Johan Santana followed up a game to remember with a game to forget. He gave up four home runs - two to Robinson Cano - and six runs in five innings of work. He struck out five and walked one, but he was missing the strike zone frequently despite the low walk total. At the plate, the Mets didn't do much better, making Hiroki Kuroda look like an ace. Ike Davis, for what it's worth at this point, still looks completely lost. At no point did it seem like the Mets had a reasonable chance to win the game. Elvin Ramirez labored through his innings in relief. He may be the slowest-paced Mets pitcher since Steve Trachsel.
We knew it was over when...
Robinson Cano hit his second two-run home run. The back-to-back home runs that followed his second didn't help much, either.
It probably can't get much worse tomorrow and Sunday.
Nice job by MetsFan4Decades; her effort in the game thread embiggens us all.
