Damn, it's been a long time coming. Jose Reyes will finally be back in the lineup. Awesome news. He is probably going to be rusty, which is fine, but with Zeile slumping a bit, we won't really be hurt by it that much. Hopefully he provides that spark that we all know he can provide.
Friday night, which was Mike Piazza night, was definitely a great night. I thought the ceremony was good. Originally I thought it would be lackluster, but it was done well and tasteful. On the screen in the outfield, they showed a ton of Piazza's bombs which is always great to watch. The funniest part was the big boo Jeff Wilpon got. Absolutely classic. Glavine was on the hill last night and pitched a great game last night. He went seven innings and surrendered only two runs, but the run in the first innings only came due the inability to complete a double play. Since you cannot give errors on missed double plays, he got screwed. Tom also showed why he is such a complete pitcher. As if it is not enough to pitch lights out, he also got two RBIs, which tied the game up. He is just the complete package.
I was sweating a little bit. It was starting to look like we were going to lose on Mike Piazza night with the lack of offense supplied the Mets bats, but thanks to Cameron's ninth inning blast, everyone went home happy. Cameron went 2 for 4 with no strike outs. He is starting to heat up and looking much better at the plate.
I'm smelling sweep.
Kazmir goes tonight for the St. Lucie squad.
Erickson goes tonight for Norfolk, which should hopefully be his last game pitched in the Met organization.
