Yes, it’s Pittsburgh, and they have been a bottom feeder in the central for years. This does not mean the Mets should take them lightly. The Mets are sending out their “B” team for their sixth straight game. Yea they went five and one in the stretch, and winning for these guys is the only way to build experience.
This is a great opportunity for them to build up their confidence against a team like Pittsburgh. For the Yankees are peering down the road.
The Mets throw out their three best pitchers. Living Hernandez, Johan Santana, and Mike Pelfrey. Even more reason why a clean sweep is necessary. The Mets have to take care of teams that are not as skilled as them. Even if the “B team is out there, they are still more talented.
Honestly, I don’t mind this line-up. They all play with heart and its inspiring. Finally some emotion with somebody in a Met uniform that wants no win.
So tonight, if Livan can have a solid start the Mets should cruise to an easy win. With the Sheff playing so well, the Mets walk with a swagger. Signing him was the best move they made all year.
Do I think this is the best team we had in the past three years? It's not even close. But this team definetly tries the hardest. Truly that’s all that matters.
