Tonight, the Mets (71-75) begin a four-game series against the division rival Nationals (67-77).

The Mets managed to lose two out of three to the hapless Cubs, and that was after dropping a make-up double-header to the Atlanta Braves. It isn't the losing so much as the way they've lost lately. Ugly.

The Mets miss Stephen Strasburg so I'll hope for a split.
