I'm happy. The Mets are very good. Very good. The middle of their lineup can really hit and the Reds will not face this strong of a team very often. Their bullpen really makes the game a 7 inning game and I'm happy to see how we battled last night. Having said that, the defence is still shakey and that needs to get better. Phillips made an inexcusable error today as did Gonzalez yesterday. It happens but they need to limit it. The offence has been solid through 3 games. The Reds aren't the only team that will be held to 1 run vs Johan. Votto is having a great start to the season, carrying the offence so far. I expect Phillips and Bruce to step up soon. The Bullpen was pretty good outside of that disaster inning Mike Lincoln had last night. Rhodes has been wonderful and Cordero was lights out in shutting the door vs the Mets today.
All in all, I'm satisfied with the first series. Again, the Mets are very good. I felt we battled in all 3 games and our mistakes are correctable. Now Pittsburgh comes to town, in years past I would expect to win 2 out of 3 games. This year, I'm expecting a sweep but will accept 2 out of 3. Feels nice to get a win.
