The Mets suffered a crushing loss in their series-opener against the Phillies, as their unreliable bullpen squandered another lead. The final culprit was Scott Schoeneweis after Luis Ayala blew his first save as a Met.
The club continues to debate who will start when over the course of this road trip, but it appears Jon Niese could have the chance to pitch next Tuesday in Milwaukee. There are other updates, including Jerry Manuel declaring Ryan Church as an everyday player, an update on the location of Marlon Anderson, and the team’s thoughts on the arrival of instant replay.
Hey, Mets fans â€” at least you’re not A-Rod.
