Shaun Marcum's 2013 Bowman baseball card

Shaun Marcum’s 2013 Bowman baseball card

Anthony Young‘s record 0-13 start is safe; Shaun Marcum finally earned his first victory as a Met tonight.  Now Marcum (1-9) can try to catch up with Cole Hamels (2-11 as I write this.)

The Mets offense had to take advantage of some shoddy Chicago White Sox defense to score their runs, and the Mets’ defense made Marcum look better than he really was, but the important thing is that the Mets actually impressed for most of the night. For a while, I had completely stopped looking for that to happen. Yay, progress.

Meanwhile, things seem to be falling apart over in the Bronx.

Yeah, the Yankees shouldn’t matter to me. And mostly, they don’t — but after watching them be the more popular and more successful team for over a decade, I am enjoying watching Cashman find ways to manufacture problems when he already has more than enough unavoidable ones.
