This was a big day for the Mets. Not only did Pedro Martinez make a successful return to the pitching rotation and record his 3,000th career strikeout, but Keith Hernandez managed to work the words "floozy" and "blusterous" into his pregame analysis and later to go on about the importance of the Mets "bulge" (i.e., their five-game lead over the Phillies).
Look, all I know is that my life would be a lot less complete without these two gentlemen. God bless you, Pedro Martinez and Keith Hernandez.
It's been a roller coaster of a couple weeks in Mets Land, so let's just enjoy the upswing. And oh yeah, keep on rooting for those Bravos! (For two more days, anyway.)
