Mets Win Replay For Another Shocking Victory In Fenway

Omir Santos pounded a shocking two-run blast with two out in the 9th inning and the Mets down by a run over the red line near the top of the Green Monster after the usually-perfect Papelbon had blown away Wright and Reed with heat.

Simply Stunning

A two-run, Fenway-silencing homerun off a 97 mph fastball that took the idiot ump a good five minutes to confirm was in fact a homer, plenty of time to wonder how what in the hell J J Putz was doing warming up in the bullpen instead of Frankie Boy to save what was in essence a mouth-dropping shocking game ? Well sadly, Frankie Boy had back spasms so severe he had to be stretchered to the hospital and was unable to pitch but still - Putz?

Why not Parnell, who has been nothing short of fantastic? Why a guy who's coming off a stick neck, a series of shite outings?

And although Wright made a nice play in the bottom of the 9th off what looked like might be a game-tying double, he nearly threw the ball away into the outfield instead of second base and it was only a superb save by Castillo that prevented it.

And what the hell do you know - whipping boy Ramon Martinez came up with a superb back-handed grab and throw to first to end the game. As quickly as their winning streak fell to shite and the Mets' Little League fielding appeared to spell their doom, one of the main fielding goats in essence, saves the game for Putz and before what has happened can even register, the Mets have their second game in a row off the Red Sox in Fenway. Unbelievable.

Before the 9th, this game appeared to have been decided in the 1st inning.

Other than that difficult first inning when he gave up the only two runs he would surrender all night and needed 34 valuable pitches to escape, Big Pelf pitched a superb game through seven innings.

But in the first, Josh Beckett was just slightly better and that made the difference as both pitchers settled down thereafter to throw goose eggs over the next 6 innings.

So it came down to the Red Sox closer and Omir Santos in the top of the 9th.

Minutes after seeing it, I'm still stunned as you can imagine the Mets are as well, disbelieving of their good fortune over the last two nights.

Jerry made a few questionable moves he's sure to justify in the post-victory locker room but had the Mets lost this game (can you imagine, Putz blowing it in the bottom of the 9th?! Of course you can, it nearly happened...)

One nice thing out of Delgado's hip surgery is that the Mets may have solved The Magical Murph's left field yips AND found Delgado's heir who looks like he shape up to be a slightly shorter verson of John Olerud. Given Murph's absence of power however in the future, the Mets are going to need another dangerous bat in one of the corner outfield positions to compensate for Delgado's loss.

But that's another day's worries.

For one day anyway, the Mets are a team to be proud of.

Those defensive plays are fairy dust. That might never happen again. What you take out of the game is Pelf's performance and his 6 K's. What you also take out of it is KRod's back spasms, a really scary thought.

Well didn't half of Pelf's Ks come against Ortiz? does that really count?
