Mets Continue To Make History In A Breaking Bad Way
The Mets officially have been eliminated from NL East title contention after losing to the Nationals 5-1 on Monday night. Collin McHugh started and only gave up five hits however three of them were home runs and accounted for all four Nationals runs.
I’m not a pitching analyst by any stretch of the imagination, but it seems to me that everybody knows Collin McHugh is tipping his pitches except for Dan Warthen. What’s up with that?
Scott Haiston’s home run, his 16th of the season, accounted for all the Mets scoring. Everytime hairston hits a home run, his asking price for 2013 goes up a few hundred thousand. He is already way past the Mets means’ and I wonder where he’ll end up next season.
Lone bright spot? Jeurys Familia pitched two perfect innings out of the pen.
After the game, Terry Collins announced that Jeremy Hefner will go to the bullpen, and Jenrry Mejia will be inserted in the rotation and start Saturday’s game against the Brewers at Miller Park.
Anyway, Gio Gonzalez wins his nineteenth game ahead of R.A. Dickey who pitches tomorrow night. Game time is at 7:00 PM.
The Mets have now scored three or fewer runs for the 11th straight home game, tying the franchise record set in 1966-67 and duplicated in 1979.
The Mets are now 4-19 at Citi Field since the All-Star break.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Mets have failed to produce a multi-run inning at home for 106 straight innings. That’s the second-longest streak in major league history, behind only the 1909 Senators, who went 119 innings.
Kelly Shoppach keeps showing why he’s never been anything more than a backup catcher for his career. The more playing time he gets, the more flaws you see. That said, the Mets are seriously considering bringing him back regardless. “That was one of the reasons we brought him here”, said Sandy Alderson.
