Ok so now at least I have seen it in person. Rod Barajas, Jeff Francoueur, Jason Bay, David Wright. Over the last couple of games the Mets have seen some massive shots off the bats of these players with home runs expected as they past first only to have them motor into 2nd with a double.
The other night Frenchie hit a home run, I mean a double that was about 15.5 feet up the 16 foot fence in left field. The next inning he was in right field having a conversation about it with the bullpen catcher Rachinelli instead of warming up his arm. Bay hit one the other day that hit off the base of the wall. Ok so maybe that was more due to it being cold and it might have gone out mid summer.
The bottom line is we have to get used to seeing these moon shots falling for doubles and triples instead of home runs. Check out our latest poll and let us know how many homers you think Citi has cost us this homestand.
