4/25 - Mets 5, Braves 4

To paraphrase America's favorite caucasian rapper Eminem, "Will the real Aaron Heilman please stand up, please stand up, please stand up?" Two starts ago he looked like Tom Seaver; one start ago he looked like Tom Arnold on the mound. So of course last night he looked like Tom Glavine--great control, baffling the hitters with his off speed stuff. When I say "looked like," I'm just guessing, because once again Keith Hernandez and Fran Healy were paired up for the middle innings of this game, so I immediately decided to go to the laundromat and to listen to the game on WFAN. Once again it was a great choice, as listening Gary Cohen and Howie Rose call a game is just about the most enjoyable few hours you'll get in a day. Of course, I don't have to tell Time Warner customers that...

Tonight is the rematch of the great Pedro Martinez-John Smoltz duel that took place on April 10th. Alas, I'll be at Paul Westerberg, so tomorrow's recap will be short on details.
