Game 26 Recap: Mets 4, Braves 3

Smack dab in the middle of suck. The waste of space, Garret Anderson, returned to the lineup today and promptly went 0-for-4 and a GIDP -- great decision not to accept that rehab assignment Garret.

Kenshin Kawakami looked slightly better, but he still looked shaky, and Mike Gonzalez had a rough outing and was unable to hold the game close which ended up being the difference after the Braves scored a couple off of K-Rod in the ninth.

We are playing some miserable baseball right now.

It is becoming readily apparent, if it hadn't been up to this point, that we need another big bat in the lineup -- someone to hit effectively behind Chipper and hit for power. It occurred to me today that this team is offensively just about the same team that desperately needed Mark Teixeira two years ago. In two years, we really haven't found a fix for our offense, and until we do, we're going to keep losing like we have.
