Good morning Met fans. Last night's game was a bit tougher to swallow. Niese and the relievers pitched well, but the Mets couldn't get anything going. If it's against Ricky Nolasco or Josh Johnson, that's one thing. But to be shutdown by Nate Robertson? Well I guess coming to the NL really is like the fountain of youth for a pitcher.

Anthony Rieber writes about last night's game. Jon Niese had a "quality start," but Robertson and Burke Badenhop confounded the Mets in a 3-1 rubber game loss to the Marlins.

David Lennon talks about the mental and physical aspects that could make Mike Pelfrey a No.1 starter someday.
