Unhappy Recap: Nationals 10 Mets 4

I think the Nelson Figueroa experiment is just about over. As good as he was for a couple starts, and as nice a story as he is, he has been getting killed lately.
He's very hittable, he's been walking guys and there's no reason to expect him to turn it around.

On the bright side the offense pounded out double digit hits for the 5th time in the last 6 games. But after they gave Figueroa 3 leads, and he blew them all, the offense went in the tank, stranding a lot of runners.

Carlos Delgado went 0 for 5, stranding 6 runners. He also made a key error in the second inning leading to the Nationals first run. To repeat, he's not going to hit .160 all year, he will have his moments, but overall he's still going to suck.

Why couldn't the Mets get Odalis Perez out?

This was also another game in which the Mets were in it and had a chance to come back, until the bullpen came in.

I don't know what is wrong with Sosa but he sucks even more than Heilman does.

The Mets need to win at least 2 out of the next 3 against Washington to avoid having this homestand become a complete disaster.
