|Not such a hot start.|
METS 2 MARLINS 6
1 down & 161 to go! Mike Pelfrey could not cook up any put away pitches, he walked 4 batters, and he gave up a 4th inning grand slam to Marlin catcher John Buck. The Mets didn't do much at the plate as Josh Johnson no hit them for 6 innings. Willie Harris broke up the no hitter with a hard double to left center in the 7th-the first of his 2 hits. Carlos Beltran then knocked in Harris with a double of his own smoked down the right field line. Beyond that, the Mets were no shows on offense, seemed flat and sloppy early on, and simply didn't get it done. I guess the team didn't read Terry Collins' open letter to us fans. Maybe the players didn't think it was for them since in fairness, it was addressed to the fans. The good news is the Mets often win on opening day and then have a bad season. Maybe sucking in the first game is really setting us up for a post season run? Genius Terry! Genius!
PS- Terry, please stop writing me open letters. I don't know you, you're much older than I, you are not my type, and I find the whole thing creepy.
Marlins score in a school on Buck's grand slam.
The numbers don't lie. We really wish they did.
