Mets took game one despite the lack of defense behind Santana. “He’s making his pitches, and he’s executing his pitches, but we’re not executing on our end defensively,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “And to some degree, that has to be frustrating. But he battled.” “I don’t know at this point,” Jerry said. “I don’t know if I have choices.” Concerning Ramon Martinez [...]
