How many different threads do we have to read this same exact copy paste on?I think ATW made a mess in his pants last night watching Bumgarner get rocked.
I really want to see that Mets attitude that gave us Ray Knight punching Eric Davis in the face, Keith Hernandez telling Jesse Orosco that "he would kill him" if he threw a fastball to Kevin Bass, or Bobby Valentine disguising himself with a mustache to stay in the dugout after an ejection.I am not sure what to make of this completely. As for attitude, yes I would like the Mets to have a winning swagger, but it seems to me that swagger comes from winning, which means you got to have those key ingredients... defense up the middle, quality pitching and the ability to produce runs (extra base hits / HRs). I am not so sure that a team that goes to that excess would be exactly what we need.
I realize this is old history but this is the missing link for this team...I don't see that spark that they need to have those 9th inning comebacks and great walk off wins.
Walk off HBP, feels a little cheap (kinda like kissin ur sister), but none the less a win, I'll take it.
Jose Reyes was awesome again. That triple in the 9th was great (13th of the year), after he scored thaought that was the game. But K-Rod blew it in the bottom half.
Our pitchers also had alot of k's tonight as well. Dickey deserved a win with that performance 8IP, 3H, ER 1BB, 9K.
Overall, long game to watch, but I guess it was sorta worth it. Wish it was a walk off hit though. The celebration after the game didn't feel right to me.

Although I fell asleep in the B-10 or T-11 I saw the HBP Walk off when I awoke in the post game. I didn't celebrate, but that may have been more being groggy than the anticlimatic finish.
Jose Reyes (you know that guy Sal can't stand) hit yet another triple, and scored the go ahead run for the Mets-ATW
I have this great idea that I'm sure that Mets fan will endorse in huge numbers. On Jose Bobblehead day, (if it isn't scheduled, get it done). Fred and Jeff dedicate an area of Citifield to Jose with a ceremony at home plate. As they speak, his teammates walk out carrying 3 street signs (orange & blue), the one labeled Fleet St. would go on the plate the second, an arrow would go on the inside of 1st pointing toward 2nd and the final arrow would be on the 3rd base side of second pointing to end of Fleet St. on the LF line. Exiting the stadium all fans would receive a small 3x3 laminated map of the 270 ft. path called Fleet St with its two left hand turns. Jose or the Mets logo on the back and a key loop completes the pkg.
Perdictably, the overwhelmed Reyes calls his agent and tells him, "get me the best deal you can, but I am home."

Cross your fingers, Mike Pel-fwee's up tomorrow against the RangersHis last 3 starts have all been QS and then some.
