Opening Day at CitiField resuted in a 1-0 Mets win over the Atlanta Braves. The Mets are in first place! I say that now because this will likely be the only time I'll be able to say it all season long. For all you Yankees and Phillies fans out there, let me have my day. You guys will have all season to be in or close to first place. I have today.

The Mets currently have exactly the same number of wins as the mighty Phillies and one more win than the storied Yankees. The fact that the Yankees haven't played yet is merely a minor detail, and the fact that the Phillies are actually tied with the Mets for first place is unimportant to me today. I'm not in a sharing mood.

So Yankees and Phillies fans, I'm sure it'll be a long successful summer for you and that's great. For me and all the Mets fans, enjoy today. This may be as good as it gets!
