Mets Game 96: Loss to Dodgers
Dodgers 2 Mets 0
Anyone else feel like they are in a time warp, sent back to the 1970s? Anyone else expecting to see Jon Matlack take the hill, with John “The Hammer” Milner playing first base and Jerry Grote behind the plate?
It sure feels like that, as the Mets’ anemic bats were shut out again, and again a brilliant pitching performance was wasted.
This time, though, you couldn’t blame Jason Bay, since he wasn’t in the lineup. And you couldn’t blame Jeff Francoeur, since he had two of the Mets’ five hits. And further, the Mets lost despite having Josh Thole, Ike Davis, and Chris Carter in the lineup.
Can it get any worse?
I can’t even pin this one on Carlos Beltran, since he had the day off.
