    Dude! How do you not mention Nick Evans' first base-hit and RBI of the season?

      LOL you're kidding me right? Nick Evans? LOL

      • FormerDirtDart says:

        Just saying he at least garnered an "Additional Comment:" mention.
        Good lord, not like I'm suggesting a "Key Moment" or "Game Ball".
        And, that third run he pushed across in the 9th was great insurance, and not doubt took the last bit of wind out of the Giants sails.

        Do not mistake me someone who thinks Evans has any real future above AAA baseball

          LOL I'm just messing with you dude… I see you're point (I always do) and I'm glad you're not a "why doesn't Nick Evans get a shot" kinda guy. Cause there are plenty of those out there in Mets land. IMO I think the game was over after the Hairston HR. He hit that off the Giants mighty closer, Wilson and I think that was the knock out punch. The two extra runs def gave us some breathing room, but I think the Giants were stunned after the HR.

          • FormerDirtDart says:

            Oh yeah, Hariston's HR was a definite kick to the 'nads for the Giants. I always see two runs as doable, theee-four hits(or throw in a BB) and you're there. But, three runs, you're looking for a ball out of the yard to get that back.

            I can't see what some people see in Evans. He can't hit major league right-handers. And, he strikes-out over 25% of the time, and it your name ain't "David Wright" that just doesn't cut it…lol
            He'll have a decent minor league career, with the occasional trip up in a temporary bench role, but eventually his contracts will get low enough where he won't clear waivers as easily.
