I think it was earlier today that I mentioned that the Mets’ machine would have to work together again to have any shot at a post-season, and John Maine served as the catalyst that made the engine run. The offense was lit from the very first and handed him a lead and he capitalized with an absolute gem of a game, a one-measly-hit shut out. There were two good old fashioned bench/bullpen clearing scuffles that definitely got the adrenaline pumping and the fans rocking at Shea.
BTW, knowing that they needed to play like it was May again, I wore my #5 spring training jersey for today’s game. Now, I’m a Nationals fan for the evening, but that’s a temporary gig for sure. Sorry Brian… not going down without a fight.
