In the wake of yesterday’s loss to the Tigers, much of the focus today is understandably on the disappointing performance of Oliver Perez. However in his optimistic column on the Mets’ young staff, John Harper sneaks in the following note on pitcher John Maine:

Sitting among Mets executives and scouts behind the plate during their two intrasquad games on Monday and Tuesday, you couldn’t help notice the exchange of knowing glances and the occasional gasps of disbelief, once when John Maine struck out Carlos Delgado with a high fastball that seemed to explode in the strike zone.

Maine, in fact, has looked so good in camp that one Mets person, who didn’t want to be identified, insisted, “He could be better than (Mike) Pelfrey and (Philip) Humber. He’s got that live fastball, and his changeup has come a long way. He’s coming fast.”
