The Mets were out of this game in the second inning. You could have just turned off the TV at that point. Hisanori Takahashi was awful again giving up 6 runs in 2.2 innings. His ERA is up to 4.69 now and he just can’t stay in the rotation anymore. The Mets need to find another solution whether it’s Pat Misch or someone else.

The Mets offense had 7 hits and 2 walks. They didn’t score a run until the seventh and it was starting to look like they might get shut out for a third straight game. Ike Davis turned it on going 2 for 4 with 2 home runs including his first one into McCovey Bay. Carlos Beltran was also 2 for 4 with a single and a triple. It was nice to see him leg out a triple on his bad knee but he still looks slow in the outfield.

The Mets will try to avoid a four game sweep tomorrow afternoon behind Johan Santana.

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.
