The Mets lost game three to the Phillies, 3-1 tonight and lose the series. Mike Pelfrey had a decent outing, not exactly like his last start, but an outing that the Mets could have won on. That is if the Mets had any offense. Six hits, one run tonight. Thanks to Jose Reyes’ solo homerun in the third inning. Mets bullpen did well, two scoreless innings. Mets fall back to one game under .500. Game [...]
Despite a late inning rally, the Mets fall to the Phils 6-5 and lose the series. Dickey had his worst start this season only going three innings and giving up six runs.

While rumors of the Mets acquiring a top line starter still abound – Cliff Lee , Roy Oswalt and the rest of the 2010 cadre of possible trade deadline pickups – the acquisition of a reliever may be just as imperative on Omar Minaya’s wish list. As of today the Mets have the 11th best bullpen ERA in the majors at 3.67. Unfortunately we tend to remember the implosions such as Francisco Rodriguez’ recent meltdown [...]
Cliff Lee is one of the best pitchers in the game. Last year’s performance in the World Series was spectacular. Lee was brilliant against one of the best if not the best lineup in the game in 2 starts. The two games that the Phillies won were Lee’s in the Fall Classic. It’s now 2010 and Cliff Lee is now a member of the Seattle Mariners. Lee is having an amazing first half for Seattle. [...]
In today’s New York Post, Mike Puma reports that Jerry Manuel is desperate for another arm in his bullpen and that he plans to address the matter with GM Omar Minaya. “Manager Jerry Manuel planned to speak with team brass last night about the possibility of adding a seventh reliever, after the Mets emptied their bullpen yesterday in a 9-5 victory over the Nationals.” Whether you think Jerry Manuel has done a poor job of handling [...]
Look in the dugout during a Mets game. If you see Jose Reyes smiling, laughing and dancing, you know the Mets are winning and contending. If you see him anyway else, they are probably losing. We saw it happen in 2006. Reyes led the Mets with 194 hits, batting .300. He hit 37 doubles, 19 triples and 16 home runs. Oh, and least I forget he stole 64 bases. The end result was 97 wins [...]
The only good thing about the Mets bullpen is that it has not been needed over the last two weeks. The starting pitching and the offense have been strong enough to carry the team. But here’s my advice to Omar Minaya: Do something quickly about the Mets pathetic bullpen. Otherwise it could very well turn out to be the downfall as the pennant races heat up this summer. Elmer Dessens of all people has inherited, [...]
