After two ugly losses, David Wright headed for the DL and the team headed for Philadelphia then Atlanta, the Mets are at a precarious time in the young season. Sometimes I can be glass half empty guy, but these are the Mets and you’ve seen it happen, too.
With Cliff Lee dealing for the Phillies, I envisioned the worst last night, even after – surprise, surprise – Jason Bay homered in the first. But, R.A. Dickey came up with his 14th straight quality start.
Whether last night gets the Mets going again or delays the inevitable remains to be seen, but it was fun to watch.
As far as Bay goes, I’m reading anything into the homer. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then.
Bay did say this is a “big time” for him, and he’s right. He’s been a bust so far, and even should he have two big seasons, is that enough to salvage the contract?
I’m not sure it does, but if he has a good season in could make the last year more palatable and possibly make him easier to move. Have to keep a positive thought, right?
