The Mets salvaged the final game of the series and avoided a second consecutive sweep thanks to starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey. The game looked like a colossal mismatch on paper as another makeshift Mets lineup took on one of the best starting pitchers in the game in Jovani Gallardo. Gallardo absolutely dominated the Mets and struck out 12 batters, but in the sixth inning the Mets were able to get to him when Luis Castillo [...]
Binghamton 3, New Hampshire 5 Eric Brown, starting in place of Jenrry Mejia (they wanna keep Mejia’s innings down to around 125), went 4 scoreless before giving up 4 in the 5th to take his 8th loss. Edgar Alfonzo pitched 2 scoreless innings in relief of Brown. The Mets offense had just 5 hits and 2 walks in the game, while going a putrid 1 for 10 with RISP and leaving 5 on base. Jose [...]

I started to think, is Santana the ace he was in April and May or is this worst stretch of his [...]
I used to consider the Mets my therapy and my stress relief from the daily grind, never did I believe that they would become the source of my angst. I thought for sure that we were going to win it all in 2009 after we signed K-Rod and traded for Putz. I really wanted to get a big bat for leftfield too, but despite that unfulfilled wish I still thought we closed the gap between [...]
When we look back at the 2009 Met season, we will remember it as the year of injuries. The amount of injuries to hit this ballclub before the All Star Break is simply incredible. Met fans, the press, and Gary Cohen are all imploring G.M. Omar Minaya to make some sort of deal. I am against the Mets making a deal. At least right now. The reason is simple, there are just so many holes [...]
