They’re off! The baseball season is now fully underway, and I’m especially delighted (and surprised) to see the New York Mets off to a winning start, overcoming the Atlanta Braves by 1-0.
Santana pitched five scoreless innings Thursday in his first game in 19 months, David Wright drove in a key run, the revamped bullpen held its ground and the Mets scored a 1-0 victory over the Braves at Citi Field.
(The boxscore is here.)
Unfortunately, it cannot last. Can it?
