So, the Mets are in position where they need Phil Humber to carry them. Phil Humber, a guy who has never started a game in the major leagues, gets the ball in a pennant race tonight.
“It’s exciting, man,” Humber said. “It’s what you work for your whole career. … I feel like I thrive on that kind of stage. We’ll see what happens.”
Yeah, my feelings exactly.
Humber says he’s prepared, but how much can he really be considering he’s thrown just three innings in two relief outings since he was called up Sept. 1 from Triple-A New Orleans?
I can’t believe in all this time they couldn’t have found more than three innings. I can’t believe it has come down to this.
