COMMENTS: Jose Reyes needs to step it up. He enters the game on a 1-for-21 slide. … I would be adverse to dropping David Wright to fifth behind Carlos Delgado.

Mets Chat Room, Game #2: Needing Santana.

Johan Santana needs to earn his money tonight. The Mets have dropped two straight to the Phillies, and if they lose tonight they are tied for first and don’t think for a moment thoughts of the collapse won’t resurface, if they haven’t already.

“That’s why you have a Johan,’’ manager Jerry Manuel said. “We’re not quite clicking like we were. It’s unfortunate come home after a good road trip and not be clicking.

“Hopefully, Johan can keep us in the game.”

I would hope the expectations are higher than that.

What to see?

With no game, I think the movies are in my future today. I saw Batman the other day. Real dark. I’ll find something. Movies are always a great diversion. Suggestions welcome.

Too bad there’s not a “24” marathon on. That’s perfect for when the weather is lousy.

Anyway, hope you all have a good day. Talk with you later.

About Last Night.

Well, it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that if you don’t get any runs you’re not going to win. Nothing gets by be. You have to write it off as one of those things.

No game today, which gives Pedro Martinez an extra day of rest. It couldn’t hurt.

Frankly, I’m a little bit worried about Martinez. It’s just not there for him with his fastball. He says he doesn’t care about velocity, but if I can outrun the pitches to the plate there’s a problem.

Should the playoffs start tomorrow, would Martinez be in the rotation? Performance and his physical questions say no. His experience and the hope to lightning in a bottle says yes.
