If you put together a list of surprise Mets from the first half, “Jorge Sosa”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=6885 would have to be close to the top of the list. Sosa stabilized the staff when Mike Pelfrey was optioned to the minor leagues.
Sosa, 2-1 with a 3.03 ERA lifetime against the Phillies, starts today against J.A. Happ, who is making his major league debut.
Without those six wins, where might the Mets be?
