According to Steve Rosenbloom’s blog for the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs are looking into trading starting pitcher Carlos Zambrano during the off-season. Zambrano has been tired of all the criticism being thrown at him and has been quoted as saying, “Maybe if I go to a different city next year, if I get traded, I can do what I want.” More than likely, if the Cubs do find a team to trade Zambrano to, it […]
In 2007, the Phillies took the division from the Mets on the last day of the season after the Mets held a 7-game lead with 17 games to play. Pedro Martinez faced the Phillies once in those last 17 games and the Mets lost that game. In 2008, the Mets held a 3½ game lead over the Phillies with 17 games to play. Pedro Martinez faced the Phillies once in September and the Mets lost […]
John Maine made his return to the Mets after a three month absence from the team following the world’s longest rehab stint. Although he was limited to a pitch count of 60 pitches, he took the loss when the bullpen failed to keep the Phillies in the park. The efforts (or lack thereof) of Tobi Stoner and Lance Broadway prevented the Mets from pulling off another late-inning comeback, although they did try valiantly to do […]
Rest easy, Mets fans. It appears David Wright has finally paid his electric bill as his power has been turned back on. Wright had his best offensive game of the season, collecting two home runs (his first multi-homer game since September 14, 2008 against the Braves) and tying his career-high with six RBI. His second home run of the game, a two-out two-run blast off Ryan Madson in the ninth inning, led to a thrilling […]
Derek Jeter broke the all-time hits record for the Yankees when he collected his 2,722nd hit in the third inning of Friday night’s game against the Orioles. In honor of his great achievement, I would like to congratulate Ed Kranepool for being the all-time hits leader for the Mets. (You didn’t think we were going to talk about the Yankees here, did you? After all, this is a METS site.) Ed Kranepool spent his entire career […]
It was the Murph and Pelf Show at Citi Field on Sunday as Daniel Murphy provided the offense and Mike Pelfrey gave the Mets (and himself) a much-needed strong pitching performance. The one-two punch lifted the Mets to a 4-2 victory over the Cubs and gave them their first series victory in five weeks. The game started out with Mike Pelfrey and Cubs’ pitcher Randy Wells trading quick innings and economizing their pitch counts. It […]
For the first three innings of the game on a beautiful day for baseball, Nelson Figueroa appeared to be on his way to another stellar performance against the Cubs at Citi Field on Saturday. He was continuing his amazing strikeout run that he began last week when he fanned a career-high 10 batters at Wrigley Field. Then Figueroa faced the Cubs hitters for a second time through the order and he was done in by […]
Dan Warthen was named the pitching coach of the Mets last season on June 17 after the team handed out its now-infamous 3 AM pinkslips to manager Willie Randolph, pitching coach Rick Peterson and first base coach Tom Nieto in Anaheim during the West Coast version of the Midnight Massacre. Prior to his promotion to the major league club, Warthen served the same function for the New Orleans Zephyrs, the then-Triple A affiliate of the […]
Tim Redding’s late season renaissance continued, as he enjoyed his third consecutive solid outing. However, his enjoyment of the game was short-lived, as party pooper Brian Stokes gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning for the second time in five games, including a bases loaded two-run pinch-hit single to former Yankee Jason Giambi. The latest Rockie Rally gave Colorado a 5-2 victory over the Mets Wednesday night in Denver. Before the […]
