Santana Wins As Mets Crush Reds 12-6

It wasn’t Johan Santana’s best performance but it’s typical for him this season. He can get into trouble, giving up 10 hits and a walk today, but he can work his way out. Santana got his fourth win of the season against an outmanned Cincinnati team.

There was a lot of offense on display for the Mets in the first game of today’s double header. Particulary, Carlos Delgado had three hits including a home run. He batted seventh in the order for the first time since 1995. Mets fans have been calling for him to be dropped in the order for weeks and Willie Randolph finally came to same conclusion. It seems like Willie is always the last one to figure these things out.

Brian Schneider also homered today. Surprisingly it was his first extra base hit of the season. I would guess that we’ll see Ramon Castro catching for the first time this season in the second game today.

    One-down – One-to-go! I have a trademark saying, "I'm not just a fan – I'm a Coach and Teammate." Thus, I'm putting the Coaching jersey on, and would like to share an on-going disappointment we call the Bullpen. In a game that had enough run support to have our bullpen buddy's feel more relaxed than usual – at least I'd like to believe how their mindset would shift with a big lead – compared to either a tie-game or one-run game. Nonetheless, our bullpen came into the game looking to get some quality practice, with no thoughts of blowing their lead. Well, let's analyze our Bullpen Buddy's performance – in a game where they should've been lights-out. Heilman is a given to do something that just ticks me off, so let's start with the Fighting Irish guy. I tell ya, we could've made a llllot of money if we bet on each of his outings, with the obvious bet being that he'll give-up something to make me scratch my head enough to start shedding like a dirty dog. Ya know what, I changed my mind, enough said about the man of no emotion – so let's summarize the entire bullpen performance today, which had 3-pitchers take a crack at their practice session . . . -3-innings pitched-5-hits-3-runs-2-walks-1-strikeout-0-homersAwesome how they threw a no-no with homeruns huh??!!! NOPE, not impressive at all, because all I can say is, "Thank Goodness the game wasn't close." Scottie-B **In my opinion . . ."–Scottie-B
