Braves Set to Sweep Mets

The Mets are three innings away from being swept by the Braves and losing their fourth straight. If the Phillies beat the Marlins, it will be little consolation. One the one hand we won't lose a game to first place but on the other hand, we will get closer to dropping into the cellar.

To say this upcoming series with the Marlins is huge would be a major understatement. Anything less then a split will be catastrophic. While it would be too much to ask to sweep them, I'd take three out of four and go into Memorial Day with a smile on my face. Whether Beltran is ready will be a major indicator as to how well the series goes.

Mike Cameron continues to be the man. Since coming off the DL, he's been one of the Mets best hitters along with David Wright. Anytime you have an OPS over 1.100, it's something to be extremely happy about. Of course Cameron is a lifetime sub-.250 hitter, so we'll see how long it lasts.
