The good news: Lefthander Chris Capuano is starting for the Mets, and he can be effective. The bad: He has won only twice in his past nine starts, and both victories, wouldn’t you know, were against the local nine. So the Braves have that going for them, which is … not really nice.
Wow 1 game lead and 6 games left. Strasburg tomorrow.Put up or shut up.
To get into the playoffs sweeping the Nationals is a MUST. Hopefully the Cubs win at least one game vs. the Cardinals. Then we go into the Philly series with a two game cushion. This is the only scenario I see us getting into the dance.
If I take anything away from this it will be that resting essential pieces of your team before you’ve clinch anything is a HUGE mistake. Especially when you’re playing without 2 of your 3 best pitchers. If we miss the postseason Fredi Gonzalez should be fired next Thursday. He obviously cannot get these guys to play for him.
