Playing Catch Up

Good news sportsfans!

The hiatus is over and although the Army has been following the plights and exploits of the Mets from a respectable distance, it's now time to rejoin the human race of Mets supporters once again and play catch up on the season since we last looked in:

1. The Lead Is Still Double Digits!: (11 1/2 games and falling over the Atlanta Braves. A month ago, it was the same 11 1/2 games only it was over the Phillies and the Braves were 15 1/2 out.



Over the last 30 days, Paul Lo Duca is hitting .370, no homers, 7 doubles, 10 RBIs.
Over the last 30 days, Mike Piazza is hitting .429 with 5 homers and 16 RBIs.

Over the last 30 days, David Wright has 25 strikeouts and 10 walks.
Over the last 30 days, Jose Reyes has 13 strikeouts and 6 walks.

Over the last 30 days, the ERAs of the six Mets starters still standing:

John Maine 1-2 2.18 ERA
Tom Glavine 0-2 4.76 ERA
Steve Trachsel 3-1 6.15 ERA
El Duque 2-1 3.97 ERA
Mike Pelfrey 2-1 5.38 ERA
Pedro 0-1 18.00 ERA


Now as to the schedule:

One more against the Cubs, then three in Atlanta to close out the month.

August: 3 @ Florida, 6 @ Shea v. Phillies and Padres (Piazza's homecoming), then back on the road for 7 games against the Nats and Phillies. Then a 9 game homestand against the Rockies, Cardinals and yet again, those pesky Phillies before closing out the month at Colorado.

Overall, 10 games against the Phillies for the month, loser of 3 in a row, 13 1/2 games out of first and the hotbed of Met Killah trade rumours.
