Really Francisco Rodriguez ? Really? How? Well the Mets were up 5-3 going into the 9th. And K-Rod did what K-Rod does best, give Mets fans a heart attack. Except he went further and blew the game. I have to wonder how they put up with him anymore. Put Bobby Parnell as closer and cut K-Rod.

R.A. Dickey had one heck of a start today; however, thanks to K-Rod, did not get the win. He had a stellar start, outpitched Stephen Strasburg, and deserved a win, he really did. Dickey went 7 innings allowing 6 hits, 2 unearned runs, walking 2 and striking out 4. Parnell came in and pitched the 8th allowing 2 hits and a run. Then came K-Rod. He went a third of an inning, allowing 3 walks, 3 hits, and 3 runs. “I should be ashamed of myself. I’m so embarrassed, and I just want to apologize to the fans,” K-Rod said.

It isn’t all K-Rod’s fault, though I wish I could blame it solely on him. The Mets offense had opportunities to bring home more runs. They left the bases loaded in the first. They also had runners on first and second with no outs in the 9th and didn’t score any insurance.The offense sputtered and died.
