Mets complete 6-4 road trip

The Mets' 8-5 loss to the Braves today shouldn't upset die-hards. They went 6-4 on their first extended road trip, winning 2 series and splitting one. Not bad. The Mets kick off a three-game match-up with the weak Nationals tomorrow at Shea.

Steve Trachsel's poor performance in today's game is par for the course for the Mets' No. 3 starter; win one, lose one. After Pedro Martinez and Tom Glavine, the rotation is thin and getting thinner with Brian Bannister on the DL (hamstring pull). Who will the Mets promote? John Maine, acquired in the Kris Benson trade, or Mike Pelfrey, their single-A phenom? I think it will be Maine - unless GM Omar Minaya makes a trade. Again, in light oif the Mets sudden shortage of starters, you have to question the wisdom of the Benson deal.

I'll be back in New York tomorrow after a week in New Orleans. I miss my Metsies.
