I like Ruben in the leadoff spot. I don’t care if he’s not a big base stealer threat.
Brian Joura
Brian Joura
July 3, 2012 – 7:34 pm
He didn’t get on base but nothing wrong with an 11-pitch AB from your leadoff man.

Speaking of catchers, would you rather have nickeas or johnson backing up? I really think the Mets need more RH offense. (Their As-many-righties-as-we-can-stack is rather pathetic)
Chris F

July 3, 2012 – 7:40 pm
Johnson

How much does Power Ball have to get up to before you buy a ticket?
Brian Joura

That was a nice sacrifice by Niese. It can be problematic to do that with a catcher running at first.
Chris F
Chris F
July 3, 2012 – 8:18 pm
Agreed. Bunting has greatly improved from last year. Unfortunately base running has been a bit of a black hole.

ok. basic baserunning 101 is needed during ASB. Nice inning. What about RT? Hes looking “faster” to me. Am I just drinking the juice too much?

funny, i hardly ever even look at outs!
Brian Joura

I don’t think Ruben is fast but I think he’s a smart baserunner.
Brian Joura

A lot like Jason Bay that way.

Maybe the Brewers experience gave him some better perspective?

Glad that inning ended because Gary was digging himself a hole with the run differential thing. Because he can point to the one team to succeed with a -20 run differential in the last 20 years doesn’t mean we should think anyone else could or should do it.
Brian Joura
Brian Joura

Well kids, the first half is drawing to a close. We survived one rough month with a lot of great results. To be +7 on 500 is an excellent position in my opinion. If things go reasonably, we can win 3-4 more in this homestand. Thats a lot of good mojo.

Thanks for chatting with me tonight. We’re going to have one for every game from now on. I won’t be able to make all of them but I’ll post a note when I will be able to be around.
