The Mets are 9-9 and this is the first time they’ve been at .500 since April 5, when they were 1-1. They’re 6-1 on this 10-game homestand, and they’re doing it without David Wright. He’s not on the DL or anything, he’s just not hitting. At all. The big news is that Jason Bay went 3-for-4 against the Braves on Saturday and yes, I did get to see him get those hits. Box is here.
How did I see him get those hits? With my Roku, which is finally accepting MLB.tv. Before the season started, they promised us baseball for Opening Day. Then they promised “mid-April.” Then it was “late April.” The natives were getting very restless over at MLB.com and Roku.com’s support fora. But anyone who put money on “late April” won the bet. The interface is a little cumbersome and takes some getting used to, but it works and it works well. It’s so nice to be able to watch games on the TV instead of on the laptop. Two thumbs up for Roku.
