The Mets are obviously in a quandary right now, but the one thing they shouldn't do is panic. Yes Fernando Nieve had a not-so-good start last night, but they had a nice rally going and lost only 10-6. That to me is a good loss not giving up until the end.
What really made me happy is the Mets didn't say "oh no a grand slam is hit" so let's not even try to come back. Tonight we have Santana going which gives the Mets a chance to win despite their struggles.
Another thing is that the Mets shouldn't give up the future just because we are in trouble. Yes it is true the Mets can't lose this season to the Phillies again because it would be just dreadful, but I think the only solution is to the Mets problems is to acquire someone inexpensive or wait it out. Yes, I've heard of Adam Dunn and Holliday, but the Mets really won't get them because the A's and the Nationals will want F-Mart, Parnell and maybe Murphy. The problem is the Mets' future will be hurt. Don't try and fix what is now our problem and destroy the future.
