"You can’t explain it. It was an uplifting game last night, and today was a downer."

Mets 5, Nationals 1: Taylor Jordan gets the "2013 Washington Nationals Starter" treatment from his teammates in his Major League debut. Meaning: he did his job, but got no help from his teammates. At least he gets to bring back a box of baseballs: Video of his first Big League K here. Video of his first Big League hit here.
So much for turning points. Back to .500. Maybe they're just a .500 team, and that's OK?
