It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Off Base Since 2005! Mets commentary from the counter-intuitive to the unintuitive and all the intuitives in between. ** "Through the use of humor and gross inaccuracy...a certain truth can be gained." Rob Perri ** (pester me or follow me @itsmetsforme on twitter)

Opening Day Mets3 Nats2

Ok I finally got around to watching yesterday's game. So far, not overly impressive, but a win is a win is a win.

Arrgh. This off-day is interminable. The Spankees and the Br*ves both lost, so the day isn't a total loss. The Mets won ugly yesterday and I'm just rarin' to see the 1-4 hitters do sumtin'. Mets defence was just a bit better than the Nats--the mistakes they made didn't cost them, and there were a few pretty plays in there by Wright and Hernandez.

Some observations:

Toothless Tom pitched well enough to lose again, except he WON!
Heilman. Not so sharp.
Hernandez. So far the bunting and fielding skills of Ordonez.
The line-up looks good on paper. Real good.
This team is just one dominant starter, some chemistry, and some average performances from its stars away from being a dream come true.
Brian Bannister is my this year's Mike Jacobs, who incidentally hit a 3 run blast today.
Mets are currently in first place.
