ICE - Who Would Break It?

While the Mets are off today, there is no time for idleness...they may take a break, but this blogger doesn't.

So, tonight, a good friend of mine pulls a Pat Benatar-like question and asks me,..a Hit Me With Your Best Shot --and this question, literally is....

Bottom 9, runner on 2nd, 2 outs, who would you most want hitting for the Mets?

(he says....NONE)

You know, when firing on all cylinders, I would throw a dart as they are all good. But as this snapshot of time is relevant, I would probably go with Daniel Murphy (patient at the plate) or Fernando Tatis. Ideally, a switch hitter like Beltran would be the ideal one to walk up holding the lumber, but he looks at too many third strikes.

The dynamics of the team need to change...the bugaboo now is the LOB factor cited too many times in this blog and being overheard from the typical Man on the Street.

Let's Go Mets!
