The latest unhappy recap of a Mets game can be found in The Journal News and at www.Lohud.com/sports. Jerry Manuel thought the 9-6, 10-inning loss to the Cubs was probably the Mets’ toughest loss, considering where they are now with just four games left.
There’s also a Mets notebook topped by the saga of Luis Castillo. Manuel gave the struggling second baseman a break from the fans’ incessant booing, which has become counterproductive for the team because it has gotten into Castillo’s head. There’s also an item on the activation of John Maine, plus items on Ryan Church’s problems and Daniel Murphy’s continued success.
It’s supposed to be Pedro Martinez vs. Rich Harden in the series finale tonight, but the forecast is soggy, as is the forecast for tomorrow’s series opener at Shea against the Marlins. So stay tuned.
