Big series tonight against the Nats. It will be interesting to see how Young pitches.

What a disgusting game by the Mets defense. The defense cost the Mets the win. They could have won in the 8th, 10th and 12th but of course not. Valdespin is a terrible fielder. My 15 year old cousin is a better fielder than he is. There are 2 positives from this game. Young pitched well and Hairston is on a tear. I can't blame it on Ramirez because it was his 2nd outing and he was nervous. He did pitch alright and he also threw heat. Frankie reminds me of Benitez in the 9th. I wish the Mets would have went after Papelbon or Nathan or even Bell.

Did you happen to catch his little interview before the game Wednesday? He said all the right things--he can't wait to get back in the lineup, who wouldn't want to be involved with a team playing so much better than everyone thought it would, etc. But his tone of voice was flat and lifeless. He didn't sound as though he believed the words coming out of his mouth.

Then again, Bay said that he didn't want to play in New York even as he signed that contract.

I wish there was a way to trade him. We aren't going to see the Jason Bay who lit things up in Pittsburgh and Boston. Send him somewhere else (where he actually wants to play), and it doesn't matter who we get in return; they have to have a better attitude than he does.

Mets win 3-1. Dickey is now 9-1.

The big positive is how poised Parnell remained.

The Yankees always hit Santana hard, even when he was on the Twins. The hitting was anemic tonight. Davis looks lost and has to be sent down for a while.

Batted Ball FIP which uses walks, strikeouts and batted ball types (ground outs, fly outs, line drives) to give the number of runs expected to have been given up.

Johan Santana on June 1st: BBFIP = 2.42
Johan Santana on June 8th: BBFIP = 3.22

He didn't pitch that much differently in his no-hitter and his shelling by the Yankees.
