In a frightening twist to the early season, the Mets were swept at home by the Rockies including the rare feat of being swept at home in a doubleheader. They’ve now lost five straight games and eight of nine. It’s some of the worst baseball I’ve seen in years and that’s saying something for the Mets.
R.A. Dickey got roughed up for 5 runs in 5.1 innings in the first game, a 6-5 loss. And Chris Capuano was rocked for 7 runs in 5.2 innings in the second game today. None of the Mets pitchers could get Troy Tulowitzki out. He was a one-man wrecking ball hitting homers in all four games.
I can’t even go into greater detail about this series without making myself feel sick. It’s only April and it feels like the season is over, that there’s nothing to look forward to this summer. If I go into detail about the Mets sloppy outfield play letting balls drop in front (or behind) them it will drive me crazy.
Terry Collins had a closed door meeting to chew out the players after their Wed. night loss. He obviously played that card too early. It didn’t do any good as they went out and got destroyed in a doubleheader today. It’s just ugly right now.
