Found September 16, 2012 on Mets Merized Online:
The Mets (66-79) lost to the Brewers (73-72) by the score of 9-6 on Saturday evening at Miller Park.   When you throw 68 pitches over 3+ innings of work and you struggle to find the strike zone, it is a definite recipe for disaster. All eyes were on Jenrry Meija in Milwaukee, where he was making his first start in exactly two years – since injuring himself on this day in 2010. He struggled to throw strikes, actually throwing more balls than strikes (32:36 strike:ball ratio) and almost walked as many men as he allowed via the hit. His final line was 3+ IP, 6 H, 5 BB, and 5 ER. He did not achieve a strikeout. Meija did pitch to four batters in the fourth before being removed. Two of those runs were allowed by Hefner, who inherited them and allowed them to cross the plate.

In a world where David Wright is wrong

Up is down, black is white is short is long and everything that you thought which was SO important, doesn’t matter. These prophetic words were sung by Weird Al Yankovich in his Album, Bad Hair Day.  The reality remains that with or without David Wright, the Mets are far from being a World Series competitor.  That’s the goal, right?  We’re not shooting for mid-season relevance…...
