It's the Bullpen, Stupid

Jerry Manuel was sitting in the dugout, looking disgusted, as this time Joe Smith and Scott Schoeneweis were the Designated Hittees, blowing a 3-2 lead and John Maine's solid 7 innings by allowing a 5 run 8th and a 7-3 loss to the Marlins. I think Manuel will be hoping that the Mets can deal for one legitimate pitcher to ease this problem, but this hasn't even been rumored. There are rumblings about Ramirez and other hitters possibly coming over, but nothing to ease the one in-your-face weakness that the Mets have. And from what I have read, none of their minor league arms are going to step in and do it.
