Andres Torres, take your time

Any remember Andres Torres? 

He was the Opening Day center fielder for about six innings before gimping off the field.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis is doing his best to make sure that when Torres returns, possibly on this road trip, he enjoys the view of the game from the bench.

Kirk led off Thursday’s series finale against the Marlins with a triple – passing Jose Reyes on his way to third – and scored on a sac fly.

Things looked grim in the bottom of the ninth with the Mets down 2-1 and expensive Marlins closer Heath Bell on the hill. But the Mets loaded the bases, and Justin Turner battled Bell for 14 pitches, earning a walk to force home the tying run.

The brought up Nieuwenhuis, who smacked a game-winning RBI single to broom out the Marlins for the Mets’ second sweep of a division rival so far this season.

Hey, Andres. Take your time. We're letting Kirk hoist the Flag of Victory again.

I'm pretty sure Andres Torres will just push Kirk Nieuwenhuis over to left when he comes back... and by the time Jason Bay's rib heals, Torres will probably be back on the DL if his first two months as a Met are any indication. :)
