I’m a big believer that April games are just as important as September games, or maybe even more important. If you win more now, you don’t have to win as much later. If the Mets are 2 games out late in the season, you can point to early season losses against shitty teams as the reason why. That’s why they have to win today. You’re home, with your ace on the mound, and going up against a team managed by an overmatched numbers crunching douchebag who looks like he loves a good Greek bathhouse. So step on the Phillies throats today, and head to Washington DC with a good taste in your mouth.
