Marlins 7- Mets 4 April 28, 2009

42809Sorry for the late post on this one. Livan Hernandez put up a respectable start last night. It’s pretty much what you would expect from a fifth starter. He got into the sixth inning and gave up 3 runs, 2 of then earned. If he could do that consistently, the Mets would be in good shape this season.

On offense, Alex Cora had 2 hits, 2 runs, and 1 RBI subbing in for Luis Castillo. I thought it was interesting that Jerry Manuel put Cora at the top of the lineup when he always keeps Castillo at the bottom of the lineup. Manuel really has no faith in Castillo. David Wright has a nice 2 out RBI in the fifth inning. Hopefully, that will lead to good things for him.

Sean Green lost the game for the Mets in the seventh when he gave up 2 hits and 2 walks, which turned into 4 runs. Green has been pretty good generally this season but this was his second bad game raising his ERA to 8.49. We’ll have to keep an eye on that.

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.
