Nationals 4 – Mets 3 April 10, 2010

New York Mets Jose Reyes runs to first base at Citi Field in New York

There were a couple of big season debuts for the Mets today: Oliver Perez made his first start of the season and Jose Reyes returned from the disabled list. It’s still hard to believe that it’s been nearly a year since Reyes played in a game.

Perez looked just like he has over the last few seasons. His pitches were all over the place while occasionally displaying strikeout ability. Here’s the breakdown of the game:

  • The Good– Reyes came back and went 1 for 4, the bullpen had 3.1 innings scoreless, Jeff Francouer went 2 for 4 (.444 on the season)
  • The Bad – Willie Harris robbed the Mets again closing out the game on a diving catch of a line drive by Rod Barajas
  • The Ugly– Perez gave up 4 runs on 4 hits and 4 walks in 5.2 IP, David Wright made his second error in five games

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.
