last night, gio shut down the mets, got W #19. This looms large in tonight's game.
If RA Dickey expects Cy Young consideration, this game is must-win. A standout pitching performance vs one of the major leagues best offenses would be a signature moment, something that will be fresh on the minds of the people who decide these things.
the mets suck. but they do win this guys games. despite how bad they play, dickey has 18 wins. most teams have an ace whom they step up for. this is the guy the mets step up for.
the fact the mets are favored, given how awful they been playing at home, gives me confidence this is the winning side. im sure nats backers see a bargain in this line. last nights outcome sets up a nice trap situation.
