Mets lose to Pittsburgh and fail to get to 500 once again

The New York Mets lost to the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 3-1 and failed to get to 500 once again.  Mike Pelfrey started and pitched a really good game but not good enough.  The bats were very quiet in this one for the Mets.  The Mets have been hovering around 500 but that is twice now in the last week or so that they had a chance to get to 500 and failed.  The Mets will now head to Atlanta for three games against the Braves. 

The offense also wasn't there for the Mets.  The Mets have been getting good offensive production without hitting homeruns, they mostly get singles and a guy like Reyes hits doubles, triples steals some bases.  They are able to manufacture runs and they have been doing well with that.  They don't have David Wright or Ike Davis so they really have no choice.  Jason Bay used to be a power guy but isn't anymore.  Beltran is pretty much the only guy in the lineup with good power.
