Not The Start They Wanted

Marlins 7 Mets 6

This is not the start the Mets wanted for John Maine. He gave up two home runs which is the biggest issue with Maine. The Bullpen was not good as well. Mejia in his major league debut gave up three hits and a run in his one inning of work. Sean Green gave up a home run in his one inning of work. Takahashi gave up two hits, a walk and a run in 1/3 of an inning. The Mets did not get the big hit when they needed it. Jeff Francouer did walk again. Fernando Tatis' base running blunder on a passed ball reminds Mets fans of last year.

The good news is that Jon Niese goes tonight for the Mets. He very well could be the key to the rotation. It is also expected that Ruben Tejada will make his major league debut tonight. Jose Reyes also looks on pace to return Saturday.

The Ike Davis Watch continues as Mike Jacobs, in the cleanup spot again, went 1 for 5 with 2 strikeouts. At this point the Mets cannot have Jacobs batting fourth and performing so poorly after Wright and in front of Bay. If Jacobs keeps this up it will be interesting to see if Carter or Davis gets called up, but I do believe the Mets are going to give Jacobs the benefit of the doubt for at least April.
