Cook Four Hits Mets For 4-1 Win

The Mets lose another road series on the eve of Willie Randolph’s meeting with ownership in New York. The Mets have now lost 6 of their last 7 games and looked completely uninspired today making two ugly errors in the field and more baserunning problems.

Aaron Cook went through the Mets like a buzzsaw today giving up only four hits and one walk over nine innings.

John Maine wasn’t particularly good but kept the Mets in the game. He went six innings giving up four runs (three earned). That should be enough to keep the Mets in the game in Colorado.

Jose Reyes let a ball go through his legs with a man on first that would have been a double play. That led to a three run homer by Seth Smith in the fourth inning and that was all that the Colorado Rockies needed today.

Reyes was also picked off first. The second time in this series that he’s been picked off. He’s playing like his head is in the clouds.

Carlos Delgado also had an ugly error at first base. For both Reyes and Delgado it was their sixth error of the season.

The Mets head home tonight to begin a three game series with division leader Florida Marlins.

    I do not enjoy writing about the Yankees, however, I will discuss their happenings if it has something to do with our NY Mets. I previously wrote about Willie's lack of emotion and his anti-ejection attitude. During this time we had the cross-town rival manager, Joe Girardi, wear his emotion on his sleeve and eventually became a spectator after being ejected. The Yankees won that game – and are currently riding a 5-game winning streak. And, to top it all off – and prove that Girardi's actions had at least a small affect on his team – the Yankees displayed the sort of fight and unwillingness to lose – down 5-2 in the 8th-inning before fighting back to win 6-5 – which I’m still waiting to see from the Metropolitans. I would much rather speak of the Mets in a positive light, yet, there’s not much illumination when the team is unable to put a 2-game winning streak together.

    Awful defense. Terrible offense. The only thing we missed in this stinker of a game was if Heilman came in to make the game a laugher. This is a very disappointing season so far.
