Setting The Table For A Steal?


Raise your hand if you thought the Mets were going to bungle tonight’s game when Niese left.  For those of you that didn’t raise your hands, you should be ashamed of yourselves for being such blatant fibbers.

I applauded Terry Collins for yanking Pedro Beato once Brian McCann was called on to pinch hit.  There was no better time to use his lefty then right there in the seventh inning.  Midwestropolitan, Tim Byrdak, did not disappoint fanning McPain In Our Ass as well as Diory Hernandez.

Timmy would get my game ball if this were little league and I was his coach.  He’ll probably settle for a beer from Jon Niese for helping him save his sixth win and his fourth consecutive quality start.  I would think Pedro Beato owes Byrdak a beer as well for bailing his ass out of trouble.

Jason Isringhausen is not looking so good.  He gutted his way through the eighth but almost wound up giving up back to back jacks to tie the game.  He has been and is someone we should keep an eye on.

What more can we say about Jose Reyes?

The Amazin’s put themselves in quite a lovely position to steal another series from the Braves.  With Gee and Dickey taking the hill the next two days I certainly feel good about the possibilities.

    Also hand raised! And happy with how the McCann situation played out, love that Terry is on top of things and not asleep at the wheel like we’ve had in the past. Lets get to .500!

    I love it. Icgsports and Kellie are straight shooters!

    Beato needs to get his act together. maybe a trip to Buffalo or something. i get queasy every time he enters the game lately.

      He’s been one of the few head scratchers in terms of the young Mets. It seems as though he lost his confidence post injury. I wonder if it is in the back of his mind.

      His body language on the mound is completely different now. You can almost see fear.
