The first-place Atlanta Braves come to town, and you have an oppurtunity to gain some ground in the race and possibly reach first place yourselves.
What do you do? Blow it. R.A. Dickey pitched 6.2 innings of four run ball, not a quality start, but a good enough start for you people to score. What do you do? Not score.
Things started going down the crapper when the calendar changed from June to July. And hearing that Ryota Igarashi has been optioned to St. Lucie does not make things any better. This means all of your bullpen arms are burnt out. As you saw on Tuesday, Jerry Manuel, it is possible for your starters to pitch complete games. When your pitcher is pitching a gem and it is the ninth inning, K-Rod doesn't necessarily need to come into the game.
I'm positive that anybody will preach to you that pitching wins games. Umm....without offense, pitching will get you nowhere, unless Johan Santana is fitted with a bionic arm and he pitches perfect games every fifth day.
I don't know what happened to the Mets of last week, but I miss those guys. You can take the crappy team back!
P.S.- David Wright Strikeout Counter: $9.70
P.P.S.- We need Carlos Beltran back.
P.P.P.S.- We don't need Oliver Perez back. K thanks bye.
