Mets Take the First Game from the Giants

Wow! What a game… the Mets win in 12 innings on Carlos Delgado’s second home run of the game.  Now I remember how bad Armando Benitez is. He balked twice with Jose Reyes on base, and then gave up the game winning homer to Delgado. Benitez wilts under pressure every time. He did it for the Orioles and Mets, now the Giants are the victims.

Tim Lincecum looked great for the Giants. He’s got some great pitches and throws incredibly hard for a small guy. I’ll be shocked if he isn’t in the major leagues for a long time. Oliver Perez didn’t look so good, but battled through early adversity with back to back homers in the first inning. I’m really glad to see Perez fighting through early trouble to pitch a decent game.

That was the best game of the year so far, and the fans only got to boo Barry Bonds in one pinch hit at-bat.

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.
