Blog Roundup: Sputtering to the Finish
The good news: Matt Harvey finished up a very promising abbreviated season with 7 innings of one-hit ball. The bad news: Josh Edgin, making his first (and maybe last) appearance as closer, gave up a two-run homer to Ryan Howard, which gave the Phillies a 3-2 win, and their second win of the 3 game series.
Once again, the Mets couldn’t score more than 2 runs. Their offense has been futile, especially at home. I believe the exact statistic is “they haven’t scored bupkis in ever.” It’s hard to imagine anything short of an overhaul of their lineup will fix their current conundrum. But that’s the task that faces Sandy Alderson this winter.
