Johan Santana not only established himself as the Mets ACE today, but he might very well have entered into the Cy Young debate.
On three days rest, Santana pitched a gem; a complete game, three hit shutout. He was masterful in leading the Mets to a 2-0 victory, striking out nine, walking three, while throwing 117 pitches. Of the 117 pitches, 74 were strikes.
Enjoy it Mets fans. Sort or reminds me of last year, where in game 161 John Maine pitched a brilliant game, giving up one hit en route to a Mets 13-0 win. The one thing we have this year going into game 162 is that we will have OP on the mound, not Titanic Glavine!
Oh, for those interested, I will be using this same Lucky Mug tomorrow, although I won't be able to be sitting in my scientifically proven lucky seat. I will be at my mother-in-laws. If that affects the Mets chances...
