Things may be looking up again for my New York Metropolitans after a brief slump, if you can even call it that. (They’re 16-10, 2nd place in the NL East.)
Both have – not surprisingly – been on a tear this season. Reyes is hitting almost .350 with 28 runs and 17 stolen bases. Maine is 4-0 with a 1.35 ERA and 30 strikeouts.
At this rate, could Maine (gasp) reach 20 wins? He certainly has enough run support, at 7.56 a game, the 8th best in the bigs.
Maybe we should save some of those runs for those late-season games against Florida and Atlanta. But hey, I won’t complain.
