Gut Reaction: Cardinals 6, Mets 0 (7/9/17)

Steven Matz came back down to Earth today after pitching out of this world his last few starts. His streak of 17 straight scoreless innings was snapped in the first inning of today’s game. Matz would go on to be responsible for four more earned runs in today’s game. My gut reaction is that this will not start a negative trend for Matz, and he will return to his regular form come next game.

The offense of the Mets did not muster much today. All-Star Michael Conforto, Jay Bruce, and Rene Rivera each had a single to their name. This would be the only hits the Mets could produce. Yoenis Cespedes continued his notable skid, going 0-3, dropping his average to .265 on the season.

Eric Goeddel and Seth Lugo combine to pitch 3.2 innings out of the bullpen. Lugo gave up a run in his three innings worked. The Mets next play again on Friday, when they take on the Colorado Rockies at home, at 7:10.

    Time to regroup, reassess and reinvigorate

    Anyone else that spent their day thinking on the last Sunday before the All-Star game this team would show a pulse, bang your heads with me.

    From Kevin Kernan in the NY Post:

    The Mets are 5-21 against first-place and wild-card teams. When I mentioned that to Jose Reyes he had a one-word response: “Wow.’’

    Collins also sees what nearly everyone else sees with his Mets. “We’ve got to get some energy back, we’re not playing with much energy right now,’’ he said of coming back Friday to face the Rockies at Citi Field. “I’m hoping that the rest will help out. We’ve got to put a streak together starting Friday.’’


    Maybe Collins can give that speech again about having 25 guys in Vegas that would love to be in New York. Remember the one last year August 11th, and then the Mets got swept at home by the Braves and Padres for an 0-6 home stand? It’s amazing how Collins seems to get all the credit when things are going well but absolutely none of the blame when they aren’t. What Fred Coupon sees in this guy, who gets much acclaim for getting them to play hard, I just don’t know. My dad is also 82 years old and has a similar “F the world, that’s what I want” mentality.
