Time To Get Going: Mets Lose Two of Three

After spending a couple of days dealing with finals and anxiety from other matters, I have decided to get my priorities back in order, and here I am to discuss the three game series with the Braves and the upcoming four-game set with the surging San Francisco Giants.

The Mets were one bad call away from being swept in this series, so I think that they should consider themselves lucky. Now they have to get their butts back in gear to take on the Bondsless Giants.

For a team that doesn’t have many guys who can hit, they have one awesome pitching staff. Although the Mets have historically hit Tim Lincecum well, he still is one of the most phenomenal pitchers in baseball since his inception. Randy Johnson is another guy who the Mets have had success against, and it seems like every day, you face a new quality starter from San Francisco.

Somebody really needs to sit Jose Reyes down and teach him how to run the bases. He has no baseball IQ, and he is lucky that he was bailed out in yesterday’s game. He is an excellent spark plug, but he makes some stupid decisions.

Ryan Church showed some signs of life, and he should be given more playing time.

More tomorrow. I promise the Stache’ is going to pick up soon.
