Isnt it great. The Mets are not hitting and they face lights out Adam Wainwright tonight who has a ERA in July under 1.00 Sweet ! The Cardinals, winners of there last 7 out of 10 have a 1 game lead over the Reds. Then we have the Mets who despite a horrible west coast Road trip still are 14 games over .500 at home . Now the Mets numbers in July offensively are pretty horrible.
According to ESPN NY here is a sample.
Jeff Francoeur .157
Carlos Beltran .167
Alex Cora .180
Jason Bay .194
Ike Davis .217
Now Bay has feasted on Wainwright in the past with 6 hits in 18 at bats and Blanco who seems to get a hit every time he plays has 4 hits in 7 at bats against Wainwright who has not pitched in NY since a playoff game in 2006 which escapes my mind. Maybe Beltran will sit.
