Marlins 3 – Mets 1 April 8, 2010

New York Mets Angel Pagan reaches first base in the second inning against the St. Louis Cardinals at Citi Field in New York

All spring long Jerry Manuel talked about the need to get out to a good start this season. This wasn’t the way to do it, losing a series at home to the Marlins. It’s really disappointing to see. The keys to the game were:

  • No offense- The Mets only had 7 hits and Angel Pagan and Jeff Francoeur combined for 4 of them
  • Jon Niese- He pitched pretty well going 6 IP giving up 3 ER, but not good enough to get a win

The Nationals come to town tomorrow for a three game series which is critical that the Mets take, if it can be critical in April. What a bad way for the Mets to start the season…

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.
