A spotless game, wouldn’t you say? And, let’s not devalue it by saying it was only the Nationals. What the Mets did was play the game the way they are supposed to play.
Of course, Mike Pelfrey’s scoreless seven was important and a very positive sign. But, it’s way too soon to say he’s on his way to becoming the next Jim Palmer. What he did do last night, and admitted to after the game, was attack the hitters.
Too many pitchers get caught up trying to finesse and he didn’t do that.
Another positive was Jose Reyes. Of all the Met offensive players, he and Carlos Delgado are the ones I believe need to have big years.
Oh, yeah, another biggie was Duaner Sanchez.
I’m sure you all saw pretty much the same.
