For Whom The Bell Tolls

Well, that was nice.

Former Met and current fat fuck Heath Bell walked four of the first five hitters he faced today (including a 13-pitch at bat to Justin Turner) before motherfucking stud Kirk Nieuwenhuis lined a game-winning RBI single to lead the Mets to a 3-2 win and series sweep over the Florida Miami Marlins.

On a side note, this was the Mets first homegrown lineup in 41 years. Completely homegrown from Nieuwenhuis to Niese. It's nice to get someone like Beltran or Santana but this is why I don't need megadeals for Bay or K-Rod. Let's see what the kids can do.

Especially Nieuwenhuis. He set the tone robbing Reyes of a triple in the first game and won today’s game with the walk off hit. Fuck Andres Torres, there's no reason why that CF job shouldn't be Kirk's for the rest of the year.

Niese keeps rolling along. 7 IP, 4 hits, 2 runs, 0 walks, 6 Ks.  Solid.

Sweeps in April don't mean much but it's always nice to beat the Marlins. 

Game 19: Mets 3, Marlins 2

Mets 2012 record: 11-8


  1. At least we got to use "Nieu-WIN-huis" and "Nieu-WIN-hits" on Twitter. I was hoping Josh Thole could get the walk-off hit so we could have used "For Whom The Bell Tholes".

  2. And don't forget his Nieuwen-HEIST of Reyes...
