5/8 - Brewers 5, Mets 4

"Milwaukee, where arteries go to die." -- Howie Rose of WFAN in the 7th inning of the game.

It's always a treat to listen to Howie Rose and Gary Cohen call a Mets game on WFAN, just because they're so damn funny. I caught yesterday's game via my old and almost wore out walkman because I desperately needed to get some laundry done. When Howie Rose said the above line while talking about the culinary choices they had during this road trip, I burst out laughing. And that's when the 12 other Mother's Day losers in the laundromat looked at me as if I'd grown an extra arm out of my torso.

This loss--ending a four game winning streak--highlighted the two biggest weaknesses of the Mets so far this season: Tom Glavine and the bullpen. Glavine once again looked like he was 49 years old on the hill, while the latest bullpen criminal was former Brewer Mike DeJean. On the plus side, Mike Cameron continues his amazing return from the disabled list, with two hits in each of his four games so far. That's certainly silenced the Victor Diaz choir for a while.
