I know they left a lot of runners on base, but Murphy blows it again on the base paths.  He HAS to score on the base hit, but yet he's going back to second on a line drive to the outfield.  What a dope!!  Sure they had the bases loaded with no outs, but it's a completely different inning if he scores....and they have 2 runs.  I am so sick of his pathetic slapping swing and  much worse base running.  He rarely hits when they need him the most.  Trade him now and please do not sign him to an extension.

Games like this good teams WIN. The Mets need a real clean up hitter so they can push grandy lower in the lineup where he belongs. Roles need to set in the bullpen because it hAs strong potential

Why not trade Wright for 3 good prospects? Time to shake things up!

Bottom line:  Mets offense is not good, very inconsistent.  They can go cold and do go cold way too often.

This team also needs a catcher. Zero production here is killing them.

Chris Young is to Sandy Alderson what Mel Rojas was to Steve Philips. Somehow Alderson feels that his decision to sign CY will be miraculously justified. Well it won't. Rojas was the beginning of the end for Philips as Valentine kept marching him out there, loss after loss. CY will be Alderson's albatross unless Collins just refuses to use him even with the outfield being short. Time to eat the 7 million or risk losing the few who still care.

@Steven Matregrano Of course not. But good teams WIN these close ones. Losses like this to the worst team in baseball STING and it does help to vent!

@Dream Snatcher TC: "Plus Chris gave me a bite of his sandwich. Darn good sandwich! How can I not start him? What - you want me to start Campbell who has pretty much produced when I give him a start every 6 days?"

"You know chris young was standing in the outfield that's all you can ask for him to do, he'll come around we just have to wait and see. He'll hit better when the weather heats up"

See sometimes you sound smart other times you sound like a damn fool. You can't expect him to be a miracle worker every night. He's not a 30 Home run guy like he once was. And nobody else is sending it over the wall. 11 guys LOB?UNACCEPTABLE!!! With that said, this isn't even a home run hitting team especially at the gulag we call Citi Field.

@jimmybxnyc what if wright played in the american league east? he would have 25 homeruns every single year. stop hating. and try and realize he plays in the toughtest ball park in the league

They didn't give Wright anything to hit his first two ABs. Now we're blaming him for not hitting a HR in the other two ABs? The rest of the team left a small army on base again. Bases loaded with no outs and NO ONE came home. Murphy had a brain freeze and didn't score on Grandy's single, then GDP in top of ninth. d'Arnaud popping up all over the place. Cay again doing nothing but leaving runners on. This team has way bigger problems than a bobbled potential double play ball in the 9th.

Yes, 3 very good prospects

Wrong, I root for the laundry not individual players. If trading Wright would help the team why wouldn't you do it?

Then why hasn't anyone else stepped up!!! Chris Young that one game at Yankee stadium in the clutch?! That's all I can think of! Face it, we were way over our heads with this team. We have the talent to be decent but we lose games like these because EVERYONE shuts down!

Disgraceful. Shouldn't happen

@jimmybxnyc @cyrus Didnt he win one of those games with an extra inning hit in Philly? And the huge double over Reveres head in the the last Philly game? I agree - he hasnt come up BIG at times but he's NOT the only one. Look we have an organization that keeps starting CY and insists that Travis can catch AND hit!!!!!!

@tullydew  I don't see anyway in hell. Are the Mets picking up most of his contract in your trade scenario? Because there's no way a team is going to take all that money back and give up 3 very good prospects just for Wright.

@tullydew name me the 3 prospects and tell me that one of them is at least going to be David wright and we have a deal'

@Steven Matregrano Plus WRIGHT has played EVERY GAME - he & murph should sit and get a few breathers. TC is HORRIBLE at managing his bench & bullpen.

Surround wright with a team like 06 and the pressure is off of him and whaddaya know you got a contending team but no we have the Fourth Reich we call the Front Office

I'm not being forgiving of wright but it's not like he was the only one.

Murphy being a dumbfvck not scoring.

The team not being able to get a run in with the bases loaded and nobody out

Edgin giving up a home run to a scrub

Rice pitching his 4500th game of the year and he can't even hold the CUBS off the board

Let's be honest here, you can't lay an egg bigger than the Beltran egg. And that September collapse was just so out of control everything was going wrong but we can't even break .500 so why even discuss the past. We're not making the playoffs with this team we need more but Sandy is against signing power hitters....the life of a mets fan

Ever heard of Murphy's Law?
