Unhappy Recap: Phillies 4 Mets 2

I don't want to hear anything about bad luck costing the Mets this game. In the 8th inning there was a home run, a walk and a throwing error before any of that other stuff happened. That other stuff being a 30 foot roller that just stayed fair and scored the tying run. And the other infield hit had no impact on the game.

The fact is, the bullpen sucks. They keep getting killed, every game in the last 8 runs have been scored while a relief pitcher was on the mound (in one game they were charged to Maine, the only one in which the pen wasn't charged with any runs). The bullpen is awful, every pitcher is responsible, including Wagner, and if it doesn't turn around the Mets are not going anywhere.

And the offense is not off the hook either. Three straight games of scoring only 2 runs. That's a real good way to earn a 3 game losing streak. The only runs were scored on a 2 run blast by Delgado. But lest we think he is coming out of his slump, he reminded us how ineffective he's been by striking out with 2 men on and 2 outs in the 8th inning.

Tom Glavine was awesome and he deserved better.

13, 17, 13, 7, 8, 15, 13 & 12. The number of hits the Mets have given up in the past 8 games. 6 games over 12, the Mets lost 5 of those.
