the offense exploded by scoring 8 runs,partially because of the multiple homeruns hit
by Barajas and Francouer.But to me that wasn't the most impressive thing about the
game.The most impressive thing was that Mike Pelfrey looked cool confident and calm
and that he delivered a solid outing.
Pelfrey pitched six innings,allowing only 2 runs on Ian Dessmin's 2 run triple in
the second inning.If he can keep pitching like this this season the Mets will surely be
contenders for the Wild Card and maybe the Nl East.The bullpen was also very good,
Hisanori Takahashi was solid,aswell as Mejia.The offense delivered by hitting four
homers at Citi Field!!.Francouer had 2, aswell as Barajas.Francouer is already becoming
the hitter he was a couple of seasons ago in Atlanta.
The Mets to me now look really good for the Wild Card.Atlanta has not been playing
well,Wagner blew the lead for Hudson in the 9th and Chipper is already hurt 2 days into
the season.The Mets should also look foward to the fact that Reyes will be returning
to the Mets lineup today and provide an offensive boost to this team.If this team can
stay healthy and continue to pitch well this team will have an absolute shot at the
