He’s baaaack! Johan went 6 innings with 5 k’s and only gave up a run on Opening Day. Mets fans can count on Johan to start off the season on a good foot. He finished the day with 103 pitches thrown and 69 were for strikes. The bullpen helped secure the lead for Santana and he walks away with his first win and first MUA. Ive got a feeling Johan meant what he said aboutÂ him being the best pitcher in the east, and we are all going to have a front row seat of him making his case.
So, I guess Wright is taking his lack of home run production critique personally. Wright hit a nice opposite field home run in the 1st inning to up the Mets up and worked out a nice 10 pitch walk off JJ in the 3rd to finish the day 1-3 with 2 RBI’s. Wright was charged with a throwing error in the 8th but by then, the Mets were up 7-1. Many believe Wright made a major step forward in the leadership department last year with all the injuries, im sure he will make a ton of new believers with what we saw today.
Jason Bay wasted no time in introducing himself to Met fans with a single in his first at bat.Â Jason also hit a deep shot into center in the 6th and HUSTLED for a triple that would have made Jose smile. Jason finished the game going 2-4 and accounting for a run. Welcome to the Queens Jason, very glad to have you on board and doing your thing while I try to figure out a catchy nick name for ya…JayBay? Bayside?
