I Less Than 3 Daniel Murphy
If you don't understand the title this should help, I <3 Daniel Murphy
He has been added to my long list of players that I consider hot. He hit his first major league home run last night and Mike Jacobs didn't throw the ball into the stands. I guess he likes Daniel more than he likes Brian Stokes.
Brian Stokes got a hit in his first Major League at bat and the ball was going to go back to the Mets' dugout so Brian could keep it. When Mike Jacobs attempted to throw the ball to the dugout it went over the dugout and into the stands. Carlos Delgado gave a different baseball to the kid with the Brian Stokes baseball and everything worked out in the end.
But the Mets got good pitching from Brian and he kept them in the game. The bullpen held the lead for the second night in a row. Even though Smitty was charged with 2 runs Feliciano and Sanchez and Heilman got the outs that were needed.
The Marlins have absolutly OWNED Mike Pelfrey so we will just see what happens today and the Mets win the series no matter what.
Let's Go Mets!
*Mike Nickeas went 0-for-4 with 3 strikeouts last night and he is batting .217 in AAA. He did call a good game behind the plate as the Zephyrs won the game 3-2.
*Xavier Nady hit another homer for the Yankees even though they lost as the bullpen imploded in the 8th inning. There is a good article about X-man here. And I will continue to put Xavier links in yellow even though he is no longer a Pirate.
*I like this story about Eddie Kunz.
