Another Series Lost To The Braves

If they aren't careful the Mets are going to set a precedent.

First they lose two of three in Atlanta, fair enough, on the road.

Now they lose two of three at Shea.

Not only that but in both third games, the one on Hillbilly Hill in Atlanta and the one at Shea, the Mets bullpen uncharacteristically blew a lead.

That boils down to losing four out of six against your top rivals for the NL East and no matter how you'd like to sugar coat it to make the swallow a little easier, (like the fact that it's still early in the season, blabla...) the issue remains uncomfortably familiar.

A losing series against the Braves.

Oh, they had us fooloed in the sixth inning alright. Mebbe even had the Braves fooled for a few minutes.

Looks like I'm not the only one feeling frustrated...

Down 3-1 in the bottom 6th and looking all the world like they wouldn't see light at the end of the John Smoltz the Mets bats suddenly awoke from their collective slumber which culminated with a bases-loaded (what else but?) triple from Jose Reyes to give them what felt like an unshakeable 6-3 heading into the 7th with the award-winning bullpen warmed up and ready to close out the game.

This is the bullpen of course that before yesterday's game, had not allowed an earned run in 25 2/3 innings, a streak dating to April 11, and the bullpen's 1.31 ERA was the best in the majors.

Not Sunday, not the best. 3 innings of damage. They only surrendered 4 hits, mind you, but Schoeneweis and Aaron Heilman surrendered three-run home runs in the seventh and eighth innings and that was the damage done.

Won't face the Braves at Shea again until August.

And look on the bright side:
