It seems that when Jon Niese gives up runs, he never gives up a big bomb. Whatever team faces him, they will string together a bunch of singles, and hanging another zero has gotten away. If the Mets had continued attacking Kyle Kendrick, maybe Jon doesn't feel he has to be too fine. Still, I appreciate the strides Niese has made this summer, and this coming from someone who was really hard on him recently. He needs to finish the season healthy, however, for me to feel better about the guy going into 2013.
Josh Thole was not the only reason we lost yesterday. And I'm not saying Kelly Shoppach is the greatest catcher of all time. But right now, there is clearly a vast difference between the way Thole plays the game and the way Shoppach plays the game.
Looking forward to RA's 17th win tonight.

LET'S. GO. METS.
