Two words: Argenis Reyes.
Argenis is batting .225 against lefties in AAA this year.
In 24 big league at-bats against lefties, Argenis has a .167 BA and a .167 OBP to go along with that...yup, no walks and 6 Ks.
Jerry used him to pinch-hit, against lefthanded CC Sabathia with two men on base in the Mets lone rally of the night.
He struck out.
Dare I mention that Jeremy Reed is 4 for 4 against lefties this year?
Do I even mention the fact that Daniel Murphy is hitting .276 against lefties this year--8 for 29 with a HR?
Nah, I'll just shut the hell up and pretend I'm speechless.
Besides, the outstanding blogger Joe Janish of Mets Today does a heck of a lot better explaining Jerry's "positive spin" on the loss than I ever could.
