I woke up this morning and my first thought was "I can't wait to watch the Mets today!"
And then I remembered how they've played recently.
The only possible explanation I have for being excited in anticipation of today's game is the possibility of Nick Evans making an appearance. Knowing Willie Randolph, I doubt we'll see even a glimpse of Evans in the game.
Hopefully, if my wish comes true, Evans will be in left field today. I love young players.
Ryan Church will most likely return in right today, probably moving Endy Chavez (still statistically the worst player on the Mets according to VORP) to left field.
Willie, give the kid a chance. Mets, give me a reason to be excited.
