Steve Matz was amazing

I never cared for the Mets, and I put that in a way that tempers my real feelings because this is a family-friendly website.  If you played for the Yankees during the Horace Clarke Era as I did, watching the other New York team win a World Series in 1969 and a pennant in 1973, the Mets were the evil empire.  But as a fan, I could not help but root for Steven Matz, the Southpaw who excited the entire baseball family on Sunday with his amazing major league debut.  He gave up just two runs in 7 2/3 innings, with six strikeouts and just three walks.  And I can’t remember a rookie pitcher with a better day at the plate: 3-for-3 with four RBI’s.  Simply incredible, and I tip my hat to this young and exciting new pitcher – even a Mets pitcher.
