I have to admit that I was shocked that Hisanori Takahashi had a great start, going 6 six innings. I never would have expected that out of him. He was really outstanding, especially considering that he got no run support.

Speaking of run support, the Mets had absolutely no offense again. Thursday's 10 run outburst seems like a mirage. They only put together four hits as a team, and two of them were in the ninth inning when Jason Bay singled and Ike Davis doubled him in.

That was the offense. Don’t blink or you might miss it.

Alex Cora blew the game in the seventh inning for the Mets. His costly throwing error allowed an unearned run to score that would have made a difference in the game.

The Mets and Yankees will play two more on national TV this weekend.
