The Offense Takes Another Night Off

Phillies 4 - Mets 2 (11)
Played Tuesday, June 5, 2007

Sorry for the late post, it was a very busy day with work. Not much to say about last night's game, anyway. Carlos Beltran can be forgiven for being a little rusty, but when the Mets get their walking wounded back into the fold it may be time to move Carlos Delgado back out of the fourth spot and leave him lower in the order until he goes into a real hot streak. After putting a nice mini-run together from May 23-29, Carlos has oh-fors in 5 of his 6 games.

Tough break again for Tom Glavine. At some point you hope they might actually score some runs for him. If not, there's always next year to join the 300 win club, right Tommy?

I can't think of anything more frustrating to root for in sports than a baseball team that is enduring a hitting slump, except maybe for any team that has as much trouble winning at home as the Mets have had this season.

Tom Glavine (5-3)

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.

DITTO....check please... Im done... I believed more in last years team then this years team. I am no better then they are right now, I seem to not care as much? I need something, some fire, a brawl,a trade, a win would be nice. This team is becoming boring, laid back zzzzzz. HEY snap out of it. Last year, to me seemed more exciting, we even shared how good a fight was in us when we lost. Is this team so good that they can turn it on and turn it off when they want? ( we can make it up on the road. ) I know last year in the lean times, we were asking anybody if they can swing a bat to step up, but something is differant this year? Or is it just me and I am in a slump too. Last night when I came home and turned the t.v. on it was 3-2 Phillys, I turned it off to watch something else. My fire is going out. Somethings wrong. I think I have to go on the road for awhile.

Al - I agree with everything you said here. I'm writing a piece about it now.
