David Wright’s streak of hits in 26 consecutive games ended last night. Unless a player is closing in on Pete Rose’s NL record 44 games, or Joe DiMaggio’s major league record 56 games it really doesn’t matter. Who cares?
The Mets dropped one to the Braves last night 7-3, moving to 2nd place behind those same Braves. I know that Tim Hudson was the story, pitching an excellent game, but what about the Mets questionable pitching? Pelfrey was bad, so was Feliciano and Burgos showed us why the lowly Royals couldn’t wait to get rid of him. The Mets pitching is really suffering without Pedro Martinez and Duaner Sanchez. They’ll outhit the bad teams with their excellent lineup, but they’ll struggle against teams that can pitch.
