Seriously, if you got the injury update and then went to bed, you were the smart one. Because the game was a disaster. Chris Bassitt , who started the season looking like Max Scherzer ‘s icy lieutenant, got mauled by the Padres, with Jurickson Profar  a particular offender. Bassitt’s on a lousy run, the kind pitchers get stuck in now and then — lets assume it’s nothing more than that. The Mets lost by 11 runs, had five hits — compared with three errors — and the only suspense was whether J.D. Davis  would wind up pitching. (He did not.) Oh, and Khalil Lee  made his season debut, which I guess was something.
Anyway, it was a lousy night , and I hope for your sake it unfolded while you were asleep or elsewhere. Day off tomorrow. They could use it; so could we.
