The Mets continue to limp down the stretch having lost five of their last six and and fifteen of their last twenty-four. Today, they will send Daisuke Matsuzaka and his 10.95 ERA to the mound in an attempt to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Indians.
On the bright side, the Mets are doing everything in their power to ensure the Yankees are also on the outside looking in when the playoffs begin in a few weeks. With the help of the Mets, the Cleveland Indians have now won five straight and leapfrogged the Yankees in the AL Wild Card race.
Long story short... Today's lineup features Josh Satin at designated hitter, Anthony Recker behind the dish and Justin Turner at the hot corner. AKA... enjoy your football and have a beer for us too!
