Wow! No contact against a pitcher throwing 88 to 91 mph. In fact we struck out 12 times last night against a Miami staff, Walker contributed 4 big K's. I'd like to think it is the weather but hasn't bothered the opposition.
Pitchers who have our number such as, Teheran and Conley continue to hold our offense.

I froze to death at Citifield last night. Opening Day was great weather and in the daytime. Lord knows why the 1st Saturday of the season was at night. The Mets just aren't hitting right now. Too much talent not to hit. Give them time. Marlins of South Florida looked just fine hitting though.

Even though I'm a met fan I dont hate the yankees since I rooted for them till I was 10 or 11 but never hated them after that.

I'm going to their afternoon game this wed

I guess I picked a good couple of days to be away and not have internet access based on our mets results :)

Being an avid Brooklyn Dodger fan I always disliked the Yankees. But I have to say after trying out for them during the summer months they showed the most class of any other teams I had tryouts with, providing Yankee uniforms and lunch each day. Plus the stadium locker rooms were gems compared to Ebbets Field and the Polo Grounds.

Right now he is swinging at anything and everything. Lost right now. Thank god for Jay Bruce. The guy everyone wanted gone is getting it done. Good for him to silence his critics. At least until the next slump.

Jay Bruce seems like a guy who will hit 25-30 HR's and drive in 90-100 runs. However, he will go through painful streaks where he will strikeout a ton and won't get a hit for two weeks. He will also suffer with his batting average. JB has a very defined back of the baseball card so you can't get too high or too low on him. With all that being said, I was/am shocked that he could not be traded in the offseason. He only has one year left on his contract. If you look around the league and look at what some teams (Detroit, Toronto, Fillies, etc) are putting out on the field it is amazing that Alderson could not find a deal so that he could play Michael Conforto.
