Two Out Of Three Is Bad

Nationals 4 - Mets 3

I don't have much time for this today. I have yet another date with a paintbrush. I'm not sure I have much to say anyway, since our New York Metropolitans have managed to stumble through their second loss in three games to the worst team in the division.

My colleague Joyce earlier looked at Randolph's questionable decision to allow Oliver Perez to bat with one out and the bases loaded in the sixth inning with the Mets trailing 3-2. I understood his desire to go deeper with Perez, but I didn't like it. Then again, the Mets had countless other scoring opportunities and didn't cash in on them, either.

The Mets will need to pick up their game against the Nationals or it could really cost them this year. Other than that, what is there really to say?

Perez did a nice job recovering from a rocky first inning. For the third time in four outings he didn't allow a walk. I think that it is now safe to look at the 7-walk game against the Phillies as a blip rather than an indication of regression.

The Mets have another chance to prove they can beat the Nationals tonight. Hope springs eternal.

About Mike: I was the original writer on this web site, actually its only writer for the first 15 months of existence. Although I am grateful for the excellent contributions of my fellow writers here, I have no plans of stepping back into strictly an editorial role. I started this thing in the first place because I love to write and I love the Mets, and blogging here keeps me somewhat sane. If you haven't had enough already, more bio info can be found here.

The bench has saved us from an embarassing week. I'd like to see the big guns get it going tomorrow nad through the Florida series. It would be just in time for our annual explosion in Arizona next weekend.

Salman - It's not the same old D-backs, though. They have a lot of good young players on that club.
