Beat Like A Rented Mule

by

Pretty much a pointless game tonight as the Mets got lit up like Tom at dollar beer night.  Fortunately, we have avoided this type of loss for the most part this season.

Here’s a run down of what I took from this game.  I’ve got to warn you, it isn’t pretty:

  • This might have been Manny Acosta’s last appearance in a while.  If the Mets stay true to form, I could easily see him being designated for assignment.  I can’t say I’d be too heart broken if this were to happen.  He isn’t a viable option in the bullpen anymore.
  • The Rangers reminded me of what power in a lineup can do to an opponent.  Three bombs with runners on sealed any hope of the Mets clawing back in this one.
  • It seemed as if the Mets started this contest down six runs.  They just never appeared to be remotely close in this game.
  • Mike Pelfrey was disappointing tonight.  His up and down 2011 continues.  Wave bye bye to his quality start streak which ended at three.
  • On a positive note, Jason Bay went 3 for 4 (all singles).  Maybe he is slowly inching closer to the day when he will produce a few extra base hits.

Well, at least this means the Mets have only two more games remaining against the defending AL Champs.  I am still holding on to some hope that the Mets can steal one in Arlington tomorrow or Sunday.

    Manny got abused. I was wishing Terry had pulled him earlier. But I guess its better to know how the non confidence is shown in his inability.

      I also think Collins was throwing in the towel and trying not to waste any other arms in a blow out.

      Looks like Carrasco is not too far behind Manny as far as where he stands with Terry.
