Don’t Blame Hernández

The Mets wre tied going into the 9th inning last night in Houston. That’s when Roberto Hernandez entered the game with the mission of preserving the tie so the Mets bats would have a chance to win it in the 10th (yeah, right). Hernandez ended up losing the game. It’s easy to be upset at Hernandez for costing the team the game but it would be wrong. Hernandez has been a big surprise this year and has been one of the few cosistent arms out of the pen. His rejuvenated performance has Omar Minaya being the envy of all the other GMs in the league for his judgment that Hernandez, written off by every other team in the league, had something left.

If you need to pass blame here then pass it to the Mets bats who mannaged just 1 run against Ezequiel Astacio (who?). Good work, guys. Way to waste a Pedro Martinez start.
