Wrapping it Up Well

It's unbelievable how much the Mets have forced the opposition into making mistakes lately. They have been playing some great baseball over the last month and a half or so, much in part to the errors their foes have made.

All weekend, the struggling Milwaukee team kicked and bobbled the ball around, and though the Mets turned it into a 12-5 romp on Friday night, they eeked out a 2-1 win thanks to the continuing brilliant pitching of Jeremy Hefner, a couple mistakes that lead to a couple runs, and a 4-out save by Mr. Bobby Parnell.

The most impressive part is of course Mr. Hefner. I had a feeling he was better than we were giving him credit for as he fought for a spot in Spring Training, and with a few tweaks here and there, he has turned himself into not only a serviceable Major League pitcher but a quality one at that. It might not exactly be flashy, but it's becoming quite fun watching the guy work through an order.

We're heading into San Francisco for a 3-game set out there. No matter how much the "New York Giants of San Francisco" may be struggling currently, the Mets and their predecessors always seem to play crazy games that excite us, frustrate us, and scare us all at the same time. Let's not even think about how our fanaticism might keep us up WAAAAAY TOOOOOOO LATE into the early eastern seaboard morning.

Settlin' into the Mondays, everyone.

(Cliche, I know, but screw it. I hadn't heard it in a while)
