As the 9th inning came to a close, Gary Cohen vehemently declared that the Mets had just lost a series to the team with the worst record in baseball. The statement is obviously true, but the manner in which Cohen communicated the fact led me to believe that even this stellar broadcaster has seen enough of this team's pitiful play.
I honestly don't know why the Mets even bother finishing games when they fall behind by more than one run. There should be a mercy rule like in little league. If the Mets fall behind by two or more runs, the umps should just call the game.
Mike Pelfrey bounced back from his last start, but Josh Willingham just owned him tonight and it ultimately cost the Mets the game. Angel Pagan continues to impress, but unfortunately the Mets can only score runs when the other team makes mistakes.
The Mets should bat Pagan cleanup at this rate.
A much needed off day (is there any other kind this year?) arrives on Thursday. Lets you dwell on losing to the Nationals for an extra day.
