…. but it is another to give away a game like the Mets did last night. Inexcusable. If Jerry Manuel didn’t read them the riot act then he’s not doing his job as manager.
How in the hell do you miss third base? All those missed opportunities …. they could have won the game three times over. It’s one thing to blow a good pitching performance from Johan Santana. I’m used to that. It’s another to blow one from Tim Redding. When will they get another one?
In the original post I said the Mets’ weaknesses would be exposed during the rest of this road trip. Well, some got exposed last night.
Ryan Church got a couple of hits. Maybe he’s showing signs. But, the baserunning was unforgivable.
Jeremy Reed, of course, is not the answer at first base. I don’t know who is, but why not give Daniel Murphy a shot. He can’t do any worse.
All teams have stinkers, but last night was maddening because we’ve seen it all too often from the Mets where it all unravels.
And, the pitching match-ups for the rest of this series favors the Dodgers. Then they go to Boston. They are on the verge of giving back all they’ve accomplished the past 10 days.
