OK, it was a long day. Tomorrow will be longer. I missed a lot. Let’s take a run at it.
Oliver Perez to the bullpen. Good.
Hisanori Takahashi will likely make the start for Perez. Also good.
Jose Reyes moved back to the leadoff spot. Also also good.
Angel Pagan hit third. No. This is not the spot for Pagan. Put Pagan second, Wright third, Bay fourth and Davis fifth. From there, you could slot Barajas sixth, Frenchy seventh and Castillo eighth. Good? Not really. Better? Yes.
The Mets lost again. Oy vey. The team is under .500 at 18-19 and there’s no signs of improvement coming their way. John Maine was beyond bad, with 12 straight balls to start the game. He could have been a lot worse, but that’s not something to take solace in. If the Mets are fed up with Perez and sending him to the ‘pen, Maine shouldn’t be far behind.
