Jose Reyes is officially locked in (2-5, double, 2 runs scored, SB). David Wright is getting more consistent (3-4, 2 RBI) and Carlos Beltran (another HR) is really heating up. Oh, and Johan threw 7 2/3 innings of 1 run ball giving the Mets their 5th win in their last 6 games.
This, Mets Lifers, is what the Mets are capable of. If these guys continue to play the way they’re supposed to, this team should make the post season. For the first time all year, I’m starting to feel confident in them and I’m looking forward to each new game.
By the way, welcome back Ryan Church, who returned to the starting lineup with a flurry, going 3-4 with a homer and a double. Nice to see…although, I have to admit, he still looks a little groggy, watching him walk around in the dugout. Be that as it may, he didn’t miss a beat and continues to impress.
Perez has to keep it going in San Fran and then hopefully (pray) Pedro can stay healthy and stabilize this rotation.
