The Mets scored five runs tonight without hitting the ball out of the infield. It helps when you play crappy teams. It was as if Willie Randolph himself read our previous post and started hitting and running. Meanwhile, the guy who hit the ball as hard and ran as fast as anybody tonight was . . . Johan Santana.
Maybe Santana can give Delgado some hitting advice.
Everyday we should all thank Yahweh or whoever for the Mets being able to get this guy. Tonight, it was almost like if we could have 9 Johan Santana’s on the field we would be a better team(although watching Santana leg out doubles brought on nightmares of hamstring pulls and catastrophic injury). It reminded us of an old Bugs Bunny cartoon where Bugs plays every position on the field. Here it is:
And kudos to Carlos Beltran for scoring all the way from first base tonight on a Ryan Zimmerman throwing error. Gold glove my ass.
