Church will be 30 this year, and he is playing better than he's ever played at any stage of his career.
he's bound to come back to earth eventually. he's *not* an "up-and-coming star", regardless of what tom or any mets fans say. at this point, it is safe to say he is a "veteran" player. let the mets fans talk all they want. they'll change their tune when he comes down off of his "I'm not in DC anymore" adrenaline rush.
and that said, he was handed 2 RBIs on a gift-wrapped platter by that dumb-ass Kearns tonight.
