The Mets mailed it in yesterday afternoon on a blistering July day with a 6-2 loss to the Cardinals who were happy the Mets miscues made it a easy win. Not to happy about it . These guys get paid big $$ to play and I really don't care how hot it is. This team wants to show that it might have a chance to make playoffs then games like yesterday cant happen. Pathetic.
The Mets could have Reyes,Wright,Beltran and Bay in the lineup tonight for the first time since Mid may. Of course we dont know for how long with every day bringing another Carlos Beltran rumor. The minute Beltran goes marks the end of the 2011 season for the Mets. Of course most believe this year the Mets were lucky to play .500 ball. Let me remind you that the Mets were 7 up with 17 play in 08 and lost so regardless of the Bravos lead its not insurmountable. If the Mets cant get a top notch player for Beltran they should just give the Mets fans something to enjoy in the dog days of August. A team that can still make come backs and play inspired baseball.
Sorry but I have no faith in a team that has Wright and Bay as there go to guys once Beltran gets traded possibly to the Phillies. Check out our latest poll and let us know what you think about the Mets using the Braves or Phillies as a trading partner.
