The loss to Nationals was a tough one yesterday on opening day. Especially after taking a 3-0 lead in the first inning off an Andrew Brown home run. The game showed the biggest concern I have as a fan with the bullpen blowing the win in the 9th inning. On the other hand the Mets touched Strausburg for 4 runs in 6 innings worth of work. Hopefully the offense keeps clicking and the bullpen can get turned around and maybe the 90 wins management is hoping for will become reality.
On another more positive/happy note Daniel Murphy and his wife welcomed their first child into their family. Here is a 2009 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions card of the new dad himself to celebrate the occasion. I believe I picked this card up for about a buck off eBay.
