The Mets were swept by the Braves after a 6-1 loss on Sunday. Of course they faced a guy who hasn’t pitched in 2 years and shut them down for 5 innings. Ben Sheets who has had more injuries then Jason Bay started his first game in the majors in 2 years and had a fastball topping out at 91 and baffling the Mets. Johan held his own until to the fifth inning where the Bravos plated 6 and that was it. No comeback against the Braves bullpen.
The Mets now head to Washington where the Nationals who are 18 games over .500 and now we wonder if this is the beginning of the end for the Magic Mets. The Mets have been pretty resourceful all year . We have to wait until Tuesday night before the Mets can get that weekend series off their rear end mirror.
Lucas Duda will head to NY to get his hammy check out that has been bothering for 10 days. If he goes on the DL look for the Mets probably promote Jason Bay to take his roster sport oh yea.. Can you feel the excitement ?
Mike Baxter is starting his re hab and should be back soon.
