So-so Seo and the Mets drop another

jae seo's ultra rare run support dried up after one game, but he didn't do himself any favors either. nursing a 1-0 lead for 3 no-hit innings, the nats finally broke through in the 4th inning with a solo line drive homer from jose guillen to tie the game up. then in the 5th, seo gave up dingers to brian schneider and livan hernandez. that was unforgivable. you can't let the girly hitting catcher and opposing pitcher take you deep.

those were the only hits seo allowed in 5 innings, and it was enough to get him the loss. the mets brought the deadwood lumber to the park again. the hits were there, but never in the clutch. the late inning rally attempt was futile again.

same lousy themes as always to consider:

and so with that, the mets look to finish april on a winning note and get out of the month with a .500 record. i said i'd be happy with a .500 april. of course, that was when the mets stumbled out of the starting gate and planted their face 5 feet deep in the mud. now, i'll still take .500, and hopefully a month under his belt is all willie needs to take this lifeless, inconsistent team by the neck and give it a damn good shaking for may and beyond.

the mets look to victor zamboozled tonight as the stopper. he's due for a quality outing. i hate him so. go zammy!

on the injuries front, both anna benson's husband and cammy are doing st lucie A ball rehab gigs and their returns are imminent. will that be a boost or a downer? beats me. you tell me.

on the minor league front, phil humber has also returned from injury to the st lucie mets. yusmeiro petit is having his pitch count increased at binghamton. brian bannister is 4-0 and virtually unhittable for the bingo mets. jason scobie is 4-0 for the tides. the prospect arms are all healthy and really looking tremendous on every level. can't say the same for the bats. the tides are being supported by major league vets. they have brian daubach, benji gil, gerald williams, and mike difelice in the everyday lineup. yeah, we know they can overmatch AAA pitching, but are they usable parts for the mets? i don't think so. jeff keppinger continues to impress though. his road is blocked by kazuo at the moment, though. at binghamton, there are legitimate prospects like aarom baldiris and mike jacobs who are working on position changes. then again, prentice redman is still there for what, his 12th year or does it just seem like it? at st lucie, lastings milledge is a real bust. he hit the wall there last year after a mid-season promotion, and he still can't adjust this year. he's also got his annual april hand injury. shawn bowman, the hyped up brooks robinson with the glove, also can't hit his way out of a wet paper bag. one step lower at hagerstown, superhype job, ambiorex concepcion, can't hit a breaking ball for his life.
