If beating the Reds is defining the season for the Mets, it is a sad state of affairs. The Reds are not a good baseball team, although some would lead you to believe they are.

Pelfrey had as many hits as the Reds LEADOFF hitter tonight, probably because he should be in Louisville not Cincinnati. I did like the Reds broadcast team saying he should watch Reyes if he wants to TRY to be a leadoff hitter because he certainly isn't one right now.

Swept for the first time at home since '08. This team is pathetic. How does a team with this kind of talent just flat out suck?

Atleast Votto seems to be in quite the groove right now. Think that's 3 games in a row with a HR. If they are wanting to unload Alonso before the trade deadline they aren't doing a good job of showcasing him before Sunday. I have a hard time believing they just brought him up to ride the pine?!

I'm happy when my Mets beat anyone...let alone sweep someone at their home park.

Talent. Now thats funny. There are about 5 players on their roster that would be considered a talent. Votto, Phillips, Cueto, Cordero and Rolen are about the only 5 this team couldn't really do without. No one in their outfield couldn't be upgraded. SS was a bad group before Cozart came up and is once again a liability. Catcher is a toss up, unless you could put the two of them together. Their rotation is suspect at best, 2 of them wouldn't be 5's on most rosters in the MLB.

They got very lucky to win the division last year by beating terrible teams and playing the weakest schedule in baseball. Hell they won something like 25 games on the last out of the game. They were over-achievers and got run out of the playoffs. This year is just a continuation of last year with tougher competition.

Rolen and Cordero shoudln't be on the talent list anymore.
Maybe I should have said potential rather than talent. We have all these players with potential, but they just don't live up to it.

By potential, I think you mean media driven hype.

28 of 33 were Ks.
How about strikeouts vs. strikeouts looking on an 0-2 count?

Where do Royals fans go? I mean seriously we suck so bad we don't have our own thread. Being a Kansas City sports fan is tough.

Try being a Cincinnati fan. No world series wins since '90 and no super bowl wins either

Win 2, lose 4, win 2.

Looks like Jocketty had no interest in making trades this year. Guess we're gonna have to ride it out. No matter how good a player may have been if we had made a trade, it wouldn't make a difference anyway with this team. At least Gomes is gone.
