The Mets will not catch the Philadelphia Phillies this season. Sorry to be such a Debbie Downer.
However, the continued owning of Cole Hamels keeps getting better. Today the Mets spanked Hamels around for a career high (or low depending on who you ask) seven earned runs.
I have to believe this is getting in Hamel’s head at this point. Unfortunately, the Midwestropolitan research staff was unable to dig up any evidence of him weeping like a little girl in the visiting clubhouse. Instead, he gave this bland reaction,
“Haven’t really been able to get a good roll against them. It’s kind of one of those games where you just want to throw it out.”-Cole Hamels
Hairston To Start Tomorrow?
“One thing about Scott Hairston, about a guy stepping up when someone’s not around. If that’s not an example of it, I don’t know what is.”-Terry Collins
I’d like to see Hairston get a start tomorrow. Try to see if he has a hot hand.
After an unbelievably horrible beginning of the season, he has been displaying some pop. Something the Mets are seriously lacking right now. Assuming Carlos can play, I would let Bay take a day off.
Let me clarify that this is more of a preference than a statement. I won’t be calling for TC’s head if he doesn’t get the nod.
Jon Niese is good.
