Something happen to the Mets on the way to Arizona. The Mets were hanging by a thread in the Wild Card race and now have been swept by the D Backs for the 2nd time in 2 years in Arizona and now have lost 5 straight. The Mets couldnt capitaize on the fact that the Braves actually lost 2 games over the weekend and now stand 10.5 games out of the Wild Card race. Guys in the clubhouse seem to sense the doom.
The Mets have been hovering around .500 all year so to think they were going to put up a charge is a tough road to understand. They have played tough all year but still were not able to break away from the .500 mark . As they go into San Diego they just to need to get in there heads 1 day at a time and just continue to play the kind of ball Mets fans have apprecited. With a couple of little caveats.
Dump Igarashi. Did yo see him walking off the field last night after he couldn't get a out and gave up a run? He was totally defeated and couldn't get his fastball over. He needs to go.
Stop placing Parnell in the 9th or in any situation that is pressure situation. I am tired of watching his straight as string fastball get hit after he cant get his breaking pitch over. The guy has a 2 bit head with his flame thrower arm . He has had 2 years of showing he doesn't have the make up. time to move on.
Josh Thole. How many times do we have to watch this kid try to stop a ball in the dirt by backhanded it? Enough. Bring up Nickeas . I don't care if cant hit. He saves us runs which is more then you can say for the defensively challenged Thole.
