Even Nicer Victory Tonight Guys

What's up Met fans, Willie here. An even nicer victory tonight as we shutout the Atlanta Braves 1-0 behind some solid pitching by Glavine, Heilman and Wagner, clutch hitting by Lo Duca, and excellent management by me.

The big news besides the victory is of course the return of Carlos Beltran to the lineup. The temperature wasn't quite as warm as Carlos wanted, but when I took the local paper and showed him the "feels like" temperature section, he was satisfied that it was warm enough. He had a really good game, going 1-3 with a walk, but after the game, I pulled Endy aside and told him, "Don't worry, you'll be back in this lineup soon. After all, we do play Pittsburgh on Wednesday and Thursday, and I know C-Bel has a childhood fear of pirates."

Hawkeyed viewers might also have noticed that in the 9th inning, I told Jose Valentin to get ready to pinch-hit then changed my mind and went with Julio Franco. I did this not because I've lost any sort of faith in Valentin, but rather the opposite, I have too much faith in him. I knew that if I sent Jose up with a runner on, the most likely outcome would have been a 500-foot two-run homerun to deep centerfield, giving us a 3-0 lead. But would this test Wagner's intestinal fortitude? No, not in the slightest. Wagner needs to get us some 1-0 pressure saves so I can know whether to trust him or not later on, so I called Valentin back and sent up Franco, who I was reasonably confident would not be able to replicate anything near Valentin's potential production. And of course, a double play ensued.

Alright Met fans, I'd better get some shut-eye, we've got an afternoon game tomorrow with Trachsel going against Kyle Davies, the guy who threw a complete game against us in his last outing. It's revenge time!
