These things happen. They were going to wait this one out until whenever because they didn’t want a doubleheader tomorrow. Both teams faced the same obstacle, but the delay took a bigger bite out of the Mets. It’s a shame they didn’t have any alternatives. Of course, that comes with having only one trip into a city and with few off-days because of interleague and the unbalanced schedule.
Bad night all around. Not only did Steve Trachsel fail in his bid to win eight straight starts, but by coming out after the delay he burned any chance of coming back into the rotation earlier. Mets will be back out here in a few hours.
