9/22 - Marlins 2, Mets 1

As predicted, this was a pitchers duel between Dontrelle Willis and Pedro Martinez--sort of. I didn't get to pick up the game until after Pedro was lifted in the 5th, so I don't know why he was taken out after only 75 pitches. But look at the results of Juan Padilla and Aaron Heilman--4 innings, no runs, 2 hits. I can see the future of the Mets bullpen, and it ain't Braden Looper and Danny Graves. Get an established closer, have these two guys as the setup men, and we could have something going here for next year.

Why do I sound like a broken record when I say "next year?"
