Streak Ends with Marlins??

We all went into Friday brimming with confidence, chests out counting the 6th victory in a row for our resurgent Mets… Then came the 13-41 Marlins… The Mets 5 game winning streak ended in a bag 5-1 loss.  Marcum continued to pitch well for most of the night running into that one inning again that did him in.  The Mets office, which was not spectacular during the 5 game streak continued to struggle against a young Jacob Turner.  Today I am sure Terry Collins will switch up the line-up a bit and move Ike up after he had a grand total of 1 hit last night.  Lets see how Ike reacts…  

Realistically going into this series the hope was to take 2 of 3 from the Marlins.  This is still a possibility but going to be a tough task with Colin McCough going today.  Colin had one strong start in his career last year but has been a “Met” ever since.

The main story line and focus of today will be the Las Vegas 51’s where Zack Wheeler will be on the bump tonight.  If all goes according to plan Mr. Wheeler will be joining the Mets in a few weeks and be here to stay.  He was not brought up for today’s game the Mets did not want to send him back down after to stop his service time clock.  If he comes up on the expected June 17th date, his clock will be fine and he will be here to stay.
