Mets sweep the Cards behind John Maine

What can  you say about a 10-0 game?  Maine was fantastic! He pitched a great seven innings, moving the ball around the zone nicely.  That was a pitching clinic. Even Braden Looper looked good for the Cardinals through five innings, but they left him in to pitch the sixth and he lost it. It was downhill from there for the Cards bullpen. The Mets hitters completely demolished their bullpen. Great two-homer game for Beltran.

Sweeping the Cards at home in nice payback for last year’s playoffs, and an excellent start to the season. I think the Mets will win over 100 games this year. The NL isn’t very good, and the Mets pitching is better than it was last year when they won 97.

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.
