David Wright & Jose Reyes will be disappointed to see Yankee Stadium come down later this year. Especially that short porch in right field.
Wright's & Reyes' bat finally woke up yesterday as both homered and were on base several times. The Mets in general hit well yesterday, but still had trouble getting hits with 2 outs and runners in scoring position.
The fact that we squeeked out two runs with the bases loaded without getting a hit is a testament to this team's season. But the focus of yesterday's game should be on Wright & Reyes. As they go so go the Mets.
A lot of times we say that Reyes is the catalyst and that's true. But the real test of this team's success is the combination of Wright & Reyes. Reyes gets on. Wright knocks the runs in.
It's a perfect formula for success and if it's working you can almost cover the holes in the lineup that are the slumping Delgado and limping Castillo.
A sweep in the Bronx would be glorious tonight, even if it is just a two game series.
