Eight in a Row, Seven Straight at Home, But...

It's been fun to watch the Mets lately. They won opening day and their first series against Washington. They lost the next series in Atlanta, but won the finale, which started their winning streak, including their first four-game sweep of the Marlins.

It's only been two weeks, but two weeks of winning beats two weeks of losing or mediocre play. Even when they placed David Wright on the DL, the Mets didn't miss a beat; Eric Campbell has subbed admirably.

On to today's game. We lost two players, hit by balls. The first was pitcher Jerry Blevins, hit by a comebacker. He still managed to throw out the hitter, scooping the ball into his glove, and tossing it to first base. Then catcher Travis d'Arnaud was hit by a pitch.

Can we hold on? I'm a believer.
