Mets Sweep Fish Behind Sosa

Mets 6 - Marlins 4
from Sunday, May 27, 2007

Jorge Sosa bounced back from his awful start against the Braves to help the Mets sweep their weekend series against the Marlins. He was throwing strikes and dominating through the first four innings of the game allowing only 2 hits and a run, but then seemed to tire and lose effectiveness after that.

The Marlins scored in the fifth on back-to-back hits and a ground ball, but a double play got Sosa out of that jam. Then, up 5-2 in the sixth, a double and a walk brought the tying run to the plate. Both Miguel Cabrera and Josh Willingham flied out deep to LF, just missing evening things up, and Sosa's day was done after 5-2/3 innings and only 87 pitches.

Sosa has certainly given the Mets a shot in the arm from the fifth starter slot, but I can't help but think that he is better suited as a reliever in the long run if he stays with the Mets. In the meantime, Willie Randolph would do well to keep him on a short leash.

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.
