I don't know whether to laugh or roll my eyes...but that is a good line.
Basically going into the season I had miniscule confidence in Maine and Niese, zero confidence in Pelfrey and negative confidence in Ollie, so far I might have to downgrade Maine. I do think it's too bad he's had all the arm troubles the last couple years, I think he - unlike Pelf - had the tools to be consistent and a far better head on his shoulders than Ollie, and I don't want to completely sell the stock in one game since he might still be feeling the effects of the virus/food poisoning/whatever but I'd say last night was more bad than good despite the rally.
I do give them credit for the rally though, they had to work out some good at bats as much as the Marlin defense gave it away. Francoeur going from 0-2 to a walk, you wouldn't have seen that last year for example. Unfortunately it looked like an '08 rally where they came back and the pen blew it anyway.
The Mets did do some nice things (as you've pointed out with Francoeur), but I still put most of that comeback on the shoulders of the Marlins.
Yeah, I needed something to rhyme with Santana, out came banana, that was that. Your expectations are pretty much dead on, in that we can't realistically expect much from this bunch. Omar and the Mets will always point to each pitchers' one or two good seasons as reason to hope, as we all know.
