The New York Mets' 4-3, walk-off victory yesterday over the Washington Nationals showed me something. The Mets had no business winning that game. Mike Pelfrey got knocked around, the Mets only got four hits off of starter Edwin Jackson and the hitters were just 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position.
However, these are the types of games that, dare I say, "special" teams tend to win. Even if you don't think they're special, these are absolutely the types of games that the Mets of the last few years wouldn't win. There's something about this team that people are overlooking: they believe.
They believe in themselves, they believe in the team concept and they believe in what Terry Collins is doing. Speaking of TC, I absolutely love the man. I don't think they could've hired someone that was more right for the job.
The Mets are right back in action tonight, and I will be very interested to see how they come out after the big win last night. Let's take a look at the three top stars from that game.
