An article by posted on July 18, 2009 0 Comments

The fact that Johan Santana won a game after the All-Star Break was nothing new.  After all, he’s now 59-17 in his career after the All-Star Break and 9-0 with the Mets.  The only thing new about it was the team he defeated. Santana pitched seven shutout innings and his teammates provided him with all […]

Buffalo 1, Toledo 0 Jon Niese is a straight up PIMP. He fired another complete game shutout (OK, so this one was of the 7 inning variety), allowing just 2 hits and 2 walks, and lowering his season’s ERA underneath 4. Over his last 8 starts, Niese has gone 5-1, with a 0.96 era. Spanning […]

For the first time in six years, the Mets began the second half of the season with a loss, falling a season-low 7 1/2 games behind the division leading Phillies.

The Mets went down to the Georgia and I guess the devil must have went down with them because that’s how gloomy things have been only two games into their second half of the season. Mike Pelfrey and the Mets handed the Braves an 11-0 win and in the process they fell to 8 1/2 […]

The Mets may have just lost Gary Sheffield to the disabled list after he pulled up lame trying to chase down a Yunel Escobar double. Sheffield caught up with the ball, flipped it to Angel Pagan, and grabbed his right leg in pain. After a long injury delay, he was escorted off the field by […]

As the second half of the season commenced last night, with a loss to a familiar foe (curses Chipper), it’s time for Mets fans to slam the door on the resident traveling salesman, Omar Minaya. (When he rings the bell close the blinds) Because whatever he’s selling; vacuum cleaners, encyclopedias, and most importantly-HOPE, you should […]

Binghamton 8, Erie 7 There needs to be a rule put into place in baseball whereby if you enter a game with a 3 run lead, and the game ends with a 1 run differential, you don’t get a save. Connor Robertson pitched horribly, giving up 2 runs on 2 hits and 2 walks in […]

Last night, while watching the Mets go down to the Braves 5-3, Gary Cohen repeated the score as the Mets headed into the ninth inning.  Out of the blue, Keith Hernandez wondered out loud when was the last time the Mets hit a three run homer. Neither he or Gary could remember when, and nor could […]

Unhappy Recaps, Slip-Slidin’ Away

I just read Vac’s Whacks in the Post. Mike Vaccaro is one of my favorite sports journalists, and I almost always incline toward his take on the Mets. This morning he pronounces the death knell for our 2009 season, Mets fans. I know I’m not going to win any friends or have any influence by […]

Losing Is A Disease

An article by posted on July 17, 2009 0 Comments

“Losing is a disease. …as contagious as polio.  Losing is a disease. …as contagious as syphilis.  Losing is a disease. …as contagious as bubonic plague.  Attacking one. … but infecting all.  But curable.” This is some dialogue that I’m sure most of you are familiar with.  It is taken from the movie “The Natural,” one […]
