Montero did not properly pitch during his callup this year. In this game, however, he provided more than we expected from him, or even asked of him. Well done, Rafael, but now dude, get it together for ’17.
Jose Reyes sparked the Mets once more. He got banged up, but persevered. We all immediately said, “OP! Reyes is injured. AGAIN.” But he wasn’t, and continued his extremely effective play through the end of the season. Props.
Josh Smoker provided exactly what kind of 10th inning we needed, and left an indelible impression with his personality.
