I never would have guessed before the game that Dillon Gee would be terrible and Jason Bay would be great tonight. The Mets have now lost three of four games on this home stand to west coast AL teams. It’s an abysmal showing for a team that’s supposed be taking on the fiery personality of Terry Collins.

Gee gave up 4 runs in 4 innings on 3 hits and 6 walks. He couldn’t find the plate and only threw 45 strikes in 87 pitches. It was his worst start of the season by far.

The Mets had very little offense going with only 5 hits and 5 walks in the game. Bay had 3 of those hits going 3 for 3 with a long home run to left field and a triple off the top of the center field wall. He finally woke up! I hope that’s a sign of good things to come from Bay. That’s about the only positive that the Mets can take from this game.

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.
