We are only 5 games in from the All Star Break and the Mets are doing their best version of the west coast slide. They have lost 4 out of their first 5 on their 11 game road trip to the West Coast and have forgotten what it’s like to score runs . Last night they gave up 13 runs and only scored 1 run against the worst bullpen in the Majors. I hate when Gary makes mention of how bad the D-Backs pen is as the Mets basically do a belly flop against them.
Nice to have all the players playing but can we bust out against a team that is going nowhere this year. These are the teams we are suppose to beat and yes its only 1 game and if the Mets win the next 2 against the D-Backs then this game will be a distant memory. The D-backs are not as bad as the Indians and the Orioles when it comes to hitting but do we have to make it so easy for them?
Mets need to get the lead out since after the D-Backs they play the Dodgers and then the Red Hot Cardinals at home. Time to get a move on and win the games we are supposed to win. Pelfrey needs to get his head out of arse and remember what it’s like to get some sink on his fastball and pitch inside.
