Take heart, Mets fans: Perez can throw. I’ve seen both Perez and Maine in Norfolk, and of the two, I would choose Perez in a must win. Maine has a little more maturity, and is probably the better pitcher, but if Perez is on he can be absolutely unhittable. Lights out stuff. And if he’s not, you’ve got the entire Mets staff, which has been over the course of the season one of the best in the National League, to step in.
Anyone who has followed the Mets all season long knows they go hot and cold hitting. Remember that slump against Boston in June? The post season numbers indicate only one thing: the Mets are way overdue due for a hot streak. And as anyone who has followed the Mets all season long knows, when they do get hot they can be devastating.
If the bats come out tonight, the Mets can not only win tonight, I Gotta Believe they can not only subdue the Cardinals, they can tame the Tigers.
Be sure and visit Some Ballyard!
