Game 9: Pitcher & Position Player of The Game

Buck gets into elite company while Hefner’s performance won’t get him any bunnies! It’s time for the KinersKorner Pitcher and Position Player of the Game.

Game 9: Josh Edgin

Everyday Edgin hopefully won’t burn out like Perpetual Pedro eventually did, but his two inning outing served two purposes: It kept the Mets within striking distance after Hefner’s five run outing, and it proved he doesn’t have to be JUST  a situational lefty. Now if Warthen and Collins can just let pitchers work full innings maybe they won’t get gassed so quickly.

Game 9: John Buck

Another day, another Home Run from the Mets catcher. It’s something we have not said for several seasons but still seems very natural considering the history at the position. (Mets are a funny franchise. They have so many great catchers but so few great right fielders in their history. Most franchises have the opposite.)

When you’re in the same breath offensively with Straw and Kingman (ok, and Jeff Kent wasn’t a complete slouch either as a Met, but pretty close), you’re doing pretty well.
