Gotay Taking Full Advantage

Anthony Di Como at Mets.com writes about Ruben Gotay and how he has taken full advantage of the playing time he's getting:

Ruben Gotay, trying to shake the knock that he's not cut out to be an everyday player, has caught fire playing every day in lieu of Valentin. Six hits in 13 at-bats since the All-Star break have boosted Gotay's average to .353 and made it awfully hard for manager Willie Randolph to play anyone else.

"The way we've been struggling offensively the last six weeks, that's an easy one," Randolph said. "We're going to obviously put guys out there to help you win ballgames."
