The fact that Jay Bruce is tied for the team lead in home runs with 6 and leads the team in RBI’s with 14 is something of a surprise for many Mets fans. Needing to get off to a good start and quiet the talk that he isn’t long for New York, Jay Bruce has let his bat do the talking. Case in point Wednesday night ,Bruce drove in a career-high-tying five runs with a pair of homers, the second a curtain-call-producing two-run shot in the bottom of the eighth that proved decisive, and the Mets ended a four-game losing streak with a 5-4 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies. It’s good to see Bruce hitting and hitting in big moments. Just remember the Mets tried all winter to trade Bruce with no takers. Maybe it was a good thing it didn’t happen can you imagine what kind of mess the Mets would be in if Bruce wasn’t here or wasn’t hitting?. Don’t forget, when he was traded to the Mets at the July 31 deadline he didn’t set the world on fire and Met fans including me was leading the charge to send him else where in the off season. Well we all should be glad at least for now.
