Random Thoughts on Opening Day

  • Don't get down on Mike Jacobs (yet). I still think he provides so much more offense than Murphy does. Maybe cleanup isn't the best place in the order for him, but I (maybe mistakenly) think that he could play a big role on this team this year.
  • Barajas is going to turn out to be a big signing, provided that he plays regularly and Manuel doesn't try to put Blanco in the lineup too often. The pitchers need to throw the same catcher almost every time they pitch. This is something that hasn't happened since Piazza was healthy.
  • It was nice to see Manuel leave Nieve in to pitch 2 innings. It's such a rare thing to see today.
  • Santana was not quite Santana, but he was still good enough to beat every team in the N.L. Bring on Halladay!
  • The Mets WILL be better than has been expected in the East. Don't forget, the record of the Braves and Marlins were a bit inflated last year because they killed a team that was a shell of what the Mets should have been.
