Mets Lose Game, Santana for the Season

Well after the press conference to announce the Mets have lost Johan Santana to his second consecutive season-ending shoulder surgery, the Mets went out at lost to the Phillies 8-4 (box score).

Jenrry Mejia has been less than awesome so far as a starting pitcher for the Mets, granted last night he faced a hot Phillies team with a powerful left-handed line up.  BUT, that shouldn't matter because if Mejia wants to be a major league starter he's going to have to beat teams like the Phils.  And if the Mets want a real rotation next year they're going to need Johan Santana back in top-form.

In conclusion, yesterday was awful. 

Kyle Kendrick and Mike Pelfrey face off this afternoon at 4:10.
