- He didn't even put it in third gear until halfway between first and second bases.
- Earlier this season, it took Prince Fielder a shade over thirteen seconds to leg out a triple!
(Not Darren Lewis and Will Clark.)
Not only did that Reyes inside the parker knock Brad Penny out of the game, it prompted Alyssa Milano to dump him. That would make Reyes' swing like the "Butterfly Effect" or something like that.
This win over the Dodgers, and all wins over the Dodgers this weekend help to knock them out of first place in the western division of la liga Nacional...and perhaps it will set up a meeting with these same Dodgers in the first round of the playoffs. But think about this: the Mets could sweep the Dodgers this weekend, play them in round one of the playoffs, and yet still people would come out with the "ooh you don't want to face the Dodgers in the first round of the playoffs...ooooh!"
At least after tonight, I don't think there's a real desire on the Dodgers' part to face the Mets.
They have to worry about scoring first, which nobody has been able to do to the Mets in 25 innings. Tom Glavine was responsible for six and a third of those scoreless innings tonight and considering the state/health of the starting rotation, you might have seen the most important six and a third innings that you will see in September...at least until Pedro Martinez makes his return.
And that will be the best theatre available until October.
