What a STINKER!! Oliver Perez went back to his old ways in this game although it would have been nice if the defense made some plays. Not sure why Randolph brought in Figeuroa to relieve Perez. I think he was scheduled to pitch on Saturday in Arizona. Dont think that will happen now. I think Randolph would have been better served leaving Perez in to pitch a few more innings to save the bullpen. Mets need more innings from their starters otherwise that bullpen is going to run out of gas at the end of the season when the Mets will need them the most.

Oliver Perez was absolutely horrid today. Only lasting an 1.2 and walking practically the whole Pirates lineup. This game is exactly like last year's game that Perez pitched against the Pirates at Shea when he imploded in the 5th or 6th inning. In last year's game he threw the ball down the 1st base line after he got himself into trouble!!! If we are going to be successful this year Perez has to pitch like he did his first three starts!

Likely my last game at Shea. Growing up a Mets fan, went to games and watched on TV, but my family long ago moved away. Came back for one last hurrah with a friend, first base box seats, but this game was a sorry affair for the Mets. Spent most of the time walking the stadium. Shea and the Mets were a magical part of my life as a kid; that's back when the blue/orange shingles were on the place. I will miss it.

This was the only Mets game I've ever been to. I'm a life-long Mets fan but have always lived in the south so don't really have many chances to go. The Mets lost 13-1 and looked like a high school team. To top that off, I got mustard thrown all over my Mets jersey by fans in the upper deck. It was still a cool experience but could have been better.
