Who’s gonna let a little 7-run deficit to the Phillies slow them down? Not the 2011 Mets, who showed plenty of fight in battling back last night, even if they didn’t win…
Meanwhile Ike Davis has quietly gotten off to a nice start in his sophomore campaign. He’s got that average at ,368 and perhaps more importantly, has shown the ability to get hits with men on base, shortening his swing a little when an RBI single is all the team needs.
Whether Terry Collins actually threw a few chairs around the clubhouse or if its just a change for the sake of change at the helm doesn’t matter. What matter is the results, and until the season-opening bubble pops the Mets look nothing like the entitled whiners that took the field last year.
