Mets Chat Room: Wrapping up the Braves Edition.

Sorry for the late post. The boys try to wrap up their series on an up note this afternoon against the Braves. Damn that split yesterday. They let the Santana game get away. The sweep would have been sweet, but they came back strong which was a real positive sign. Losing like that, then coming back with a rookie, could have made for an ugly day.

A couple of notes:

-Damion Easley aggravated his right quad yesterday and underwent a MRI. We should know the results during the game. It doesn’t look like he’ll be available for the first couple of days of the Washington series.

-Look for Brandon Knight to start Wednesday in Washington.

Here is the Met lineup:

SS Jose Reyes
LF Daniel Murphy
3B David Wright
1B Carlos Delgado
CF Carlos Beltran
RF Ryan Church
2B Luis Castillo
C Brian Schneider
LH Oliver Perez

Looking forward to talking with you throughout the game.-JD

About Last Night …. It wasn’t last year.

A show of hands please … how many thought of last season when Oliver Perez morphed back into the “Bad Ollie,” last night?

Yup. Me too. Only they didn’t lose. Carlos Delgado wouldn’t let them. That Perez pitched lousy isn’t a good sign … that they didn’t unravel was a definite positive.

I also liked that David Wright and Jose Reyes showed signs of offensive life.

I’ll talk with you throughout the day.
