I saw the game this afternoon (I put off the yardwork - something about time management)...
Yes. Johan wasn't as good as expected surrendering three gopherballs. Three is ordinarily 3 too many, but let's be realistic, he does have a propensity for giving up a lot of home runs as evidenced by this stint with the Twins. 33 alone last year. So there should not be any suprises.
He has a habit of grooving the ball right down in the right place in the strike zone. Something called pinpoint control.
Take a look at Peter Botte's article in the Daily News: http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/mets/2008/04/hey-mets-fans-lay-off-johan.html One line says it all about his pitching performance: "Not Cy Young, but not Anthony Young" Let's also realize, Johan doesn't deserve the Ed Whitson treatment.
Tomorrow, Sunday, April 13, I am going to my first Mets game of the year. I do hope Jose Reyes is back in the line up.
