Mets Roast Arizona
This team has been mediocre or just above mediocre all year long. They show flashes of brilliance, then funk out for a week, in between letting Pedro down again and again.
Well, after five months of being awful on the road, they have just swept four straight in Arizona. Arizona ain't a great team, but four straight is four straight.
And now out of nowhere, comes Mike Jacobs. Hits a home run in his first major league at bat at Shea, and then hits three more in his next three games. And he alternates between first and catcher, right for the Mets needs.
And--Jay Seo great as a starter, a fabulous left side of the infield with Wright and Reyes, and...maybe too many pitchers.
The other day, I heard Larry Bowa on the radio saying that he did not see the Mets as playoff contenders. Larry, want a do-over on that comment?
Best thing about this game: an army of Met fans in Arizona stadium as the game ended. The Yankee fans do that in Baltimore and other places, good to see the transplanted NYers do it in the desert.
