There Now, Was That So Hard?
So last night, we Mets fans were treated (yes, treated) to a lovely win over the not-so-lovely-but-fairly-lowly Nationals. That makes two in a row, for those who suffer from counting deficiencies. Which considering some Mets fans find it acceptable behavior to boo players on opening day, before one pitch has even been thrown, and to further boo Johan Santana, who wasn't even here last year, his only rather tenuous connection to The Collapse being that he played major league ball, is probably a good bet. That you have counting deficiencies, that is, case I lost you there, which is also a really really good possibility, considering.
Maine didn't look great, but he pitched well enough, and Shirley Carlos popped his first cherry - his first home run of the year. Now that he's got the cherry, perhaps the entire sundae will follow.
My fellow contributor, DingoMets, will follow later with his GBU analysis of the game, so I don't want to ruin it for him by saying more.
And don't look now, but it's time to bring out the broom brigade!
