Armas Gets a "W", Pedro Is Hit Hard Again

Game 83: Mets 7 - Cardinals 4 (Tuesday)
Game 84: Cardinals 8 - Mets 7 (Wednesday)

As nice as Tuesday night's victory was, I had the feeling that they would follow it up with a loss. To their credit, they fought back from a big deficit, and Pedro overcame an awful first inning to at least give them a chance.

I wish they displayed the kind of fight they did last night more consistently. It would make this team a lot easier to root for. On the other hand, as they continue to flounder around a playoff spot seems further away every day. 84 games into the season and two games under .500, there are no moral victories for the Mets or for Pedro.

I still say whatever chance they have of still contending is wrapped up in Pedro returning to form.

Note: I am not going to do a stat sheet for Tony Armas at this time. If he makes another start I will create one for him.

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.
