“It’s very disappointing. We’re not happy with the way things have gone the last 10 days and we got to buckle down, get after it and get back over. We got a tough three games coming up, we got to pick ourselves up and get ready for them.” ~ Terry Collins Despite another great outing by Niese, and a valiant rally in the ninth, Ramon Ramirez let up five runs in the 12th and the [...]

Dickey held the first place Washington Nationals at bay to grab his 13th victory on the season and more importantly end the Mets six-game skid. Recap: In one of the more prominent matchups of the season, knuckleballer R.A. Dickey took the mound going head-to-head with the Nats’ all-star southpaw Gio Gonzalez. It quickly however became very clear that this [...]
Throughout this five game losing streak, there has been a tsunami of negativity following what was a very exciting and positive first half for the New York Mets. Yes they are in a rut in what is an awful time to do so, but that doesn’t mean in any way, shape or form that the Amazin’s are out of this race in 2012. Last night was a pitiful, backbreaking loss. After Niese’s excellent start, Valdespin and Thole’s clutch knocks [...]
Coming off the All-Star break, the Mets looked to hit the ground running like they did to start the 2012 season. Instead, they did just the opposite, playing three poor excuses for baseball games across the board as the Braves completed the sweep of the Mets today by a final score of 6-1. Following one of the aces getting rocked in Atlanta, the other [Johan Santana] took the hill to play stopper. Going toe-to-toe with [...]

Recap: It was simply not a good day for the New York Mets as the Cubs exploded for seven runs off of Jonathon Niese to take the rubber game of the final series prior to the All-Star Break by a final score of 7-0. Niese took the hill going toe to toe with Cubs ace Ryan Dempster and was hit hard from the get-go. Reed Johnson led things off with a single which opened the [...]
If there was ever any merit to the concept that clutch hitting doesn’t exist, that “theory” has been completely disproven by these 2012 New York Mets by one lone number. 185. After Thursday night’s incredible 6-5 walk-off victory over the Phillies, that number represents how many times the Mets have scored a run with two outs in the 2012 regular season. That number 185 is the best out of any team in the majors and [...]
It was a rough end to an otherwise exceptional series for the New York Mets as the failed to complete the four game sweep of the Dodgers, with poor pitching and sloppy defense being the name of the game as they fell by a lopsided score of 8-3. Dillon Gee got the nod for New York and labored through his outing to say the least. After Scott Hairston gave the Mets an early lead in [...]
