Just a brutal game all-around. John Maine had arguably the worst start of any Met this season, allowing eight runs on ten hits in 5.2 innings for a woeful game score of 19. Duaner Sanchez "relieved" him in the sixth and allowed singles to the first two runners he faced before retiring the final out of the inning. Maine and Sanchez are probably the Mets' two biggest problems right now, and nothing we saw on Saturday would lead us to believe that things have gotten better. I guess Maine's velocity was up, so that's a little encouraging.
Brian Schneider needs a random PED test pronto.
