I don’t care. I’m going to enjoy it. I’m going to throw out ridiculous information because it’s fun to look at projections of Lucas Duda hitting 120 home runs.
While three games is just three games, it’s still a lot more meaningful than Spring Training data. Frank Francisco nailed down three saves. The bullpen pitched well. Lucas Duda really does look like he can hit. Ruben Tejada’s looking good. The Mets are in first place. Even Jason Bay has an RBI, and leads the league in sacrifice flies.
Just enjoy it. Things will probably shake out differently the rest of the season. I doubt the Mets go 162-0. Still, I think as people see this team play they’re realizing that they actually do have talented players on it. Enjoy the ride. Is there something from this weekends games that opened your eyes involving this Mets team?
David Wright is on pace to … I don’t even want to say it. I’m afraid I’ll jinx it. There is a certain batter outcome that happens at the plate, and it’s one that’s been very prevalent in Wright’s game the past couple of years. Ryan Howard and Adam Dunn are experts at it. Wright hasn’t done it this year. He didn’t do it in Spring Training either. Keith Hernandez is practically drooling over his batting stance so far this season. We all know what David’s capable of. This is my biggest point of optimism this weekend.
