That Was Hardly Moneyball

The Mets lost to one of the weakest teams in the American League by a score of 7-3, have been passed by Washington in the standings, and are now six games back for the Wild Card. But other than that...

  • Dillon Gee was horrible tonight, lasting just four innings, giving up four runs on three hits, while striking out one and walking six. This was Gee's first loss of the season.
  • D.J. Carrasco came in to pitch the next two innings, and wasn't much better. He allowed three runs on four hits, while walking two.
  • Mets pitching gave up a total of nine walks tonight.
  • Mets batters had just four hits off A's starter Josh Outman. Guess that's appropriate, with his name and all.
  • It wasn't all bad. Jason Bay broke out of his season-long slump, going 3-3 with a single, triple, and a home run. He had two RBIs and a run scored. Not a bad days work.
  • Jose Reyes went 0-5 at the plate. Good thing he doesn't want to negotiate his contract today.
Keith Hernandez was, by far, the star of tonight's game. Guy was throwing out quality quotes all night. Here are a couple of gems:
  • "If he [Josh Outman] walks Tejada he should be shot... I don't mean that literally."
  • "That's unchar...uncharacteristic...ugh whatever."
Next up: The Mets continue their series with the A's on Wednesday night at Citi Field. Game time is 7:10 p.m.
