Mets Finally Get a Win

After losing a home series to the Giants, and getting swept at home by the Phillies, the Mets finally got a win in Detroit. Jorge Sosa pitched another fantastic game. David Wright and Carlos Delgado are finally starting to get some hits with regularity.

The two big concerns right now are the bullpen and the injury situation in the outfield. Scott Schoenweiss and Aaron Heilman have been terrible this year. Schoenweiss isn’t tradeable because of his three year contract, but I’d like to see Heilman get a fresh start somewhere else. Obviously, he hasn’t been happy for several years working in relief. I think its time for him to be traded.

There isn’t much the Mets can do about the injuries in the outfield. They just need to weather the storm. It’s hard to watch Ben Johnson and Carlos Gomez playing every day. I don’t even like to see Endy Chavez playing as much as he was.  Ricky LeDee was pulled off the scrap heap to start in left field last night. That’s when you know things have gotten really bad. It’s really too bad that Lastings Milledge has been hurt. I would’ve liked to see him get some regular playing time in the majors. It also would’ve been a nice showcase before the trading deadline next month.

Fortunately, the Mets are still 4.5 games ahead of the Braves. Let’s hope they can keep it that way until Moises Alou and Shawn Green come back from injuries. I never would’ve thought that I’d be hoping for Shawn Green to get back into the lineup!

Mets Take the Series from the Giants

The Mets won 4-2 behind another good game from El Duque. I keep waiting for him to falter but it hasn’t happened. The Mets took two out of three games from the Giants. That’s key to win home series against out of division opponents.

The biggest story of the game could be Carlos Beltran hurting his knee. The Mets other two starting outfielders are already hurt. Hopefully, Moises Alou will be back tonight against the D-Backs. Shawn Green is on the disabled list. If Beltran is out for any length of time it will be a big blow to the Mets.

A three games series against the D-Backs starts tonight, Monday is an off day, then Philly comes to town for three games.
