The Mets were feeling as good as they have all season after game 1 on Friday. They blew out the struggling Washington Nationals and if they won the night cap they would have tied the Phillies for second place.

All of the momentum disappeared when Matt Harvey’s brilliant game 2 performance was wasted when the Mets could only give him one run to work with and gave up one on a Daniel Murphy error.

The Mets lost the next three in Washington including a 14-1 drubbing on Sunday. The Mets scored three runs in the final three games in Washington.

That’s been the problem with this Met team all year. They simply can’t score. When the Mets don’t hit homeruns they just don’t score and they don’t win games.

The Mets had a golden opportunity to get back into this race and instead it appears they helped resurrect rival Washington’s season.

The team is now 46-56 11 games out of first and 12.5 out of a wild card spot. Their just isn’t enough fire power in this lineup to make any kind of run.

Also this team is just terrible defensively. Even when they were winning they still lead the majors in errors in July. They are in need of some position player upgrades this offseason for sure.

      Well mike we talked about it before the season, they simply don’t have enough firepower in this lineup. Unless wright or Byrd hits a homerun they really don’t win games. Just not enough offense and their bullpen has lost them a lot of close/ extra inning games. -Steven
