It was good to the see “The Animal” Chris Carter have a big night last night in Pittsburgh hitting in the cleanup spot. He was 2 for 4 with a home run and 2 RBI’s. He reminds me a lot of “Super” Joe McEwing. They’re those guys that you don’t necessarily want to see in the lineup everyday, but when they play they make things happen. And they’re easy to like and root for.
I’ll be shocked if Carter isn’t batting cleanup again tonight after the Mets 7 run outburst last night. Jerry Manuel might have finally found the right mix to score some runs. Too bad it took 122 games into the season to find it.
Here’s some post-game video from Carter last night in Pittsburgh:
