Yesterday marked the first game played at GHMP since the gut wrenching loss the Mets suffered back on November 1, 2015 where the Royals celebrated in our back yard.
Hopefully the Mets will fare better in 2016 than they did in 2001; hopefully last season was a vital learning experience that will be well used this year in our pursuit of our third World Championship.
A lot on how this season develops begins and ends with our prolific pitching staff. Yesterday the deGrominator left after 6 inning due to what is being called a pulled right lat. No need to jump off the ledge just yet. Let's just hope his injury isn't too bad, nor debilitating.
Also, let's not jump off the ledge because Yoenis Cespedes is only 2-14. It's a long season.
Although they are very talented, my biggest concern is the Mets infield. But, again, this is a long season, and starting out 2-1 isn't too bad considering the season started against KC.
Lets just take pride and solace that last year turned out much better than any of us could have imagined. Let's build upon that.
