Pirates 5 – Mets 1
The Mets have not hit a homerun in 9 games. The 15 hits yesterday and the 17 hits the day before were great, but it is tough to string hits together on a consistent basis. To top it off, we learned today that the only real slugger on the team, Ike Davis, may not be back until after the All Star break. Chalk up the loss of Ike to another misdiagnosed injury by the Mets medical staff. This is a joke, right?
R.A. Dickey pitched a strong game but it all came crashing down in the 8th inning.
Terry Collins praised Jason Bay after the game for running out a weak grounder. Mets Blob wanted to reach through the TV and pick Tiny Tot Terry Collins up by his collar and shake some sense into him. Let’s stop making excuses for Bay.
