The Mets have lost four straight, and have been swept by a team at Shea Stadium for the first time since late in the 2005 season. It seems odd to me how a team, close to last year’s, is doing so great on the road, yet so horrible at home, opposite to what it was last season. Valentin came back, having a great night at the plate. The Mets were able to hit back-t0-back home runs by Delgado, Wright and Lo Duca, but unfortuneately, were all solo homers.
Billy Wagner blew his first save since I even remember… maybe that Yankee series last year at Shea. I don’t know, but I don’t put him at fault completely, because I don’t think he is a great pitcher in any way or form when he pitches more than one inning of relief. He also didn’t lose the game, he only gave up one run, which tied it, not lose it, and the Mets should have hit better and won it in the ninth.
Scott Scheoeweis, who I hate now, has been doing bad, and complains of arm problems, but I don’t care. If you can pitch in a game, you better pitch well. I think the Mets need to ship him out immediately.
Tonight at 7 PM, the Mets play their second interleague series of the season, which is against the Detroit Tigers in Detroit.
The Mets are lucky to have the Braves struggling too, as if it wasn’t for them, the Mets probably would be in second place.
