Mets Take No Offense to San Francisco

Giants 6 - Mets 2

Maybe I've just been up too late too many nights, but the Mets losses on this road trip are starting to take on a depressing similarity. One of the oldest truisms in baseball is that your team never looks worse than when they're not hitting. The Mets are having very little luck getting their offense underway early. When Tom Glavine gave up a 3-run homer to Moises Alou in the first inning, the Mets were facing another uphill climb. You suspect when things are going well again offensively they'll be able to rescue a pitcher from a bad outing, but not right now.

Kaz Matsui had a couple of hits to lead the offense, such as it was. David Wright still looks a little lost at the plate, and Willie might want to consider giving him a day off. Other than that, I got nothing here. Counting tonight's game the Mets are 2-5 in their last 7, and need to find a way to get it going again.

Trachsel tries to stop the bleeding tomorrow night 10:15 ET. Jamey Wright takes the hill for the Giants. Thankfully, this is the last late night game of this trip, as Wednesday's game is a 3:35 PM ET start.

Why was Willie walking Bonds in the first inning? Did Peterson come up with some statistic that Willie found interesting? Worst case, Bonds homers and 2-0 not three. I dont' think they have seen Sports Center Sports Nite on SNY lately! Bonds is batting something like .220 with 1 homer and 2 RBI's! Alou was doing better. That was stupid and they paniced!

As for the hitting, no one is doing too much. They all went cold at the same time! We knew they couldn't keep it up that long but this is scary. Hopefully they put Beltran on the DL and bring someone up because Beltran is just taking up space. I really don't want Mileage up because he's going to play 2 weeks and then back to the Minors. Unless he plays for Floyd, but he should really play everyday for now. Don't tease him.

But if your a Met fan, your a Met fan and still believe! Its not even May yet and we are still up 3 games!
Go Mets!!!!

I thought it was a mistake to walk Bonds, but if he didn't and Bonds homered he would be criticized for not walking him.

I'm just rooting for this team to bust out of the slump and play decent ball again. As for Milledge, the reason you would bring him up if Beltran goes on the DL is that he is a true CF. But you're right, they seem disinclined to bring him up for a couple of weeks.
