Game 29: Mets 10 - Pirates 1

Jon Maine was fairly hard on himself after this one, but I was happy to see him pitch a game with only 2 walks. Although obviously still not at his best, Maine is starting to look like a dependable starter again.

For all of his early struggles, I find it impressive that opposing batters are only hitting .195 against him. Walks and the propensity for the real bad inning have hurt him so far, but I'm starting to feel a lot better about Maine.

Gary Sheffield is really doing a decent job in the outfield when he gets a start there. He's not hitting a ton yet, but has looked better at the plate. I'm still skeptical of his chances for success in this role, but not quite as much as I was.
