If you didn’t stay up late to watch this one, you didn’t miss anything. The Mets made the nondescript Padres look like a good team. And the game was over in the third inning anyway. Livan Hernandez was horrible giving up 7 runs in 5 innings to a very weak San Diego lineup.

The Mets had very little offense and it didn’t help that Gary Sheffield couldn’t play. They only managed 8 hits and 4 walks. The only extra base hit was a double by Fernando Tatis. The impotent Mets offense couldn’t get much going against Padres rookie Clayton Richard.

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.
