The Mets finished April with a 13-10 record despite being outscored by 20 runs for the month (111-91).
This one is sort of scary and suggests are record could be "lucky"
Dillon’s Birthday earns a Gee Whiz Dillon Gee beat the Rockies last Saturday night to earn the win on his 26th birthday. Gee became the first Mets starter to pitch on his birthday since Mark Clark in 1996, and the first to win on his birthday since Dave Mlicki in 1995.
The youngest Mets starter to earn a win on his birthday was SNY’s Ron Darling, who won on his 25th birthday in 1985. He’d win again on his 26th birthday the next year. The other two Mets starters to win on their birthday are Ray Burris (1980, 30th) and Wally Whitehurst (1991, 27th)
Mets starters are now 6-1 with two no-decisions in nine career starts on their birthday. Mets relievers are 4-2, with the most recent win coming from John Franco in 2001.
I've been pointing out elsewhere for awhile that the Mets were winning more often than they should because of their "runs scored" vs "runs allowed" differential...we simply don't have the pitching staff to survive the RS vs RA differential for very long...
how many of Thole's errors and passed balls were when Dickey is pitching? It's kind of hard to judge a guy that catches a knuckleballer vs guys that don't...unfortunately a player's game logs don't show their defensive stats so it's hard to figure out whether most of Thole's mistakes were Dickey induced or not...
