We have had a variety of videos throughout this week. We have had everything from great plays, mashups, interesting science, and funny videos. I did a lot of debating on this video and actually, it was not in my original 7 to show you guys. But, when I found it, it was perfect. So here it is, the all-time MLB highlights. It personally gives me chills.
When I say David Wright and good play, most people think of the barehanded play on a slow ground ball. You would be half right to say that. Here is a barehanded play from Wright against the Padres, although the ball was not hit on the ground….
Youtube does not have nearly enough Mets videos to give me one every week so instead of a Video of the Week, I am just going to make a Video week. That will be 7 straight days of funny, or informative Mets videos. First up, an Ike Davis rookie Video. Enjoy.
Mike Pelfrey started and posted a line of 7 innings, 5 hits, 1 run, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts.
Ike Davis hit a go ahead 2 run home run in the 7th inning that just cleared the orange line in center field.
Carlos Beltran went 1 for 3 with an RBI single.
Jason Bay hit a double and struck out twice.
Reyes, Murphy, and Nickeas also had hits tonight.
Wright went o for 2 with 2 walks and a steal.
Izzy pitched a scoreless 8th and K-Rod pitched a scoreless 9th to get the save.
This was a huge start for Mike Pelfrey, after runners were on first and third with nobody out to start the game, he retired the side without a run scoring including a strikeout of Justin Upton. This was also a team that he has never beat, until tonight. He looked so much better tonight than he has all of this year. Hopefully this will stay.
Ike has been such a clutch hitter all year hitting a huge homer to straight away center field. He is leading the Mets in RBI this season.
This lineup looks more confident with Bay in that they feel they can score whenever. Hopefully Bay can show us some power this year.
Izzy has been a force in the ‘pen this year showing that he is not done yet in the majors.
