Jerry Is A Dead Manuel Walking

Sure, he may have gotten pulled early, but R.A. Dickey still pitched 5.2 innings of shut-out ball, while striking out 6 and walking none. Had Dickey not injured his leg, this is the stuff that gems are made of peeps.

Please Baseball Gods, don't let this injury be serious!

Dickey came off the mound funny, recorded two more outs and then Jerry lifted him. Dickey wanted to stay in the game, but respected Jerry's decision. Dickey is getting his leg examined tomorrow when the Mets return to New York.

Since the Mets only got four hits today, nobody led the offense. Our bats have frozen. Literally. Well, Castillo had two hits so I guess that's not true; if you could call two hits leading the offense, then that would be it. Jose Reyes and David Wright accounted for the other two hits.

I don't even want to think about the upcoming homestand; I'm going to enjoy tomorrow's off-day for what it is....a day where the Mets won't lose.

Team Record Since Return of Carlos Beltran: 2-9

David Wright Strikeout Counter: $11.10
