For the record, Strasburg lasted five innings, giving up 4 hits, 2 runs, and 3 walks while striking out five. It's not a bad start; this means that even on a off-day, Strasburg is still a beast. Scary.
Pretty much every closer we've ever had has let us down in one way or another. Sure, K-Rod has made us crap in our pants before, but he was still getting the saves and all that jazz.
Today, K-Rod recorded one out and the Mets lost the game on a Pudge Rodriguez walk-off single. Well, at least it's somebody we've heard of.
The highlight of this game was R.A. Dickey. He pitched the seven innings, allowing the two unearned runs. He allowed six hits on two walks while striking out four. Some guys had good days offensively and there were some pretty sweet defensive plays, but I'm too pissed off at this team to write about them.
We're losing to a last-place team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Mets try to regain ay respect that may be left for them tomorrow afternoon. Hisanori Takahashi is pitching. Yeah.
