If the Mets were a college football team they would slip in the polls because it wasn’t a pretty win.
But, it was their fifth straight for a season high. After Philly, the Mets could go home 6-4, which is remarkable.
Not so remarkable is Oliver Perez, with 15 walks in his last three starts. He said the most important thing is the Mets won, which sounds good.
Still, he needs to wake up or he’ll pitch himself out of the playoff rotation.
If I am naming the rotation now it would be hard to put him in it.
