“I’m going to cut to the chase here. The Mets should win their upcoming series against the Angels…….I’ve got the Mets favored in two of the three pitching match ups as I am giving an edge to the Angels in the Haren vs. Pelfrey game. Big Pelf should have a good showing but I would be silly not to give Haren and his 2.54 ERA the nod.” – Me
Boy, the Mets couldn’t have been farther off from what I expected if they tried. Did I do something to anger them? Not only did the Mets lose this series, but the result of all three starting pitching match ups was the exact opposite of what I thought would happen.
Today’s game was indubitably disappointing. The Mets were never in it, largely due to Jon Niese flat-out not having it. Quite the futile feeling as a fan. Thankfully, there have not been too many contests like this in the 2011 season.
Maybe they’re a little gassed. After all, this was their 13th game in as many days. Hopefully, tomorrow’s off day will provide some rest and they can mount yet another assault on breaking the .500 barrier.
