Before remembering the Mets had a day game I was fully prepared to hear that the Yankees pitching woes were lessened by half. Granted, Hughes went out there and gave the NYY a performance they needed and NYY fans should be enthused with their prospects going forward. However, I anticipate Mike blowing this out of proportion, putting Joba back in the pen and putting to rest talk of NYY pitching issues.
After the Mets lost in the manner they did I am not sure where he'll start. This game had all the factors that Mike loves: bad bullpen work, no timely hitting, "core" failure in the "clutch" and lack of run support for one of his boyfriends.
So, which way will he go? The new golden boy or the standard whipping boy?
My prediction: Mets doomed season with this "core"
