Be Thankful the Worst Lineup in Baseball Won a Game

Sure losing a series to the rival Phils is disappointing, but did you actually expect this rag tag lineup to produce 20+ runs? The Mets trotted out what is arguably the worst lineup in baseball on Saturday and Sunday. No Beltran. No Reyes. No Wright. No Davis. Nobody. When Willie Harris is your #3 hitter, you know you've got problems.

Somehow the Mets were still able to score enough runs that they should have won both games on Saturday and Sunday. But errors and horrendous pitching doomed them to lose.

The Phillies have the best record in baseball. You can't be too disappointed. At least the Mets avoided a sweep and were able to entertain you with some late inning comebacks and unexpected offensive explosions. It's clear this is not the team the Mets wanted to put in front of their fans. It's time to accept things as they are until the injury plague is lifted.

We need Moses in the worst way.
