Unhappy Recap: Phillies 9 Mets 2

The starting pitching sucked, the bullpen was worse and the offense didn't hit. Not the way the Mets wanted to start off their most crucial road trip of the year. They needed at least a split in Philly and 2 of 3 in Atlanta.

Brian Lawrence is done as a Mets starter. The quality of his starts has gotten progressively worse and he is so hittable and he only pitched more then 5 innings once in 5 starts, in which the Mets went 1-4. Saturday against the Braves would have been his next and last turn but the Mets will find someone for that spot, then put Pedro in it the next time through the rotation.

Willie is overusing Jorge Sosa and now every time he comes in he gives up a run. Schoeneweis was horrible.

Lastings Milledge strikes out just about every time up recently. He's 3 for his last 17 with 10 strikeouts.

Carlos Delgado struck out with a man on third and one out when the game was still close.

Pat Burrell hit another home run. His 38th in 128 games and 450 at bats against the Mets. For comparison, he has a very similar number of at bats against the Marlins against whom he's hit 21 homers and against the Braves (14 homers). This freakin guy kills the Mets.
