John Maine has given up one hit in five scoreless innings so far. Even though he pitched well last year, it was still only over 15 starts. GM Omar Minaya said one of the things he wanted to see was Maine pitch well, which would validate what he did last season.
So far, he’s done that.
-Carlos Beltran’s two-run homer is the first of the year by the Mets.
-Shawn Green has two hits, including a RBI single. I thought he might sit against lefthander Mark Redman on Friday, but with two hits Willie Randolph might stick with him and hope he gets into that groove.
