If not for Josh Thole and Ken Takahashi everyone on the Mets would have contributed negatively to the team's overall win expectancy Tuesday night. As it was, Thole and Tak contributed only negligibly. Other times the Mets have lost 6-0:
8/2/1997 - No joke: Mike Hampton again, still with the Astros. This time, Bobby J. Jones is on the short end for the Mets. Outfield of Butch Huskey, Carl Everett, and Alex Ochoa. Not sure if Everett was yet a dinosaur denier.
8/17/1993 - Bobby Ayala and the Reds shut down Dwight Gooden and the Mets. Joe Orsulak in left; Kevin Baez at shortstop. Dave Telgheder allows two runs in two innings of relief.
6/8/1992 - The Expos' Ken Hill goes the distance against Anthony Young. Willie Randolph starts at second for the Mets. AY is in the midst of his epic losing streak, but still has a long way to go.
7/17/1989 - In the first game of a doubleheader with the Astros, Jim Deshaies goes eight strong against Ron Darling, Jeff Innis, and Wally Whitehurst. A Mets' offensive attack led by Juan Samuel manages just two hits overall.
