The Mets, in game one of yesterday’s doubleheader, started to exploit a weakness they should continue to exploit on Saturday and Sunday. Jorge Posada is off the D.L. for the Yankees, and hitting well, but, his throwing is not well, yet.
The Mets stole three bases in game one, but, had opportunities for more, and they should run more on Saturday and Sunday, if Posada is playing (Posada was rested for the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader). Posada had trouble throwing the ball to second base, bouncing his throws. The Mets took advantage, as Luis Castillo stole has 12th and 13th bases, and Jose Reyes, his 28th.
