What was up with that pop up early on in the game between Emaus and Reyes, somebody has to catch that ball. Also, heading into the bottom of the tenth, I wasn't sure who Collins was going to bring in to pitch. Parnell had already been used and there was no way K-Rod was coming out after blowing the save. I thought Blaine Boyer did a good job aka the Verizon guy w/the red beard.
David Wright was able to redeem himself for that bad play at third that prolonged the inning for Niese by producing the go-ahead run in the tenth inning. I know it's only two games but the defense needs a little more fine-tuning, don't you think.
I know the Mets won (6-4 @FLA, 10 inngs.) and I don’t want to knit-pick but did you catch when Collins replaced Ike Davis for Chin-lung Hu as a pinch runner, assuring Murphy 1B for the remainder of the game. The hit that tied the game up for the Marlins went through Murphy. The first thing I thought was, “Could Ike have made that play?”
During the post-game, Collins defended his move by saying he liked the defense he had set up for the ninth w/Hu and Willie Harris in LF, I’d image not necessarily Murphy at 1B, great game, anyway, great win for TC.
Beltran update - scored the Mets second run from first on a double in the gap from Ike Davis. Most likely a day off Sunday in the rubber match for Beltran. Good luck, R.A.
