RA Dickey had a good start and the pen once again held down Atlanta's bats. Lucas Duda went 2-4 with 2 solo homers and David Wright went 3-5 with a solo bomb of his own. Kirk Nieuwenhuis got 2 hits in his debut and Josh Thole also kept his hot bat going. The Blob was most impressed with Bobby Parnell who is starting to finally look like a pitcher relying more on location and smarts than brut speed. 2 & 0 to start the year! Enjoy it while it last Blobbers!

Baller turned author RA Dickey takes the hill for NY in the second game of the 2012 season. The Blob has yet to read Dickey's book "Wherever I Wind Up" but from all I hear it's a compelling underdog tale that makes the Mets perfect underdog home for Dickey to finally find success.This could be fun. Nieuwenhuis lost time himself to an injury this spring. Now he's on his way to the Mets to fill the Torres injury void. As for the void that is Jason Bay...the Blob welcomes any of young studs to the show to make Back Bacon Bay ride the pine.
