This was the game in this series the Mets should have won. Pedro Martinez on the mound against a rookie; Carlos Beltran making his first start in Houston since powering the Astros through last year's playoffs; and the offensive seemed to be back on track after scoring nine runs the night before.
Alas, the Mets recent offensive woes continued, and Roberto Hernandez had a bad inning for the first time in what seems like forever. And it's amazing the vitriol the Astros fans had for Beltran, who they only had for four months as a rent-a-player last year. Well, it is Texas, home base of our current President, so stupidity seems to run through the entire state.
The latest great comment from Gary Cohen on WFAN: "That noise you hear is the fans doing the wave. It's a 2-2 game in the bottom of the eighth Howie, you'd think they have something more important to look at. What is this, the mid-80s?"
