Here’s to two out RBIs and Chris Capuano. I just raised my beer in the air. Oh, and Jose Reyes. Sorry about that Jose. I’m getting accustomed to you performing like this, so I almost overlooked your “mundane” 2 for 4 day with 2 RBI’s and 2 runs.
Admittedly, I didn’t exactly sprint out my front door and run the streets of my neighborhood shouting to the rooftops about Chris Capuano’s signing. After all, he went to Duke.
However, I feel it is time to give him his due. He has certainly earned some praise for his eighth quality start this season (fourth in a row if you are playing at home). For you math geeks out there that is 53.333333% of his starts to date.
Good job Chris. Keep up the good work. Hopefully the pain in your abdomen was just indigestion or something. It’s about time we catch a break on the injury front.
Two Out RBIs
Three of the four runs driven in by the Mets today were with two outs. Two out RBIs are a plus for any team. For the Mets there is an extra incentive to take advantage of every chance they can because they have such little power. As much as it pains me to admit that Jason Bay singles through the third base/shortstop hole do not qualify as power.
Did anyone else feel kind of bad for A’s first baseman, Chris Carter? No, not that Chris Carter.
The poor guy comes into the game in a double switch (something AL players aren’t exactly used to), and drops an easy pop up with two outs. Jose Reyes then decides to drill a line drive up the middle for another RBI. Like I said, baseball is a humbling game.
On to Texas. This should be interesting…..
