What more is there to say? The Mets got right down to business with a 2-1 win over the Reds today. And they didn't have to win in their final at-bat. The bullpen showed we can have some faith in them, even if it is minimal. I'm not going to freak out because the Mets left a bunch of runners in scoring position. It's the first day of baseball really being back and it feels great. Daniel Murphy got right to work, hitting the Mets first homer of the season. Ryan Church made the catch of the season (so far, LOL) and David Wright showed why he has won the past 2 Gold Glove awards. Johan had the bullpen behind him and therefore he actually got the win. It was all there.
As far as the other teams I have a rooting interest in... The Indians got beat up by the Rangers. For me, this game is a wash. I would have like it if Cliff Lee had pitched better but Grady did okay and Joe didn't pitch. Ian had a nice day for the Rangers and Josh caught the first pitch from George W. Bush... John Grabow (he's Jewish) got the save for the Pirates. They're over .500 so things are looking good... The Red Sox were postponed, as well as the Royals and White Sox... And the guy who has the show on WFAN right now thinks Grady will win the MVP. I think it's Adam the Bull. YAY!
The Mets have tomorrow off before Mikey P. pitches on Wednesday night. I'll be watching as much as possible during the seder and first night of Passover. I don't want to miss Mikey P!
Let's Go Mets!
