Gary Cohen and Ron Darling said it best on tonight's telecast: Last week, in games started by John Lannan and Odalis Perez, the Mets put up 23 runs on 27 hits. These last two days, against the same starting pitchers, the Mets have managed just two runs and nine hits.
The Mets are in second place now. How does it taste? David Wright says it's just a blip. The Mets had a pre-game meeting to no avail. Who's going to save this team? The middle of the lineup has phoned it in the last two games. Twelve games left in the season. Do the Mets go out with a bang or with a whimper?
