The Mets had a disappointing road trip where they went 2-5 and may have possibly been able to pull off an opposite record of 5-2 if more things went their way but through bullpen mishaps, bad starts, etc the Mets were a 2-5 team over the last week. Now they come home to face the Giants, a team they shoud be able to beat on paper and maybe start moving closer to the .500 line.
More importantly, tonight Ron Darling returns to the SNY booth. Ron announced yesterday that his cancer has stabalized and he has been cleared to return to work. Ron, we are relieved to hear this and are so happy you’re back!
