Jose is back? Mets salute former friend with Flag of Victory

I confess that after the Giants series and the number of Mets added to the disabled list this week, I wasn’t sure we’d see the Flag of Victory any time soon.

Things didn’t look good on paper, to be sure. The newly named nemesis from South Florida was making its first pass through town with the shortstop we know and used to love. Their ace hurler was on the mound and our better hitters still looks lost.

Heck, Ike Davis doesn’t look lost, he is lost. 

Shame on me for doubting. Johan Santana threw a gem. Not that he got any run support, mind you. But the Marlins bullpen gave the Mets a run, and Lucas Duda ripped a drive off a Fish pitcher to bring in the go-ahead run.

Frank Francisco remembered what closers are supposed to do, and we can hoist the flag proudly with a 2-1 win.
