Unhappy Recap: Mariners 11 Mets 0

If you're going to lose you might as well lose in spectacular fashion.

A quick word on Oliver Perez even though I've said it before. When he's bad he's horrible and your team has no chance of winning. When he's good, he's great. The Mets are 7-9 in games he's started, which isn't terrible on a .500 team. And he's admittedly having a very bad year. The Mets should definitely sign him for next year and should probably do it now while his value is low. I think a lot of his problems are mental and maybe they can be fixed or at least improved.

A lot of attention is focused on Perez and Santana losing these two games, but the offense has scored exactly two runs. The lack of hitting is the major reason why this team is so bad.

The Mets are now 3-4 in the Manuel era, not yet enough to prove that the manager wasn't the problem, but it's a pretty good indication.

And Mets fans are so glad so happy that we have a manager with fire. So he got himself thrown out of the game. Big deal.

The umpire was way out of line, and I have no problem with the way Manuel handled it, but don't think him getting ejected is going to light a fire under this dead team.

he got ejected to keep Beltran from getting tossed ... which didn't work so well. i don't think he got ejected to light a fire under the team. He should have come back onto the bench wearing a fake moustache.
