Not hard to figure out. Jason Vargas put the Mets in a 6-2 hole after two innings and for all practical purposes the game was over two innings later. Take comfort in knowing this might be a one- or two-start deal with Vargas.
-A bad game for Joe Smith, who gave up a grand slam homer to Ryan Spilborghs. Three of the runs went to Vargas, but it was still bad.
-Aaron Sele got in the game. No, he didn’t need a map to the mound.
-Ramon Castro homered. Paul Lo Duca had the night off, and not playing had nothing to do with his suspension hearing. Maybe tomorrow on that.
