Battle of Rookies: Blair vs. Matz

One of these fine gentlemen is batting cleanup tonight, while the other is hitting leadoff.

I had a thought: if you juxtapose the names of the first two Mets' starters in this series, you get:

  • Matt Matz (silly)
  • Steve Harvey (awesome)

This has no relevance to tonight's game.


Hey, is that Brandon Snyder's first career start as a Brave? I think it is.
