Weekly Recap: 5/10-5/16

Standings:
Mets 21-15 —
Phillies 19-16; -1.5
Marlins 18-18; -3
Braves 18-19; -3.5
Nationals 11-24; -9.5

Week record: 4-3

POSITIVES:
– Brett Myers has been a lot better since his terrible start. In his 2 starts this past week, he went 6 innings, giving up 1 run on Sunday and went 7 innings, giving up 2 and striking out 8.

-Raul Ibanez has been absolutely phenomenal! He went 11-24 with 4 homers and 12 RBI’s.

-The offense has heated up versus the Nationals, hitting plenty of dingers in the pitcher-friendly park. They hope to continue it despite being in a current rain delay in the 2nd half of the double header.

NEGATIVES:
-Only a 3-3 record as they lost their series versus Los Angeles. They don’t have Manny Ramirez and the Phillies still failed to at least win the series. The offense was absolutely pitiful in that series

-Brad Lidge blew another save versus the Nationals but fortunately for him, the team scored 4 runs in the top of the 12th Friday night.

-Rollins is still batting terrible. As I said, he vowed to bat .400 for the month of May and is only batting .206 for the month despite being on a current 5 game hit streak.

Upcoming schedule:
5/17 – @WAS
5/19-21 – @ CIN
