Video: Team showing Sheff the love

Here’s one of the reasons you gotta love our Mets: They’re a team. An actual team that supports each other and has the next guy’s back and seems to genuinely want its teammates to succeed. Few moments better exemplify that than when the new guy–the big shot new guy–goes yard for the 500th time, and his teammates are there at the finish with huge smiles and bracing hugs. Jose Reyes is there with the first embrace, but David Wright’s is the longest. Looks like Sheffield says something into his ear while they hug. Wish I knew what it was!

Pics still to come from yesterday’s awesome game at Citi. Santana was his usual (consistent! Oh, what a word!) self, and our boys managed to move at least one guy off the base pads and home–even if only because of Milwaukee’s error. Hey, we gave away a couple games with errors, and I’ll take a Santana win however I can get it! I got some good shots of our boys, met up with a couple other bloggers, and I will share soon!




    Seeing a guy hit his 500th homerun is a thrill. I hope we see Carlos Delgado do it later this season.

    I am so glad he finally got to hit that milestone.
    He might not have the best mouth for speaking his mind, but his bat is something spectacular to watch.
    That he can be a great asset to the Mets is great for him and the Met fans.
    Just the sight of that bat wiggle lets you know it is baseball season.

    Heya Zoe. I’m not the biggest Shef fan – in fact, I kinda wish he wasn’t around – but it was great to see the team rally around him like that. Any news on whether Johan’s got a special handshake for him yet?Ash
