R.A. & The Animal Roars

R.A. Dickey improved to 4-0 on the year and Chris “The Animal” Carter hit his first home run of his major league career as the Mets won 5-1 tonight.

Carter connected in the fourth after Ike Davis singled and Bay drew a walk.


Dickey had the knuckler working once again, striking out a career high 8 batters.  Dickey came up especially big in the fourth, managing to pull out of a very tight situation. The Orioles loaded the bases with no outs before Dickey struck out Luke Scott and  Adam Jones, then retired Matt Wieters on a popup.

You gotta love guys like Chris Carter and R.A. Dickey basically reclamation projects, their former teams had given up on them, and here they are ready and contributing. Everything I’ve heard about Carter is that he’s one of the hardest working guys on the team and is constantly fired up, the Mets haven’t had a guy like Carter on the team in a while. I like it.

Unbelievably, Mets will try win two consecutive games on the road for the first time this year, tomorrow.

    Dickey looked good once again last night. (ok that sounds wierd). Some of the more impressive things that I noticed about Dickey’s play is that he doesn’t lose composure and stays strong, even with runners on.

    Also he has made some great defensive plays. Diving catches, plays on combackers, little nubbers, etc.

    I don’t think that the Sox gave up on Carter. I think that they just had no where to put him since they had a very good, and crowded OF the past few yrs, as well as a DH that they can’t put anywhere else, and an all star caliber first baseman. the Sox had no room for Carter. Red Sox fans were very high on Carter though, and he seemed to get good reviews by them. A decent trade by Omar since the Mets received an MLB ready player, and a prospect for Wagner. The Mets could have held out and let another team sign Wagner in the off-season and received a comp draft pick, but I think that they did a great job in getting a player that was ready to contribute off of the bench.
