I, just like the Mets, am settling into my new place.
I must say, this is a strange room. Hopefully the Mets feel a little more comfortable in first place.
Pedro Martinez faces off against old friend, and one of the best things to ever happen to the Mets, Mike Hampton. When Hampton left the Mets, he provided his greatest service to the club than he ever could in their uniform.
Using the compensated pick after Hampton dashed for more money elsewhere, the Mets drafted and signed one Mr. David Wright.
If the Mets can sweep the lowly Braves tonight, and maybe the Nationals could finally win a game, the Mets will be sitting pretty 2.5 games up in first.
Just a thought: Do the Mets have the best starting rotation is baseball?
I know the Angels have a stacked starting-five, but the way this team has been pitching, including the 10 scoreless innings from John Maine, has been superb lately. As a fan, you can't ask for much more than what they've done.
Maybe more innings out of Maine, and less solo home runs from Pedro, but I'm really searching for things to fault them on.
