BASEBALL: Question of the Day, 10/18/06

Who would you rather have starting the big game tonight, if you had to choose - John Maine or Kris Benson?

I'd take Maine, who at least has a live arm and hasn't shown signs of wearing out down the stretch. Maybe he doesn't come up big tonight, but I definitely feel the Mets have a fighting chance with Maine.

How 'bout George Benson? At least you know the National Anthem will be perfromed in style.

I'm pretty sure that by midnight tonight, they'll be saying "Remember the Maine!" in NY.
What I don't know if they'll be saying it in delight or in frustration.

Hindsight makes it easy to say if you are a Mets fan you wanted Maine pitching over Benson. I would have picked Maine yesterday too. As I commented yesterday in another post, Mets fans were going to see last night what Maine was made of. We all know what Benson is made of, Jell-o. My guess would be that put in the same situation last night, Benson would not have survived the first inning. I think you ahve a keeper in Maine.
