A Kiner and Gentler Mets Win*
Toothless somehow struck out five and pitched a two hitter, even though he's been pitching batting practice lately, he looked good. Oh wait, it was the Reds with bats in their hands.
Chris Woodward looked different. Was it the sox?
Anyhow, what can you say about an O.G. like Lastings? He looked ready to go in spring training and maybe he will finally prove some of his doubters wrong. I would be content to ride with Thrilledge and GO-tay for the time being.
Someone needs to light a fire under Delgado's ass. That's what it's all coming down to. That baby is really distracting him from being a left handed threat in the middle of the lineup. There's no breast feeding in baseball, Carlos! Los Carlos' seem to feed off each others sucess and failure.
I'm forever grateful that I got to see Yogi Berra and Ralph exchange slurred time-delayed quips and stories. I don't know if you caught it, but right at the end of the segment in the booth, Yogi says to Kiner, "I'll see you (later)," to which Ralph replied offhand "Is that a threat?"
Word is, the Br*ves are taking a look at Franco-stein, as I thought they would. Finally! Atlanta is taking the Mets castoffs. Although, as Matt Franco, Chris Woodward, and others prove, this has happened before.
