John Maine: Save Something For The Regular Season

Maine has looked good this spring and appears to be building on last years 15-win season. Bart Hubbach has a good column in today’s edition of the Post.

Maine has pitched 10 consecutive scoreless innings now and has a 2.63 ERA this spring. As I’ve said before in my posts “Don’t get too excited about spring training performances”. But I think Maine has a chance to have a very good, long career in baseball. I like his calm demeanor and his stuff is above average. I can’t remember seeing him look rattled on the mound.

Carlos Beltran also dismissed the idea of DH’ing again to play in center field. That’s a great sign with opening day only two weeks away.

Luis Castillo is set to play today as well. Maybe the rash of injuries is coming to an end.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
