First up is Pedro Feliciano. I dont know how this guy’s arm has not fallen off yet and i mean literally fall off like a lego piece. Pedro is tied for the Major League Lead with Peter Moylan for 58 GP and is still sporting a very cool 2.51 Era. Pedro turned out to be the winning pitcher tonight as he gave the Mets a solid 1.2 IP and apparently the only Met bullpen member of late that remembers how to throw a strike. Pedro has faced a few more RH batters of late and is bringing down that BA that currently stands a .264 versus them. While Pedro has been an anchor in the Mets bullpen im sure he is looking at every New York newspaper to check on the progress of Billy Wagner. Great game Pedro.
Last up is Angel Pagan. Angel feasted on a pitch high and over the plate to hit his first career grand slam. This was Angel’s first home run since July 15 2007…talk about being due. With the news that Jose Reyes had yet another setback,Â Angel looks like he will be maning the leadoff spot for the immediate future. Angel in the leadoff spot has a line of .318AVG/.351OBP/.856OPS/11RBI/1HR. Im sure Reyes can take his time coming back. Great job Angel.
Jeff Francoeur gets yet another RBI giving him 53 for the year and 18th as a Met
Alex Cora for his multi-hit performance going 2-3
Oliver Perez who sometimes looks better with a bat than a ball for his hit and his .333avg! (in 15 AB’s)
Cory Sullivan and Brian Schneider for also contributing with RBI’s
