Blogger’s disclaimer: This recap will be full of sarcasm. I attended today’s game expecting to see a spirited effort by the Mets against their former teammate, Pedro Martinez. Instead I saw things on the field I never thought I’d see in person, things that pretty much sum up the 2009 season. Buckle up. The show’s about to start. On a day that was supposed to be remembered for Pedro Martinez’s return to Flushing as a […]
On a star-studded evening when the Mets celebrated the 40th anniversary of the 1969 Miracle Mets bringing home the franchise’s first World Championship, the 2009 Mets could not provide an amazin’ finish of their own as the bullpen spoiled a surprisingly good performance by Tim Redding. The Phillies were able to overcome being stymied by Redding through the first five innings and punished the Mets’ bullpen for four runs, eventually defeating the 2009 Miracle Whip […]
Billy Wagner returned to the Mets to make his first appearance in the major leagues in over a year, entering to a thunderous ovation from the Flushing Faithful. However, the Citi Field premiere of Enter Sandman did not help send the Braves to Never Never Land. Brian McCann pulled a long home run into the Pepsi Porch off Johan Santana in the fourth inning, which proved to be the difference maker, as the Braves held […]
Blogger’s disclaimer: This is a sequel to a previous post I wrote a few weeks ago. This might look like a humorous piece, but after the events of Saturday’s game surrounding the concussion suffered by David Wright, I’m starting to think the Mets might need to take the contents of this blog into consideration, even if it does involve fictional characters. Read on… After all this time being the sole representative of the so-called “core […]
On the day after David Wright was sent to the hospital with a concussion after experiencing a close encounter with a Matt Cain fastball, the Mets were able to give him a wonderful get-well present by defeating the Giants in walk-off style at sunny and hot Citi Field. Daniel Murphy lined an RBI single with one out in the ninth inning that barely scored Jeff Francoeur from second base ahead of the strong and accurate […]
It was 22 years ago today on a lazy Sunday afternoon at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The Mets were battling the St. Louis Cardinals for the division title and needed to win the finale of their four-game series against the Cubs after being defeated in the first three games. They were in the throes of a six losses in eight games streak after cutting the Cardinals’ lead from 10½ to 3½ games. In those eight […]
What was supposed to be a pitcher’s duel between Johan Santana and Matt Cain turned into another story altogether, as David Wright was felled by a 94 MPH fastball thrown by Cain. The Wright beaning was the most disturbing feature of today’s 5-4 loss to the Giants in 10 innings. Both Santana and Cain had cruised through the first three innings, putting up zeroes for both teams. Then Luis Castillo led off the fourth inning […]
Bobby Parnell made his first major league start at Petco Park on Saturday night, replacing fellow rookie Jonathon Niese in the rotation. Unfortunately, it was not a start to remember as the Mets could not reward him with a victory. New York dropped the third game of the four-game series in San Diego by the final score of 3-1 as their offense sputtered again. The defeat was their eighth consecutive loss at Petco Park, dating […]
It has been only 11 months since undergoing Tommy John surgery, but Billy Wagner has been progressing quite well in his minor league rehab assignment. He has made four appearances facing live hitters and is yet to give up a run. His fastball has been clocked at 94 MPH and most importantly, he has not felt any pain in his surgically repaired elbow. Although he has not pitched in back-to-back games, the team expects him […]
