Mets vs. Astros-Battle of last place teams

The New York Mets lost to the Houston Astros last night by the score of 6-1 and with that loss have the worst record in baseball.  The Mets have not been playing well or getting any good news off the field either.  Here are some notes and the lineups.

Bobby Parnell was placed on the 15 day disbled list today.  He had numbness in his middle finger after the game last night.  Jason Bay will be activated tomorrow, Terry Collins wanted him back four days ago but had to follow organizational protocol. 

Jason Isringhausen has been annointed the eighth inning guy by the manager.  Chris Young will throw today and most likely he will pitch in a simulated game tomorrow.  The Mets will not replace Parnell until tomorrow when Bay comes back. 

Mets Lineup:Jose Reyes, Josh Thole, David Wright, Carlos Beltran, Ike Davis, Angel Pagan, Willie Harris, Daniel Murphy, R.A. Dickey.  Dickey will try to regain what he had last year as he has had a couple of rough starts, the Mets need a good start out of their starters as their bullpen has been bad and overworked. 

Houston Lineup:Bourn, Sanchez, Pence, Lee, Wallace, Hahnson, Hal, Towles, Norris

The game is at 7:05 and will be on SNY, enjoy the game if you dare to watch.  The Mets aren't drawing much and with their poor play and the Knicks and Rangers both in the playoffs it seems they have lost some fans to those teams and sports for now.  If they want to bring the fans back they need to win some games.
