Yeah! First win at CitiField. Good game all around. But even though Murphy has proven he's a good hitter, there is no DH in the National League. I think Murphy should be the one getting extra outfield practice not Sheffield.

Can someone tell me what happened in left field at Citipark?
I have seats in the upper deck of left field and I couldn't see the field. The place was poorly planned.
A billion dollar stadium and the sightlines are horrible.

First, what a great win. Yes I said great win, forget the few mistakes. It was so heartening to see Perez pitch to his potential and the hitting start to wake up. Sheffield will contribute. Very early for him. To answer your question about the sight lines at Citi Park (hope to go ther someday soon). Was Citi Park designed by businessmen and architects or baseball fans? I think you know the answer to that. From wathcing the game on ESPN it looks like a "quirky" park and I question the placement of seats and the design of the field. I predict a lot of odd plays and managers getting involved in where balls hit and where they land and all that. A beautiful park with lots of amenities but "quirky" I question if it was designed by "baseball People" I agree with you.

All I know is I am going to the first day game at Citi on Saturday to see Yohan's banana pitch. I didn't pay for the seats, but I get the privledge of going into debit to pay for parking and eating sushi, lobster rolls, pull pork chops and Martinis.

BTW, I always loved Shea's Salt Water soaked Peanuts..do they sell them at Citi, or are they now considered classless?

Thank you

Happy to admit that I was wrong about Ollie, at least last night, now lets see if the Mets can beat a true #1 ace tonight & maybe get on some kind of roll..........and maintain it.

Do the Mets have a backup plan for starting pitching if Pelfrey goes to the disabled list or other starting pitchers that are now penciled in, don't work out according to plan?

Nice game from Perez. I'm already having nightmares about his next start.

I dont understand the designed shallow cut off play, Murphy does have the arm to go to third does he not? I think it is being made more complicated than it has to be out there for him.

"I think there is room for improvement," Delgado said. "I think we can definitely play better. We can play better defensively, and even offensively, we're not firing on all cylinders yet. That's encouraging, but we don't want to wait too long."

You think?

Right on, looks like bad coaching.I've seen little leaguers make better throws.

Hey, Murph, exhale, inhale. Do the Mets have a breathing coach? Not to worry, he'll never be as bad as Ron Swoboda. It took ol' Ron two years to learn how to judge fly balls, then, of course, made the best catch in WS history!

Bill: if I was you, I would not plan my day around waiting for my posts. In the larger scheme of things you may have more important commitments, like watching Jerry Springer or some other intellectual pursuits-after all what do I know?
