Last night’s doubleheader loss to the Milwaukee Brewers just about said it all about the 2010 Mets. On the day after an emotional, come-from-behind ninth-inning victory, the Mets responded with the poorest of efforts. In the first game Jon Niese hit a wall, showing he has more work to do, and the makeshift bullpen couldn’t hold down the Brewers.
The Mets rallied, but it fell short.
In the nightcap, as he has all year, RA Dickey gave the Mets a chance to win, but the offense went into hiding.
Oh, during the festivities, the Mets learned Carlos Beltran’s right knee is sore and he’ll be shut down for the remainder of the season. Beltran being hurt again only adds to the growing list of questions for the offseason.
The Mets play Milwaukee tonight, then close the season with three games against the Washington Nationals. They must run the table to finish .500.
