This post has actual content

The Mets lost their game and winning streak last night. If you had to out the blame on one guy it would be John Maine. He has been ineffective in his last 4 starts or so and just couldn't find the strike zone in the 4th inning last night. He gave up a couple of lucky hits but ultimately couldn't find his way out of the inning. I am not sure he woulda been able to find his way outta a paper bag at that point. The bullpen didn't give up any runs and got over their hiccup, at least for a day, after three runs two nights ago.

The hitting looked like it did before the streak but it always looks that way against Bronson Arroyo who absolutely OWNS the Mets. Carlos Beltran was stranded on third after a leadoff (I think) triple in the late innings. Jose Reyes continued to suck and has gone 0-for-9 since the break.

The Mets can't let this loss get to them and hopefully they can get right back on track tonight. I just heard David talk after the game and he sounded like he was going to cry. If he needs somebody to talk to I am always open. Oh wait, he already HAS a girlfriend!

Let's Go Mets!
