Mets swept

The Mets lost today 3-1 to the Reds being swept in the process of the three game series. After scoring a bunch of runs against the Rays, the Mets only managed five against the Reds. The Mets got a good outing from Chris Young today but the offense was a now show.

The only run the Mets scored was on a bases loaded walk by Chris Young which is all you need to know about this game. Young pitched seven innings and only gave up two earned runs but suffered the loss. Luckily for the Mets, the Nationals were swept in their three game series against the Yankees so the Mets will remain 3.5 games back.

The Mets will now welcome the Orioles to Citi Field followed by the Yankees.

Mets drop second straight to the Reds

The Mets lost their second straight home game last night by a score of 4-1 to the Reds. The game was basically over in the top of the first inning when Jay Bruce hit a three-run homer off Jon Niese on a hanging curveball. The Mets had numerous opportunities to tie the game early but Reds starter Homer Bailey was able to escape.

It has been a disappointing start to the home stand for the Mets after sweeping the Rays in Tampa. The Mets have blown chances to creep closer to the Nationals who have lost two straight games to the Yankees.

With the loss, the Mets fall to 35-31 on the season 4 Ĺ games behind the Nationals. The Mets are currently in third place in the NL East as they trail the Braves by Ĺ game for second place.

The Mets will try to salvage the three game series today when they send Chris Young to the mound against Johnny Cueto. The game will be played at 1:10 pm.

Bay out of action

The Mets lost tonight by a score of 7-3 to the Cincinnati Reds. The biggest event coming out of this game was that Jason Bay left the game with another possible concussion after crashing into the fence in the second inning. Jay Bruce got an inside the park homerun on the play.

Bay has been a disaster since signing with the Mets but I actually feel bad for the guy. He crashed into the wall trying to make a catch and clearly hit the wall pretty hard. I donít see any way he doesnít go back on the disabled list.

Bronson Arroyo continues to own the Mets. Luckily the Nationals finally lost tonight to the Yankees so the Mets wonít lose any more ground. The Mets will look to tie up the series tomorrow night with Jon Niese on the mound.

Mets sweep Rays

Shockingly the Mets swept the Rays this afternoon by a score of 9-6. The offense has suddenly awakened against the best pitching staff in the American League, go figure. Kirk Nieuwenhuis hit two home runs and Jason Bay of all people had one as well. Johan Santana got the win pitching into the sixth inning.

The star of the game might actually be Jon Rauch who came into a base loaded, no out jam in the sixth inning. He struck out the first two batters he faced and finished it with a groundout to third. Rauch has lost his setup position and has gotten into the last two games very early

MLB Top 5 4/27/11

Another week brings another top 5. This week's list looks very similar to the one posted last week; the only change coming at the 5th and final spot. As the weather's been warming, so have some teams.

The talk of the week surrounds the Boston Red Sox. They have turned up their level of play and are sitting right at the .500 mark. Though they do not quite make my list this week, there is no denying their talent and the fact that they will be frequenting these posts in the near future

Performance Pitching

Monday brought its share of dominant pitching performances. Yesterday alone, seven pitchers went at least 7 innings and gave up no more than 1 earned run. This stat isn't even including the Pirate's Kevin Correia who threw a complete game against the Reds, only surrendering 2 earned runs.

MLB Top 5 4/13/2011

It's certainly hard to have any kind of rankings this early in the year but I'll do my best to try and determine who looks to be the best of MLB. The top two spots are locks right now with Texas and the Phillies. After that things get a little fuzzier. This early in the year it's more common to find unlikely teams like Minnesota, Atlanta, St. Louis and San Francisco on the bottom, so it's hard to truly gauge the top teams. Here are my current top 5 of the MLB.

1. Texas Rangers
