This is a bad loss. No way to sugar coat it. Houston is not a good team. Wandy threw well for them, but Niese also threw well. No reason the final score should be 6-1.
As I mentioned on twitter:
1) Is Hu really our best pinch hitter? I don't care if a lefty is on the mound. He has not shown he is capable of hitting major league pitching, even if they are throwing underhand. He is strictly a defensive replacement. PERIOD. Do not let him hit.
2) I'm sick of Bobby Parnell. He needs to leave Queens. He made a close game out of reach with 2 outs in the 8th inning. He better be sent down when Bay is activated on Thursday.
Mets fall to 5-12. Very frustrating. Dickey vs Norris tomorrow night.
