The More Things Change…
If Victor Zambrano and Kris Benson were both available to start last night, why on Earth did the Mets go with Benson so he was facing Atlanta for the third time in a row? Clearly, they knew how to hit him, hence the 8-0 loss.
And even though the rotation is improved, the Mets still can’t hit with runners in scoring position. Until they solve that problem, they will remain mired in mediocrity.
As for the other trades, well, the Expos and Final Frontiersmen bid farewell to Orlando Cabrera and the NL welcomes Nomar Garciaparra. Should be interesting to see how the change of scenary affect shis attitude and style of play.
