Five home runs are great, but I have a feeling the Mets would have preferred another two innings from Steve Trachsel instead. Ideally 10-6 isn’t the score the Mets desire.
Willie Randolph said Trachsel made pitches when he had to, which is manager-speak for saying he made a lot pitches that weren’t that good. Six walks doesn’t cut it and Trachsel was the first one to admit it. “That will keep me up tonight,” he said.
Carlos Beltran has 17 home runs, one more than he hit all of last year. Thirty is within reach. … He had a four-hit game tonight and is playing the way a star is supposed to play. Quick question: Anybody out there want to admit they booed Beltran on Opening Day.
Don’t forget about Carlos Delgado. He has a tendency to hit them in bunches. He hit two tonight and one last Monday.
