Odds and Ends from Last Night

Solid game for the Mets last night, as the Marlins continued to scuffle as they couldn’t figure out John Maine who had easily his best performance of the young season.

Maine who through 6 very strong innings only gave up one hit and one unearned run, which occurred because of another dropped fly ball in left field, this time by Gary Sheffield.

Couple of injury notes as Carlos Delgado has a sore hip, which will be checked out today. Hopefully it isn’t as serious as the hip problems he has last year which caused a dreadful start. Luis Castillo also left the game, due to back spasms, after legging out an infield hit. Castillo who has been absolutely on fire is said to be day to day, but if he needs to sit out longer it would be a big loss for the Mets, as Alex Cora has yet to prove he can it.

Overall thought the Mets offense looked really good, stranding only 4 of their 11 runners. Sheffield and Wright both came through with rbi hits in the first which is definitely a good sign. Santos it his first hr of his career, a grand slam, however Carlos Beltran had a slow day for him, going only 1 for 4 with a run scored.

On a side note, after having sampled some of the food out in center field, it really amazes me how good it is, and for a New York ballpark, and reasonably priced it is. Last night had the Tacos from the Taqueria and they were really fantastic, especially the steak taco. Shake Shack also is great, as it’s the same as in Madison Square Park, just a more limited menu. Tonight perhaps Blue Smoke.
