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.

*blink* Angel Pagan? Oh, I have a new favorite player.

Is Clocky friends with Planty?

I kinda figured he'd be your fave, Nancy.

Angel Pagan? Thats totally amazing. I'm going to tell Jeff, the kid talking to me about baseball, that members of my Pagan Cult are infiltrating baseball. Hmm... lets think... I should also convice him that Pagan does Viking rituals to gain game power. Oh I am going to have so much fun with this one.

And Vic, their right fielder is Ryan Church. So the battle between good and evil is occurring right their in the outfield of Shea Stadium. If you wanna read a good book about the mystical aspects of baseball (and there are many), read The Iowa Baseball Confederacy by WP Kinsella. GREAT book. Whether you like baseball or not.
