The Mets Aren’t Quite So Scorching Anymore

The Mets lost again last night, one of those 2–1 crushers you'll be thinking about if the Mets somehow finish one game out of a playoff spot. (It also brought Fire Jerry Manuel out of a brief retirement, inspiring an explosion of rage.) Anyway, the Mets continue their four-game set in Washington tonight, and tomorrow's the fun one: It's Strasmus, with Stephen Strasburg taking the hill. For fun, a comparison between Strasburg and his opponent, R.A. Dickey. Strasburg: 2–2, 2.27 ERA, 48 strikeouts in 31 and two-thirds innings. Dickey: 6–1, 2.98 ERA, 38 strikeouts in 51 one-third innings. Imagine how close Dickey would be with an ulnar collateral ligament.
