Mets Drop Second Series in a Row

Brewers 6 - Mets 5 (10)

Okay, it's official now. The ship may not be sinking, but it certainly is floundering. Pedro struck out 10, but gave up a couple of home runs and was lucky to escape with a no decision. Duaner Sanchez was better, but not great. The Mets played just a little sloppy, and left just enough runners on base to lose to a team that didn't play that well, either.

Honestly, I don't even feel like recapping the action. The Mets made my Mom unhappy on Mother's Day, along with any other true Mets fan that caught the action. It doesn't really bother me that Philly has closed to a game out, because they'll cool off, too. I'm more concerned about the Mets at this point. I'm concerned about an offense that can't find a level of consistency, and can't close the deal when they put a pitcher in trouble. I'm concerned about a bullpen that's a little overused and overexposed. I'm worried about the pressure on Tom Glavine to win Tuesday, knowing that Steve Trachsel and 2 even lesser pitchers will follow.

I've been following this game for a long time, and I know it's a long season. I'll avoid the temptation to make too much of a bad week. I don't know about the Mets, but I'm grateful for a day off tomorrow. Keep your chin up, Mets fans. You too, Mom.

"Pink Bats". No bats.We were looking for pitchers now were looking for hitters.Can your Mom swing a bat,all we need is a single now and then or just a sacrifice fly.I like the April Mets much better.We can blame bad umps and weather and sloppy play but bottom line,no timely hitting. In every game so far you can see the missed hit that could of turned the game around. Mom get your batting helmet on, we need some rbi,s.

They're just pressing some at the plate now, I think the bats will be fine without my Mom, Rev. At 72, she just can't get around on a major-league fastball anymore. She's great at laying on a guilt trip, though, so perhaps she can shame opposing pitchers into throwing her nothing but off-speed pitches.
