Braves 7 – Mets 1 July 19, 2009

The Mets lose three out of four to the Braves in Atlanta this week. To add insult to injury (literally), Fernando Nieve had to leave the game on a cart in the top of the second inning with a strained quad muscle. He was legging out a grounder and came up lame after crossing first base. Get ready for Jon Niese‘s season debut.

The Mets offense only had 6 hits and 1 walk in the game. There is no offense from this team. Daniel Murphy (hitting .238) was batting third in the order. He couldn’t even stick with most teams in the league and he’s hitting third for the Mets. This is beyond ugly.

The Mets head to Washington, then Houston.

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.
