The bad news for the Mets is that Mike Pelfrey didn’t have it again this afternoon. He made it into the fifth inning, when the Braves scored all 4 runs, but he didn’t get an out in that inning. He had runners on frequently giving up 12 hits and 3 walks.

Hisanori Takahashi put in a nice effort in relief throwing 3 scoreless innings. I really think that long relief is going to be the highest and best use of his skills.

The Mets only put together 4 hits and 3 walks in the game. And Angel Pagan had 3 of those hits and 2 stolen bases. He just makes plays game after game. There’s no way they can sit him down when Carlos Beltran comes back.

The Mets lost the second straight home series today. They’ll try to avoid the sweep behind Johan Santana tomorrow afternoon.

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.
