New York Mets

Good for you Louie....

ed feverCorrespondent IApril 18, 2009
Louis Castillo had the game winning hit; I'll say this again now that Castillo is looking like the Louie of old we're wasting his skills. His ability to bunt, directional contact hit, speed and patience at the plate are being wasted in the 8th spot. What better way could Louie return to New York then hitting .387 and a walk off hit....
Both Wright and Reyes showed signs of life as Reyes had three hits and Wright was on base four times. Delgado had the best situational hit of anyone on the team in a long time, going to the opposite field for a base hit to start the ninth. Castro's trying to prove me wrong with two hits in his first night as a starter.
The pen continues to be the best in the league as it held the opposition scoreless for four solid innings. As far as Livan goes if you get five innings of one run ball from your fifth starter then he's done his job, the only reason were looking for more from him is because starters 2-4 aren't getting past the fifth. The sixth was predictable and I wish the pen hadn't been used every night to where they felt they had to get another inning from Livan but still four runs from a fifth starter, I'll take it.....
My biggest concern continues to be situational hitting, this team had bases loaded three times and only came away with three runs, even in the ninth inning they almost stranded Delgado after a lead-off double. They just seem to play so tight with runners in scoring position, hopefully tonight's victory is what they needed to loosen them up....
