WELL THAT SURE SET EVERYTHING STRAIGHT
What does matter, and what brings warmth & joy to the cockles of my baseball-lovin' heart is that with pennant-destroying 1B coach Tom Nieto finally off the team, the Mets took some of the finest looking leads off first I've ever seen. I haven't checked the box score, but their Lead Factor (LF) in last night's game had to be at least 6 or 7. Maybe 8 if you factor in the ballpark & that it was an inter-league game.
(Also, even though they recorded no extra-base hits, I'm certain that their Turns Rounding First (TRF) will improve by at least 13 or 14 Turn-Quality Points (TQP), getting them back among the league leaders -- where they usually were before that hideous bum Nieto started fucking everything up.)
It's all gonna be good again.
