| I saw on twitter he hit 98. Because of course.
LOL.. yeah, he went what.. 4 scoreless and gave up 1 hit?
Of fucking course. Not that it's the most impressive line - 4 innings isn't much of an outing. But it's still funny that it was probably his best outing so far this year - and his first one with the Reds.
Oh well. We got some return out of Mesoraco tonight even though we didn't need the insurance. Harvey just needed to go - the entire relationship was fractured and wasn't going to get any better.
Big win, man.. we needed it. For 8 innings, this was another annoying, frustrating game where we just could not do anything offensively. Scooter's HR was huge... especially for him. I think he needed that even more than the team did. We need him to be the guy he was last year before he got hurt.
The Phillies seem to be the one team in our division whom we have their number. The other three teams still give us all sorts of trouble. Even beating the Marlins never seems easy.
Forget two of three here - we need to sweep this team. We got a win in the game where we had the biggest pitching disadvantage. Now we have Thor and Jake in games 2 and 3. Cannot let this opportunity go to waste. We can knot up with them if we get a sweep here.
The Nats are awake now so the Mets really can't afford to slump any longer if they want to stay in the race. They already erased the grace period they created the first 3 weeks.
We'll see what these guys are made of... it's only May 12th, but the Phillies and Braves seem to have arrived a bit earlier than expected, so if we're going to do anything this year, we're going to have to get back on track.. like now.
