What I love about Wilmer Flores is how much of a veteran he already looks with the bat. He's been playing professional baseball for about 6 or 7 years now, and has made it to the Big Leagues with quite the first week. I want all of us to watch video together on here. But they won't let us embed any and I am too lazy to grab the link.
Juan Lagares and Wilmer Flores both know how to hit, and while the latter might need to adjust back once the league adjusts to him, it is clear they have natural talent at the plate. Flores handles his own in the field, but Juan Lagares has been the best defensive center fielder in baseball since coming up. It's nice when players you know have so much talent translate relatively quickly to the Major League level. We'll see how much they keep performing, but I have a lot of faith they will continue to succeed.
Now, the Mets are finally, on August 12th, starting the SoCal stretch, and they once again showed against the Diamondbacks how that they know how to bounce back after a devastating loss (though they need to stop losing devastatingly and just turn this good stretch of baseball playing into 15-game winning streaks.)
I've been talking a lot about the Brooklyn Dodgers lately, currently working on a 2nd draft of a pilot for my show, and now our Metsies take on the team that helped give birth to them in the town that team headed off to. The Dodgers are the hottest team in baseball, but the Mets won't take on Kershaw or Grienke. And they throw Mejia, Harvey and Gee against them.
We'll see how it goes.
Enjoy the game, everyone.
