THIS POST IS SORT OF RELATED TO METAL BUT MOSTLY RELATED TO BASEBALL
Baseball season starts on Monday!!
Ah, April, when every team is entitled to optimism, unencumbered by haplessness, injuries or a blown save faster than you can say “Armando Benitez.” In the case of our Mets, we can be a little optimistic… right? We’ve basically got the same team as last year; the same team that hung around towards the top of the standings until fucking everybody got injured by June. Sure, our starting pitching beyond Johan Santana is suspect, and it’ll definitely hurt to not have Beltran with us until mid-May earliest. But we’ve definitely got a shot of staying in it. Jason Bay will be a great addition. Wright will surely improve his production numbers. Hopefully Reyes can stay healthy. Maybe we’ll even get to see some action from prospects like Ike Davis, Jenry Mejia and Fernando Martinez, who very well may represent the future of the franchise.
It’s only April. Things aren’t all bad… yet.
