Tony Armas will become the eighth starter for the Mets this season. He was 5-7 at Triple-A New Orleans, so excuse me if I don’t register high on the excitement meter.
I picked the Mets to get into the playoffs at the start of the season, and they are 3 1/2 games back now. I’m not going to back off that now. However, I didn’t expect them to be so erratic.
Based on the pitching matchups, I would think they’ll get waxed tonight. Then again, that’s what a reverse lock is all about.
