The Mets look horrible right now. The game was preceded by Omar Minaya saying that the Mets are investigating bad behavior and poor judgment by Tony Bernazard. Then the Mets go on to lose the game and the series to the lowly Nationals.
Mike Pelfrey recovered from his disasterous start in Atlanta to pitch a good game. He went 7 innings giving up only 3 runs.
Luis Castillo was ejected from the game for arguing a call at second base in the second inning. He bobbled the ball on a force out throw from David Wright. The ejection was very quick, so he must have said the magic word to the umpire.
As usual, the Mets had no offense. They only managed 4 hits in the game. The lineup they’re putting out there everyday now is so weak that they may end up falling below the Nationals in the standings before this season is over.
