Picking up where they left off in the Marlins series...

I have trouble evaluating a guy like D'arnaud who's suddenly come to life in junktime. Did he actually find something this month, or is he just hitting now that the pressure's off? With Reyes we KNOW what the answer is to that...

On the contrary, suddenly the pressure is on him now that Plaw looks like a real ML catcher.

What if d'Arnaud is the next guy to turn into a permanent monster over night?

Mets have to dump him before it happens.

At least he's not doing it halfway through his walk year.

That didn't prod him earlier in the year when Rene Rivera was actually hitting like someone other than Rene Rivera and he was already losing PT. If anything it's more possible both guys DID actually take the management vote of confidence to heart.

There's really no comparing the two. Rene was never going to be a real threat to TDA the way Plaw is.

In any case, there is some non-zero chance that the Mets actually will have a productive catching tandem next year.

Jeurys on for the save. Love that.

TdA finally found a dang swing and stance to work with now....slight opened, no dramatic bat wrap and the most important thing...a nice big leg kick before the swing...suddenly he’s mashing the ball.

Nope. Mets finally listen to our man Sergio on Sept 5 both giving TDA boost of confidence (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseb ... -1.3475209) and moving him into 4/5 in the order.

The rest is history, albeit a limited one. Coincidence? Could be but it coincided exactly, to the day, with Sandy's statement.

“It’s a big compliment for the both of us,” d’Arnaud said of Alderson’s comments.

P.S There's a reasonable chance that TDA will be the player who will most benefit from a new manager.

Nice to see signs of the old Familia tonight. I was ready to call this one another victory for the Tank when Smoker was called in.

Reds lost, they now sit on #5. Braves won, so there's some room between our Mets and #7.
