Welcome back Victor Diaz. Think the right fielder wanted to make a statement in his first game since being recalled to take Mike Cameron's spot on the roster? Two home runs and going 3 for 4 will make people take notice. Alas, the usually reliable Aaron Heilman let Victor Zambrano down in the bottom of the 7th and a catcher (Dionne Navarro, Dave Navarro, something like that) who had yet to drive in a run homered off Braden Looper in the 10th to win the game.
I missed that home run as I was outside Magnetic Field--one of my favorite Brooklyn haunts, which has "Mets Beer" on tap--on the phone. One guy was walking out as I was on the phone and said to me,"You the Mets fan?" I shook my head yes, and then he said, "You're not going to like what's on the TV now." Gee, thanks dude.
