Assorted sleep-deprived observations on the New York Mets
The Mets dropped two out of three to the Philadelphia Phillies this week and showed why their fans should make every effort to watch the games that Matt Harvey and Jonathon Niese pitch.
Dillon Gee, Jeremy Heffner and Aaron Laffey don’t exactly inspire a lot of confidence, do they? Finishing with a .500 record in 2013 could prove to be too lofty a goal if they continue to pitch like they did this week.
John Buck, five home runs through nine games… who’d have guessed it? Can he keep up his good run long enough to represent the Mets at the All-Star Game? Stranger things have happened.
I’m a little disappointed that the Mets are missing Mike Pelfrey when they play the Minnesota Twins this weekend, but let’s face it – if he pitched against his old team, he’d probably end up throwing a no-hitter or something just to be contrary.
And just because they’ve been sitting in my scans folder since sometime last year, here’s a baseball card from 1975 showing a very young Gary Carter as a Montreal Expo.
