Historically, the Mets have been very good on Opening Day but today we were not – at least when it mattered most. Despite being 1 strike away from victory, the bullpen blew a late lead and we lost in extras. A tough loss for sure but there were some positives like homers from Wright and Legares to go along with a solid outing from Gee.
The outcome is definitely not going to spoil the greatness of Opening Day for me. A win would have been nice but we will be back at it again on Wednesday. Most importantly, everyday for the next 5 months will have baseball and that’s something to be very excited about.
