Pedro Martinez, the pitcher I was gushing about in my last post, is injured, 4 innings into the new season. Heavy sigh. Last year, the Mets underwent the worst collapse in the century old history of baseball, blowing a 7 game lead with 17 games to play. So forgive me if I'm a little skittish.
On the plus side, they've won 2 or their first 3 games. And their left fielder is named Angel Pagan. So, that's cool.
