Those Damned Phillies… Just When You Thought They Were Out…

The Mets lost again last night, succumbing to the Washington Nationals by a score of 5-3. One night after being mathematically eliminated form winning the NL East, they established a new franchise record for the longest home streak of scoring three or fewer runs per game. The last time the Mets scored more than three runs […]

Mets Offense Fails To Back Up Dickey In 5-3 Loss

The Mets (65-77) lost to the Nationals (88-54) by the score of 5-3 on Tuesday evening at Citi Field. I was pretty disappointed tonight. It was just a bad display of Mets baseball. The post-game media did not make it any better. Today is September 11th, 2012. 11 years since a horrible tragedy – and on […]

Shortstop Ruben Tejada Has Been On A Downward Trend Since May

During last night’s FOX broadcast of the Mets/Braves game, Kevin Burkhardt mentioned that Ruben Tejada had been slumping in September and looks tired and out of gas. That’s been the consensus lately by some of the beat writers in the last two days as well, but this decline by Tejada goes back much further than […]

Could Gregerson and Andrus Be Trade Targets For Mets This Winter?

With the season entering its last few weeks, there are few things left for Mets fans to be excited about. Of course there are exceptions such as Dickey’s run at the Cy Young award and getting to see some of the younger players, such as Jeurys Familia and Matt Harvey. The focus, for the most […]

Braves Pummel Hefner And Mets In 11-3 Bashing

The Mets (65-74) lost to the Braves (80-60) by the score of 11-3 on Saturday evening at Citi Field. Apparently, Kris Medlen is not beatable. (How the hell do you win 19 straight games under one pitcher?). He did, however, lose his no-ER run streak against the Mets. I guess that is a moral victory. But […]
