Mark Cohoon was absolutely crushed today, giving up seven runs on eight hits while striking out one and […]

Stranded Runners Doom Mets In 5-3 Loss To The Cubs

Well, we dropped this one to the Cubs 5-3 and these losses are getting hard to stomach. Summary So… Dillon Gee started this one and did not pitch horribly – but he did not pitch well enough to win on this Tuesday night. To be fair, it really was not a bad pitching performance, but […]

Mets Drop The Ball In 6-1 Loss To Cubs

Johan Santana started for the Mets and has been trying to regroup as he hasn’t pitched that spectacular since his no-hitter. He probably didn’t think he’d have a dueling war against the Cubs’ Travis Wood […]

Parnell Back As Mets Closer… Hold On To Your Butts…

Bobby Parnell is on the hot seat again as an oblique injury to Frank Francisco has once again led the 27-year old reliever to assume the role of Mets closer. It’s a role he’s held three times before, but never could retain for more than a week or two and never with any success. While […]

No freakin’ way!), it was no surprise that the first baseman was Keith Hernandez. But for Mets fans who go all the way back to the […]

Regrets… I Have A Few…

How many times have we seen this already this season… I’m talking about Terry Collins lamenting about what he could have done to prevent another bone-jarring moment in a Mets loss.

Hampson was 4-2 with a 2.13 ERA and two saves in 28 appearances with Buffalo, and lefty batters are hitting .218 against him this season. Hampson, 32, has a […]

Dickey Loses Cock Fight As Fowl Yankees Take Series 6-5

Think I could have crammed anymore chicken references into that title? Bottom line was this game was full of disappointments despite an amazin’ comeback by the Mets that was overshadowed by a night to be forgotten by R.A. Dickey, Miguel Batista and the entire ballclub. R.A. Dickey took the hill as one of the most […]
