After the big win on Friday afternoon things went downhill for the Mets. They lost the second game of the Friday Day-Night Doubleheader 9-0. Yesterday the Yankees beat them in a squeaker 3-2. When the game began today we didn't know which Oliver Perez would show up. He was really sharp as the Mets won today 3-1 and won 4 of the 6 in this years Subway Series.
At the halfway point the Mets are 40-41. The change of managers did not make a difference. I don't see the Amazins improving much over the second half. They may luck out since the NL East is weak this year, but their hitting must improve. Ryan Church came back today and Moises Alou is scheduled back next weekend. The Yankees are about 6 game over .500, but must get better pitiching to get into the playoffs. They must defeat the Red Sox and hope that the Tampa Bay Rays fade in the second half. There is still a long way to go.
