Honestly, the Mets really need to win a game, because we're getting tired of writing about their losing ways. Last night, they were in Miami, taking on the Marlins and losing their 10th game in a row and their 15th loss in the last 16. We'll just sit here and remember some good times. Times when the Mets were close to first and swept the Yankees. Seems like so long ago.
Don't let the 7-3 score (box score) fool you, it might have been somewhat close (for the Mets), but they only had three hits and had two errors. Quality baseball from professional players. Tom Glavine pitched five innings, giving up four runs and eight hits in the loss.
As if their losing streak wasn't enough, the Mets were also hit hard by the weather in Florida. Their Spring Training facilities were damaged by the heavy rain and strong winds from Hurricane Frances. The Times quotes Scott Strickland as saying, "The center-field wall is gone. The luxury boxes are gone. The dugouts on the side fields are gone. All the lights and speakers are on the ground. There is a lot of flooding in the clubhouse. It's a mess." A mess indeed. Tradition Field and the Mets, both a mess.
