    Nats 9, Mets 7, Not a Bad Way To Start the Season

    Sloppy game at times, not the best of starts for the Nats.

    But a win is a win.

    95 more and maybe the Nats'll have something.

    Was that the Mets closer that blew the game?

    It was a group effort actuallly, except for Valverde who did well.

    Gee looked good, ran out of steam...Valverde was the only bright spot in a horrific show of ineptitude.

    Honestly, I was pulling for the Metsies and had hope for them including Wrights late two run dinger, but it wasnt to be.

    Thought Collins did a good job of downplaying the loss afterwards, but you could see on his face during the game he couldnt friggin believe what he was seeing. ALmost a slap in the face that Bobby Valentine was doing the wrap up show with that ever present smug smirk.

    Mets failure to address the bullpen this offseason has already be shown,.

    I know it is only one game, but not the way you wanted to see the season start. Another bullpen collapse, just adding to the string of collapses over the past couple of years.

    Even if all the Mets young pitching pans out next year they are not going to win until they get that bullpen in order. You need two big arms in the backend AND a lefty. The bullpen is what separates the good teams from the legit contenders.

    I'm well aware it's only three games, and it's a VERY long season, but it's quite nice to start it off with a 3 game sweep on the hated Mets.

    Why would anyone hate the Mets? The Mets are cute and hilarious. I don't get it.

    On the bright side, tonight...the bullpen held up, a little offense, a little rookie shining and Robertson handled his first post-Mo opportunity as well as he could.

    Only three games, I'd like to see the Mets turn it around, Collins has been level headed about it and it was nice to see Danny Murphy do well in his return. Met him, he's a class act, a baseball player.

    The Mets aren't nearly as bad as they looked vs the Nationals.
