Game two of the series against the Mets at Shea is tonight, and it seems like a good time for manager Pete Mackanin’s troops to start another winning streak. Aaron Harang is pitching (how many wins were stolen from him in the first half by our bullpen?), and John Maine (the Will Shortz of the National League — how’s that for an obscure reference?) will go for the Mets.
If you get antsy before the game, or during, feel free to check out this exchange our own Bill Lack had with MetsToday.com. It’s worth a read, whether you agree or disagree with his conclusions (I agree with some, disagree with others, for what it’s worth).
