Mets lose 5-3. Pedro only lasted 3 innings. Mets bats looked mediocre against lefty Maholm. Aargh.
Do you think the Mets didn't try hard enough, because they felt bad about the prospect of celebrating on the field in front of Jeromy Burnitz?
I'm rooting for the Phillies to win tonight so that the Mets can try again to clinch with a win tomorrow night.
