Series Recap: Mets Drop 2 of 3 To The Fish

Posted on by Kerel Cooper

The New York Mets lost 2 of 3 to the Florida Marlins, dropping their record to 9-12 on the season. I am so glad that April baseball is over. Maybe the Mets can get off to a fresh start in May. Below is my series recap.

If your having trouble viewing this video, try the Quicktime version

Series Take-Aways:

  • Game Three Seems to be an issue: The Mets are now 0-7 in the third games of series. Finishing strong seems to be an issue for this team.
  • Give Wright a Day Off: If Wright isn’t grounding into a DP, he’s striking out. Sometimes when a player is struggling, the best thing to do is give that payer a day off. I understand that’s a difficult thing to do right now since both Castillo and Delgado are injured but if Manuel gets a chance to give Wright a day off, he should.
  • Lack of Support for Santana: Santana is 3-1 on the season. He’s a Murphy error and JJ Putz 8th inning blow up away from being 5-0. With all the other starters struggling, it’s that much more important that the Mets win Santana starts.

Who’s Hot and Who’s Not:

  • Who’s Hot? How about Carlos Beltran? Beltran is batting near .400 and now has a 12 game hitting streak.
  • Who’s Not? How about JJ Putz? 6BB in 11IP. Not good for your set up guy.

Next Up For The Mets:

  • The Mets travel to the Phillies for a three game weekend series. The Phils are currently one of the hottest teams in baseball. If the Mets can win 2 out of 3 that would be fantastic.

    The stat again of being 0-7 is painful to read. Beltran is on fire with his hitting streak but today leaving 14 on base is the same old problem not to mention the pen. It is only April however as you point out, Phila is hot right now. Mets have the talent but just cannot play well together.

    Great post Kerel

    Thanks for the comments lvadgal. Hopefully the Mets can turn this around in May, take 2 out of 3 this weekend and win a 3rd game :)
