As we hunker down for Irene, I savor one of the few bits of good news to come from the Mets lately. My only regret is that it was at Citi, not Turner Field, the latter having bugaboo status in Mets lore. It was good to see Chris Capuano, the veteran acquired from Milwaukee in the off-season, having a creditable outing to join some others in his career so far with the Mets, despite a 10-11 record and 4.43 ERA. It was also encouraging to see good hitting by the likes of Lucas Duda and Justin Turner, who appeared in only 29 and four games, respectively, for the Mets in 2010. Hope springs eternal.
