Three Up and Three Down
It’s so hard to make sense of the latest Mets wins and losses because most of the roster is off to the WBC.
However, there are still jobs to be won and lost.
Today the Mets split a pair of games, they had a 8-3 loss to the Nationals and then beat the University of Michigan 18-7. Here are some highlights and lowlights.
Marlon Anderson stays hot and homered today while going 2-4. He is bating close to .400 and is starting to secure his place on this team.
Bobby Kielty continues to impress with a 2-4 day and two walks. He also scored two runs and drove in three. Will it be enough?
Rob Mackowiak drove in six runs with a bases-loaded double in the second inning and a three-run home run in the fifth. He also had a stolen base.
Tim Redding never made it out of his scheduled inning. He allowed five runs on five hits including two homeruns, and was only able to get one out.
Nick Evans went 0-4 and is now batting .227 this spring. He needs to step it up if he expects to make the team, but that’s looking like a long shot now.
Bobby Parnell may be among the next round of cuts after today. He allowed three runs on three hits and two walks without registering an out.
