What one has to do with the other is zip but will explain in a bit. The Mets after a delayed take off from Chicago are now in LA for a 4 game homestand against the reeling Dodgers. They had a lead of over 7 games in May but now are tied with the Giants who just swept them . The Dodgers are having a problem scoring runs. Of course the Mets scored all their runs against the Cubbies yesterday in the Mets version of homer ball which comes once a year.
Good to see Murphy clock some dingers as well as Davis break the .200 mark in his batting average. David wright had 5 rbi’s but was taken out early to give him a rest. The guy finally does some significant damage with multiple RBi’s and they take him out.
Mets face the $10M dollar man Capuano tonight who is having a very good year for the Dodgers at 9-2. Of course that means the Mets will have there weak lineup in there to counter attack the lefty. So that means look for it to be a 1 hit game through 5.
Now Reggie Jackson. Its fun when your on a flight and you see someone famous near you. My friend is a on flight from LA and just tweeted this to me. Reggie Jackson sitting 2 across from me. He is wearing his ring, so it's verified. Can he pick up a bat? Cant hurt…
