The Mets had six hits. That’s nine in two nights. I can crunch numbers all night long that explains the misery, but the bottom line is these guys aren’t hitting and the slump has become the story of the season.
Jose Reyes makes the Mets go, but seems listless. Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado are both under performing dramatically. David Wright is having an off-year. The Mets won last season because a lot of guys put it together. Those same guys aren’t doing it this year.
There will be a lot of talk in the next few weeks about picking up a big bat, but one bat won’t do it. The Mets can’t trade for what they need. It has to come from within.
I still have confidence in them, but it stems from their pitching and the overall weakness of the National League.
