6/14 - Athletics 5, Mets 0
The Mets returned to location of their first World Series loss -- the Oakland Coliseum -- and played not like it was 1973, but 1977. The offense has completely disappeared over the past two weeks, and the anemic showing against the A's journeyman starter Joe Blanton was downright disheartening. And Carlos Beltran's quad must be hurting him more than he lets on -- what other explanation could there be for such shoddy fielding and hitting?
