Mets get blownout 12-0, Concerns?

The story of tonights game was not the loss it was Pedro Martinez. Watching the game I kept thinking how high he was leaving in the strike zone. As a baseball player I know pitchers are not supposed to leave their pitches up and thats what Pedro did. Boy did he pay; Pedro gave up 7 runs on 8 hits in just 2 and 2/3 innings. This is not what we are looking for in his last start before the post season.

As of Now I am concerned about a few things....
1. The mets are ice cold now loosing 7 of their last 8 and only scoring a combined 23 runs avg. 2.875.
2. In the last 5 games the mets have given up 39 runs. Where did the pitching go.
3. I am also very nervous about who they are playing in the playoffs. The Mets need to face an easy opponent the first round to get on a hot streak. Lets hope the Astros and Phillies dont make it. Pitching.

A postitive note into tonights loss is David Wright continues to hit going 1 for 3. Prospect Phillip Humber who was the Mets first round pick, 3rd overall in 2004, had another good outing going for 1 inning and recording a strike out.
