OK, I’d rather slam my hand in a car door than drop the first 2 series versus the Bravos, but here’s what smells good right now:
- Delgado is the backbone of this team. He will hit.
- El Duque looks good. We can schedule his mid-season DL vaca now to rest up for the post-season.
- Willie is letting his pitchers know very early this season just what is expected of them.
- Getting Petey back this fall looks to be on track and given Omar’s dry-powder to land a front-line starter at the trade deadline, we may add serious fire power at the end.
- Julio Franco should lead a separatist movement on Roosevelt Avenue and declare himself the King of Flushing … his kind of player-mentoring is worth its weight in gold.
- Reyes. NL MVP.
Warm weather, Cool mojitos and a lazy afternoon at the Shea … aahhhhh.
