John Maine began the season full of promise after winning 15 games last season. He’s won eight, but has been far from stellar. He has two no-decisions and a loss in his last three starts, not completing six in any of them.

Maine’s pitch count is way out of whack for the innings he’s going. He’s usually close to 100 around the fifth, and that’s what he should have after seven strong.
The Mets are going after 11 straight tonight.
