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.
