In this article if you scroll down to the part about the Candyman you will see this:
A large, open box of candy always sits on the floor next to Xavier Nady's locker in the clubhouse at PNC Park. Are Skittles the secret of Nady's success at the plate this season?
"No," Nady said, laughing. "I'm just the guy who brings in all the candy for everyone. I mix it up every week."
Xavier truly seems to be a favorite in that clubhouse and I am very happy about that! The Pirates won last night so that was good, especially because they beat the Braves.Grady hit 2 homers yesterday and that helped Cleveland beat Toronto. Alex Gordon went 1-for-5 in Royals' loss to the Orioles. Mike Nickeas didn't play because Gustavo Molina is getting all of the playing time. UGH!
The Mets won 1/2 of the games they played yesterday and in the night game Mike Pelfrey only gave up 2 runs and he kept the Mets in the game. He also pitched without his mouth guard. I know I said I would have a post about the games but I am too lazy for that. Johan pitched well in the first game even though he gave up ten hits. You can do that when your team scores 12 runs in the game. The Mets kept getting hits with runners on during the first game, with David looking like he was finally getting out of his slump, and in the second game they could barely get hits. Oh well, the Mets will win the game today for their moms!
Let's Go Mets!
Happy Mother's Day!
