You figured the losing streak might end with a bang.
It looked that way at first when the Mets took a 9-1 lead with R.A. Dickey cruising again and David Wright clubbing two homers. At the time I was thinking this was a lead even the Mets’ bullpen couldn’t blow. However, it sure looked as if they were trying.
This isn’t about the bullpen. It is about the Mets getting up from the mat. Look, I don’t know if this will jump start them and they’ll make up the ground they’ve recently lost.
The most important thing I took from today’s game is what Ike Davis said when it was over. When asked if it was important the Mets go into their upcoming homestand with a win, he said the losing streak was behind them and the thing to do is focus on the future and he only spoke of the Dodgers.
There is a lot of season remaining, and as the Mets showed us in 2007 leads can disappear quickly. Maybe it can again.
