The weather characterized the Mets' series with the Rays.

On a generally clear, Friday evening, Mets pummeled the Ray 5-3. Pitcher Fernando Nieve once again showed why he belongs in the majors, shutting down Tampa Bay to only one run on three hits. 

By Saturday and Sunday, rain clouds made their stop at Citi Field.

Even after the resurgence of Johan Santana, redeeming himself from his last disatrous performance, wasn't enough to stop Tampa's offense. Mets' offense on the other hand, did their dissapearing act again... Mets lose 3-1.

With Mike Pelfrey on the mound, their offense was the least of their problems. Pelfrey allowed four runs and gave no shot for a Mets victory yesterday.

Overall same problems exist for the Mets, and continue the win one, lose two trend.

Regardless of the Mets' performance the past few weeks, winning 4 out of their last 12 games, they are only 2 games behind the Phillies for the  NL EAST lead and 2 1/2 games back for a Wild Card spot.

Carlos Beltran is the new guy on the Mets' Disabled list thanks to his ailing knee.

Mets' next opponents don't get any easier. Pitcher Tim Redding will try to get his first win of the season against the "Machine", Albert Pujols and the Cardinals on ESPN at 7.
