The Mets’ Secret Weapon Is the Knuckler

The Mets lost again last night, a game that was a culmination of everything that's going wrong for David Wright these days. And that was with Johan Santana pitching. Now comes the fun part: Tonight, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey takes the hill against the Nationals, which is always cool, particularly because Rod Barajas has zero experience catching knuckleballers. Tomorrow, John Maine is on the mound, and then it's Subway Series time. We are going to try to remain positive. Two games under .500 is not that big of a deal. Last place means nothing right now. Hang in there — the knuckleballer is here.
