I could have gone for the Jordany Valdespin Grand Slam against the Los Angeles Dodgers, which was awesome, but the fact he's such a douche, and all that's come to light with him getting suspended 'cause of the PEDs and ranting and raving at everybody on his way down to AAA, I just can't use it as the last walk-off of the week, no matter how awesome it was. Maybe he'll redeem himself one day and finally be humbled into not buying the JV1 hype of his own creation, but for now, that day has yet to come.
Instead, the man who is a legend in Queens and who is now on the Dodgers roster gets my last walk-off spot of the week.
ACTUALLY....since at the time the 1st highlight I was gonna use was his 2nd walk-off in 3 days, let's round it out with both of those walk-offs.
Let's start backwards, with the 1st walk-off I was gonna use.
Then we go back a couple days from that, when all that stopped Matt Harvey from throwing a Perfect Game was a dribbler by Alex Rios to Ruben Tejada.
And...ya know. The Mets' offensive ineptitude considering the hit below gave them a 1-0 win.
WHATEVER!!! BASK IN THE GLORY OF THE MIKE BAXTER WALK-OFFS!!!!
LET'S. GO. METS.
