Mets Swept by Mariners

This was a pretty tough series to swallow. I know it's never easy when you travel to the West Coast, but the Mariners haven't done much this year, and to be swept by them goes to show you the up and down season the Mets have had.

Yesterday it was Pedro that lost a tight game. This afternoon, Tom Glavine was hit pretty hard. He gave up six runs and he didn't even escape the third inning.

Still MIA is Mike Cameron, and the news isn't great. In Will Carroll's Under the Knife it was reported that Mike Cameron is pretty beat up and that his injured quad is flaring up, among other things. If you don't subscribe to BP's premium content, Will Carroll's column alone is worth the price.

So with eight losses in their last ten games, the Mets now stand seven games back of the first place Nationals and 2 1/2 games back of the fourth place Marlins. They have a huge series starting Tuesday with a division rival (Phillies) and it doesn't get easier because they travel (if you can call it that) to play the Yankees at Yankee Stadium.
