A Nifty Win

August 8, 2011

Ignore the fact the Mets are slightly injury plagued and need some help in the pitching department for one night.

Allow yourself to give them an “atta boy” for a change.  It is enjoyable to see them play with some sticktoitiveness and fight for a win after yesterday’s crushing blow.

A few feel good highlights for me tonight,

  • David Wright’s three RBI night including a two run bomb and a big RBI single in the ninth inning. Amazing what the guy can do when his back isn’t broken.
  • Lucas Duda is quietly becoming quite a run producer.  His two run, walk off single, gives him 10 RBIs in his last 11 games.  That’s almost one a game for you math majors out there
  • Jason Bay goes deep again.  Nothing really witty to say here, I just liked his home run.
  • Last but not least, I really got a kick out of Mike Baxter’s family’s reaction to his eighth inning, pinch hit, double.  Sweet.

Of course, a “Air Claw” goes out to each one of them.  While we’re at it, give yourself one too.

That my friends, is all.  Have a pleasant evening.
