There’s nothing like a three-run homer to change the complexion of a game, and that’s what Wilmer Flores just did for the Mets. Couldn’t feel happier for him. Had a chance to speak with him Opening Day. He’s quiet and unassuming, and struggling to make it despite the pressure.
He was ripped several times by his general manager over the winter; literally Sandy Alderson made him a butt of jokes on numerous occasions. Unfairly, of course, but that’s what Alderson does at times.
As with Gee, there are certain players I want to see do well and Flores is another.
Mets 3, Miami 3 (6th)
