Valdespin Shows The Heart Of The Mets

Jordany Valdespin's grand slam in the 10th was the type of home run that could propel a team for weeks to come. So far the Met's have been hanging around .500, while suffering the same inconsistencies that plagued them last year. The core of their lineup has been pretty good, with John Buck already having a career year it seems. They were just in need of a spark, and I believe Jordany needs to continue to be this guy. He could be that top of the lineup guy that they have missed since Jose Reyes left. He has been clutch in pinch hit situations, but I think he is a guy that should be playing every day. After what he did lasyt night I expect Terry Collins to ride this hot hand for the next few games at least. Side note, Matt Harvey pitched pretty well and continues to strike out hitters at a awesome rate.
