Citi Field - April 20th

After complaints last year about its new ballpark lacking a Mets image, the club has moved the Shea Stadium home run apple (virtually buried last year in an out-of-the-way area behind the right field stands) to a prominent spot near Citi Field's entrance.
The ballclub's slow start certainly held down attendance last night. I'm guessing that no more than 15,000 people were on hand to see the Mets and Cubs. The night belonged to pitcher Mike Pelfrey.
The tall righthander threw seven shutout innings, and made a nifty slide to score on Jose Reyes' triple.
Reyes, out injured most of 2009, looked like his old self with four hits and that aura of intimidation on the basepaths.
This shot of the Mets dugout was a good test for the zoom lens on my new Canon digital SLR.
Above: newly recalled Mets rookie Ike Davis, who walked to start a 8th inning rally that was capped by pinch hitter Fernando Tatis' home run.
