Mets/Cardinals Game 3 Analysis

Mets (2-0) Maine 0-0 0.00ERA Cardinals (0-2) Looper 0.00 ERA

I really liked what I saw from John Maine last year. I thought his stuff was above average, and his poise was excellent. He’s got a chance to be an above average big league starter for a long time.

I do wish Braden Looper the best as a starter, but I absolutely couldn’t stand him as a closer. He folded like a tent in big spots as the Mets closer. He hasn’t started a game since he was in Single-A in 1997. The Cardinals are taking a big chance with him, we’ll see what happens tonight.

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.
