The Mets are off today, licking their wounds from a tremendous road trip. Not a lot of scoring, not a lot of good pitching, and paging the bullpen ….
Billy Wagner goes for a MRI tomorrow, and we have to suspect more than a few of those seven blown saves have to be health related.Â If they don’t fix the pen they are in trouble, but we’ve known that all along.
All that other stuff, not hitting with runners in scoring position. Only playing with two legit outfielders, and one of them coming off the bench. Questions about John Maine’s shoulder, and Pedro Martinez’s durability.
I keep thinking back at the run they had a couple of weeks ago, and how much it reminded me of 2006. But, it’s not 2006 anymore, and this isn’t that team.
