Pittsburgh vs. New York Mets, 16 August 2005

Mark Redman (5-12, 4.75) vs. Kris Benson (8-4, 3.54). Kris Benson! Oh, I love Kris! I miss him so much when he's gone that when I'm on vacation and I can't check out a Mets game, I turn off the lights in my hotel room and watch a grainy homemade videotape of his hot 8-0 win against the Cardinals, August 20, 2002. If Kris ever throws that beautiful two-seam fastball for the pleasure of another, well, I'll have to write glowingly about all his teammates. And the coaches, and the batboys.
