Piazza gets hurt in the top of the first by a foul ball, so he's out of the game. Castro gets his place at bat and behind the plate.

I don't like this, not one little bit.....

And in his first at bat of the night, replaceMet Castro has an RBI double.

Piazza is going for X-Rays on his wrist.

Perhaps my adoptee Joe Hietpas should keep his suitcases packed....

Jason Lane makes a nice catch to end the inning. 1-0 Mets after one.

It's a 1-2-3 top of the 2nd for Zambrano.

Let's score some runs now!

Question for discussion: What's Victor Zambrano really like?

I don't recall ever hearing him interviewed and he's rarely quoted in the papers. I don't think this is because he still struggles with language.

I ask because back in the B.T.V. era this year (before the TV games returned) something funny happened during a game (I don't recall what) and Gary Cohen made it point to say "Even Victor Zambrano cracked a smile."

Is he a jerk? Standoffish? Depressed? Retarded?

Discuss as he lays down a sacrifice bunt.

Cameron batting with two on, two out after Reyes fans.

Cameron walks, loads bases for Beltran.

Carlos is 0-3 with the bases loaded as a Met.

Can we pretend Pedro's pitching so we can get a grand slam?

Hard grounder to first ends the inning.

Mets 1, Astros 0.

I'd been wondering the same thing about Zambrano. I don't think I've ever read a quote from him. (And you'd think he'd be asked about Kazmir.) Does he speak English? I really don't have any idea.

Uh-oh.

Floyd's hand gets stepped on by Biggio as he slides into second.

Trainer is looking at him as he walks off the field.

This could be a costly day.

Cliff gets a bandage and stays in the game.

Top of the fourth.

(It was his left hand that was stepped on.)

RBI double by Biggio (over Floyd's head) ties the game.

Mr. Excitement whiffs out a potentially big inning and it's 1-1.

If Cliff has to go it essentially leaves the Mets with only Woody on the bench. Minky and Cairo resting boo-boos.

X-Rays negative on Piazza's wrist. Day-to-day.

That's good news.

The Mets are in Oakland next week? Bad ass!

Astros up 3-1 on RBI hits by Ensberg and Lane in the seventh.

Ugly game for us offensively so far.

We really could use a couple consecutive hits.

This game is kinda boring

Rotblatt

This game kind of sucks.

I'd like a rally soon, please.

Are we just let down after last night?

Good point.

I think I'd get excited if we started hitting, though . . .

Wheels is on. I always liked Wheels. He's having a great season.

Some excitement as the Mets get two men on, but do not score.

Johnny Dickshot

I still don't believe in the Mets offense.

If Beltran is going to loaf around like he did tonight he may as well have gone on the DL.

I disagreed with bunting VZ with one out and Matsui on first. Why not have him hack and give Matsui a chance to steal? Tonight Ensberg showed that good things can happen if you only put the bat on the ball.

Frustrating game. We're going to have to hit better when the Angels arrive this weekend.
