Dodgers 2 – Mets 0 July 22, 2010

July 22, 2010 Los Angeles, CA..New York Mets starting pitcher Hisanori Takahashi  pitches in action during the Major League Baseball game against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium July 22, 2010 in Los Angeles, California..The Dodgers defeat the Mets 2-0.Louis Lopez/CSM.

The Mets lost their fourth straight game and it really should have been their seventh straight loss. Omar Minaya is with the team in LA now and told reporters before the game that Jerry Manuel’s job is safe. But not everyone’s job is safe on the Mets.

Hisanori Takahashi finally came back with a good start despite the loss going 7 innings and allowing only 2 runs. He allowed 1 run in the first inning and I was thinking “Here we go again”. But he recovered nicely and only allowed 3 hits and 2 walks in the game.

The Mets offense is the problem again. They only had 5 hits and 2 walks as a team. Surprisingly, Jeff Franoeur was the player of the game going 2 for 4. He was telling reporters before the game that he would welcome a trade for more playing time.

The misery continues for Mets fans as we watch our hopes of postseason play disappear before our eyes.

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.
