Day 1: Mets 9 Reds 2

There are some things you just can’t know until you’ve been there. For instance, I had no idea that Mr. Met was such a Big Brother figure. Walking around Shea Stadium, one is affronted with constant signage stating “Mr. Met says do this,” or “Mr. Met says do that.” “Mr. Met says stay in your seat . . . Mr. Met says beware of batted balls . . . Mr. Met says war is peace.”

On the other hand, Mr. Met is quite the community figure, finding time to read to children, hand out T-shirts, and sing the seventh inning stretch. Who knew this guy was such a philanthropist?

The real Mets, however, have a legitimate championship hopeful on the field. Even with Cliff Floyd out, and David Wright in a mini-slump, they’re lineup is still looking like the National League All Star team. The pitcher Steve Trachsel got in the action as well, belting a solid homer to left. Jose Reyes, Paul Loduca, Carlos Delgado, and Wright will all make the squad, with Beltran given an outside shot. You couldn’t ask for more from their defense, either.

Even the old timer Jose Valentin was out to impress last night. With a six-run lead, he rounded third with his sites set on an inside the park homerun. Sure he got thrown out pretty handily at the plate, but I appreciated it nonetheless. You’re a crowd-pleaser Valentin, and I dig that about you.
