So, all of the sudden, the Mets have drawn even at 5-5, erasing their dismal 0-5 start. They beat the Marlins 4-0. In fact, the Mets have a better record than the Yanks right now. Tonight, they did it on the back of... Aaron Heilman?? I've panned this guy so many times before... he's a career 3-11 in 20 starts. People are saying "finally" because they've touted him so much, but I have to see another start. I remember Dave Mlicki shutting out the Yanks one time and that was about it for his career. At least with Mlicki, he had a 12-6 curve that made me think he had something. I'm not getting on the Aaron Heilman bandwagon just yet, but I'll throw the guy a bone for a 1-hitter. Impressive start. Tomorrow, I'm going to see Pedro's home opener against Al Leiter. Should be quite a game and the weather is supposed to be faaaantastic.
