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!
