      I'll not be doing the pre-game pitching matchups like I did last year, but I'll still be doing the Dalkowski110's Baseball Cards New York Mets Player of the Game!

        First pitch pushed back to 1:40, per SNY & WFAN.

          Favorite moment of the game so far:

          After watching Jose Reyes swing and fly out on the first pitch of his at bat in the 5th, Dan Murphy steps to the plate takes two strikes looking, and manages to grind out a 9 pitch at bat, the last pitch of which he deposited over the right field wall to give the Mets the lead.

          I know he doesn't have a huge track record, but you have to love his approach at the plate....That and the Red's atrocious defense.

            I enjoyed watching Ryan Church bobble the ball, and yet manage to catch it and double up the guy at first.

            Also, I'm stepping over to the enemy side for a minute - it's cool to see Darnell McDonald is the Reds' opening day starting centerfielder. He's had a rough day in the field (lots of tough balls falling the wrong way) but after watching him in Rochester these past couple summers, I'm rooting for him as well. He certainly spent plenty of time in the minors, that's for sure.

              And the Mets win 2-1! Despite Johan Santana's great work through five innings and a good showing by new relievers Sean Green, J.J. Putz, and Francisco Rodriguez, I have to give the Dalkowski110's Baseball Cards New York Mets Player of the Game Award to Daniel Murphy. Daniel drove in both Mets runs and hit the first round-tripper of the 2009 season! Congrats Daniel!

                It's great to see the bullpen hold it. They picked the first game to make a statement, I like it. Good job today in rough conditions fellas!

                  It's great to see not only a good closer in K-Rod, but also a solid 8 man in Putz. IMO the two have equally important roles considering what happened last season.

                  Now if Billy Wagner comes back in mid-season and takes a reliever role, that would be just scary. Wagner, Putz, K-Rod... 7,8,9.

                    Please, I don't want to see any more of Wagner. Not even in the 7th. Great bullpen today. Wright had a not-so-good day. Struck out with man on 3rd and less than two outs. Got picked off 1B. And got thrown out at home. But a very nice start. Pelfrey up next.

                      But on the plus side a brilliant defensive play.

                        I like the crowd's reaction at around the 14th second.

                          I got a laugh out of the double "AWWW!!" from the crowd.

                          (ball hit)
                          "Yeaaahh!! ...AWWWW!!!!"

                          (ball thrown back to 1st)
                          "Yeaaahh!! ...AWWWW!!!!"

                          lol

                            I didn't see that play until after I had visited the web site to watch the highlights. For some reason, this year, the video for the highlights on the web site is very jerky. Is that happening to anyone else? Or is it something to do with my computer?

                              Was Santana pulled early in the sixth as a precaution? I thought he was grooving along and I was sure he'd at least go 7 innings. I noticed at one point between innings as Johann was walking off the field he winced and it looked like he grabbed his shoulder.
