Meet the Mets
Michael Cuddyer hit his first home run of the season, Bartolo Colon made noise with arm and stick, and Daniel Murphy came through with the go-ahead RBI in the Mets' 4-3 victory over Atlanta on Sunday afternoon.
The most funny and awesome part of the game was when Colon delivered a key RBI single.
Before the game, Terry Collins said that injured relievers Bobby Parnell and Vic Black will begin their rehab assignments soon.
The Mets could simply not have afforded to start 2-4, says the Post.
The Daily News as well decided to focus on how much worse this first week of baseball could have been.
The Daily News found a doctor in Manhattan who once was Mr. Met! Did he get threatened by secret service, though?
