
