Laugher: Mets 12, Nationals 0

I guess it's nice to know that the Mets can still beat up on the also-rans. John Maine was solid in his first start back from the disabled list, though he'll have to do better than four walks in five innings. It could be that the couple of weeks off was enough rest to keep him strong through the summer and down the stretch, which will be a bonus as many starters begin to wear down in the season's final weeks.

Brian Stokes "saved" the game for the Mets. Regardless of how bad the Mets' bullpen is, if you need yet another indictment of the save as a ridiculous stat, that anyone could record a save in a 12-0 game should fit the bill. That said, Stokes was very strong through four innings, allowing the rest of the 'pen to take a much-needed day off.

Fernando Tatis: the legend continues to grow.

Dan Murphy: Benny Agbayani reincarnate.
