true...

Or, I'll say it before someone else does to lessen the blow. At least they are hitting something.

boom tish

you could be in the NL East, where you can go 2 1/2 weeks without hitting and still be in first place.

my sliding scale of worry... if this slide continues, i shall start to get worried by, oh, sunday. the panic won't set in until they fall, eh, 5 games or more out of playoff contention.

i do have to say... carlos beltran? great player and all... but man, what a pussy. the guy gets a hang nail and he shuts it down for a 3 weeks.

Man, glad the Yanks took 2 out of 3. Was a little surprised by how poorly the Carlos' are playing. Just not clutch right now. El Duque had nothing last night, wow.

Is there an ETA on Pedro? Are Mets fans counting on him to return, or, will it be a sort of pleasant surprise?

I continue to be impressed with Reyes.

august at the earliest. and it would be a pleasant boost.

the problem has not been the starting pitching. the problem has been the inability to score runs... to hit with runners in scoring position. one would think scoring runs would not be an issue with the mets lineup, but it has. combine that with an a killer stretch in the schedule and you have a prolonged slump.

they get out of june within 5 games of 1st place and they'll be fine. they get out of june and they're still in 1st place, it's over.

this dreadful schedule is almost over... they've got 3 with minnesota, including johan, followed by 3 with oakland... thankfully they'll miss haren. then it's 4 at home with st. louis and 3 with philly

If the Braves could just have managed to play .500 ball, or a little better, the past few weeks, they'd have a nice little lead on the Mets.

Braves problem has been lack of hitting as well. Having Smoltz and Hudson a little banged up hasn't helped at all.

So hard to believe that Andruw Jones has struggled so much this year. Hitting 208 with about 3000 K's is just horrible. It's a contract year for him as well, so he's costing himself some $.

Phillies aren't out of it now either with both Mets/Braves playing piss poor.

Goodness gracious me, the Mariners sure are sucking lately. Here's hoping they actually get some more days off and not have to fill them with those stupid make-up games.

Why not have Youkilis lead off?

Headache, I hear you. Like I said, I was stunned by how poorly the Carlos' were doing. Gotta think that the Met bats will wake up sooner than later.

The Mariners are simply waking up and realizing that they're the 2007 Mariners, not the 2001 Mariners.

I wouldn't mind Youk leading off, the guy gets on base plenty, but he doesn't have the speed you'd want in a leadoff guy...or maybe he just doesn't make enough money to lead off.

Speed is great, but if you're never on base, it hardly matters how fast or slow you are. Youk gets on base, he sees a lot of pitches.

So yours truly was invited yesterday to play softball on the field at Fenway Park Thursday morning at 10AM.

And Hewson Junior has an appointment with an oral surgeon, yep, Thursday 9:30AM.

Stupid 3 year old banging his teeth on things.

Yep first time I take the little rugrat to Fenway when he's older, I'm gonna say..."And Daddy could have played out there except you f'ed it up for him".

they appear to have woken up last night... but of course, tonight they have to face johan santana, who is quite capable of putting them right back to sleep.
