Braves 8 – Mets 3 August 4, 2010

May 28, 2010- Milwaukee, WI. Miller Park..New York Mets pitcher Mike Pelfrey ..Milwaukee Brewers won over the New York Mets 2-0, taking the first game of the 3 game series against the Mets...Mike McGinnis / CSM.

It’s games like this that make me think that there’s little to no hope left for the 2010 season. Mike Pelfrey couldn’t make it through the fifth inning after giving up 5 runs (3 earned). He gave up back to back homers to Jones and McCann in the third inning. It’s like he completely lost his control and hasn’t been able to find it for more than a month.

It was one of the sloppiest games the Mets have played in a long time with 4 errors. They had 3 errors in the sixth inning. Jose Reyes had two throwing errors himself! This game was a complete joke.

The Mets offense only had 6 hits but did have 6 walks. Luis Castillo was 2 for 3 and seems to have found his slap hitting stroke recently.

The Mets lose the series in Atlanta, have an off-day tomorrow, then head to Philly. It’s hard to imagine them having a chance of winning a series in Philly.

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.
