TWICE AS NICE

27 Apr

While the weather felt like October, the Mets made this April home stand that more memorable, beating the Dodgers twice on Tuesday.

The Dodgers played as poorly as the Cubs and Braves did at Citi Field, looking like a defeated team with big bullpen problems.

As for the Mets, they pitched well and received timely hits. David Wright showed signs of breaking out of his slump, getting three hits in the night-cap and Jason Bay hit his first long ball of the year.

With the two wins, the Mets have now won 6 in a row and 8 out of 9. They are now 12-9 with an opportunity to head into Philadelphia this weekend in first place.

The Mets still have holes, from the rotation to the offensive concerns. However, they have pitched well and they are playing as smart as they ever have under the Jerry Manuel era.

Fans should be careful to not pop the champagne just yet, especially with the Mets being one bad weekend away from feeling as if this home stand was more of an exception rather than the norm.

Keep your composure and enjoy these rare winning days. This could be the start of something special.

But it is still one great week in a season and a game that can be rather cruel.

    I can’t remember the last time they were this hot. I’m guessing it was sometime in 2006. We know they weren’t as bad as the first two weeks, and they’re probably not as good as the last 2 weeks. At least they are watchable.

    As you mentioned they have caught a break catching 3 teams playing horribly, but they still had to execute and they did. What’s even more remarkable is that they are getting next to nothing from Maine and Ollie and they’re still winning ballgames. Let’s get the sweep tomorrow!
