Mets Win; Thor Doesn’t Blow

Mets 12, Rockies 3

The only thing I really have to complain about is that MetsBlow is becoming difficult to write.

Thor started out blowing, but righted the ship. Great to see. Young dude without his best stuff, still battling, still managing to get by, and still learning. D-Wright taking his ham sandwich was the best move ever.

Ron Darling referred to Yoenis Cespedes as an “uh-oh hitter” which is basically saying that he’s an impact bat. Darling said that when he pitched, and there was an uh-oh hitter in the lineup, it messed with his concentration. A guy that can hit any pitch in any direction with pop. A guy that scares you. A guy that, even when making an out, makes you sweat. A guy that makes the whole lineup better by proxy and assimilation.

Everyone contributed today. Special day. Special sweep. Special team.

This weekend, the Pirates come to town. Another test, and we’ll have our back-end of the rotation going, but so will they. They’ll miss deGrom and Thor (and Matz due to injury). We’ll miss Cole and Liriano (and Burnett due to injury). We’ll still get Harvey going on Sunday. Let’s see Niese and Colon go to work.
