Panic at the Dolphin

Breaks are good. It’s not a bad idea taking a break every now and then. I know how hard you all work…my point is this: Break’s over.

—President Bartlet

OK, so maybe Dave Williams isn't the answer [1]. That was Uggla all around, but the starting pitching is where it begins and, against the Marlins, ended. Quickly.

Maine makes me nervous [2], Trachsel makes me nauseous [3] and now Williams has made me negate my previous enthusiasm for his playoff elevation. Given that our last three games this trio's hurled — and I do mean hurled — has produced a composite score of Others 30 Us 6, I withdraw my endorsement of any Mets pitcher who isn't Pedro, Glavine or El Duque. Right now, if we need a fourth starter in the NLDS, Mets in three.

Assuming we qualify for the NLDS.
