Maybe there is something about our uniforms that causes players to miss good pitches.

There were some Mets fans sitting behind me on Wednesday that thought the Mets 3rd base coach (Sandy Alomar Sr) was Roberto Alomar...

We have a day off tomorrow so perhaps Lannan can be stretched out a little.

Actually there is no need to bring him back out and be forced to face the meat of their order. Plus the game is only 2-0.

Lannan has yielded 1 ER in his last 20 innings pitched. If we can get 2 more like him we'll be fine.

They should've fouled James earlier to force him to make free throws under pressure and they would've had more time to counter.

That strategy is unorthodox but it would've given them a better chance.

That's better than giving up a wide-open 3... This series is over.

Our offense is horrible. One can only hope that they get it started this week against 6 terrible SPs in a row. 

Ayala scares me.

Lannan was fabulous today. He walked a few in the early innings but otherwise he was excellent.

0-2 count and then walks him on 4 straight pitches.  That was a strike though. freak Montague.

Tomorrow's day off won't affect our rotation but the one a week from tomorrow could impact it. Chico will surely get one more start but if he sucks again we can actually skip his following start. That could give Balester two more starts in AAA to see if he deserves a promotion.
