Bay & Beltran End The Slam Drought
- Updated: June 29, 2011
PRAISE THE LORD THE DROUGHT IS OVER!! I couldn’t believe Jason Bay of all people would be the one to do it – but these are the Mets so I guess it makes sense. The real improbable event was having Carlos Beltran hit his own slam an inning later! Last night was simply remarkable and it felt great to be a Mets fan last night.
Watching the Mets have this offensive onslaught is just phenomenal. It couldn’t have come at a better time as well being they need to start putting some space between them and the .500 mark. I don’t want the Mets to be a .500 team, I want them to gain a little more respect and play the part of spoiler if we can’t grab the wild card this year.
I’m rooting for our boys tonight to win the series because Verlander is just too nasty. I’m also looking forward to this Subway Series being we seem to be firing on all cylinders now and actually have a shot of going into the all-star break a few games above .500. LET’S GO METS!
By the way, you can view both grand slams below. Enjoy!
