Hisanori "The Samurai" Takahashi? He was lights-out in the pen, he's been fantastic in the rotation and could probably close, too (barring Mike Pelfrey's availability, of course).What more can be said about
If there's anything being a Mets fan has taught me, it's that you can never have enough uniform iterations. Or effective starting pitching coupled with timely hitting. The Amazin's go for the sweep tonight, and judging by the Phils' ongoing offensive woes, it just might happen. With Big Pelf on the hill and Reyes' most welcome resurgence, I'm even more encouraged.
This season has been a roller coaster already and it's not even June. I'd have it no other way, of course. New York Mets baseball is the best theater going.
Phillies outfielder Ben Francisco's "anglatino" name struck me as unique. I mean, how often do you meet a "Pedro Jones" or a "Jeff Garcia"? Oh, wait. Nevertheless, Francisco's forename is "Louis". Now you know, and that's one to grow on.
