Johan Santana is back on the mound and the mind for the first time since before I knew who Lucas Duda, Zack Wheeler, and Irving Picard were. He’s taking on the World Series champ Cardinals and ESPN’s bottom line has those of us who can’t (stand to) watch covered. Apparently, Johan has gone two scoreless, surrendering a harmless single and a lone walk. Unfortunately, no K’s just yet.
Looks like he just got pulled, so two innings it is for Johan. Let’s hope the next few days of recovery go smoothly and that he doesn’t come down with Valley Fever.
In the other Mets game…yes there are two of them going on simultaneously…Wandy Rodriguez is working us and getting some help from a couple early Mets errors. Would it shock you to learn Murph made a throwing error? No? Me neither. I certainly don’t care if we win either of these games but let’s hope the mistakes get ironed out.
It’s great to back after a bit of a hiatus but it should be an interesting year, if nothing else. Speaking of hiatus’, shout out to Joe Petruccio who’s back to his old tricks over at My Mets Journal. Check him out.
