If you want to know the stark differences between the two teams in New York, the events of last night might be a good starting point.
In Flushing, the Mets failed for the 15th time since late June to win consecutive games, losing in a fashion that sadly for their fans, especially those that are my closest friends and Met fans, has become all too familiar. It was a 6-2 loss to the Rockies, a team that actually is in the race but that doesn't tell the whole story.
The Mets were close to a 2-1 victory despite getting three hits and one after the second batter of the game. It was a case of terrible at-bats and if you don't believe me, consider this - seven straight hitters struck out at one point (five swinging, two foul tips). What that tells me is a lot of long looping...
