Mets take two from the Giants with back-to-back walk-off homeruns, this time from Henry Blanco. Mets win 5-4 in 11 innings. Game Notes Johan Santana took the mound today and had a nice bounce back outing after giving up a personal worst ten runs in his last start. Santana went 7.2 innings, the longest any Mets starter […]

History Repeats Itself… 1988 Style!

An article by posted on May 8, 2010 0 Comments

The past four years have been very harrowing for all Mets fans; throughout this painful stretch I personally have been feeling a sort of deja vu.  It took me a while to figure out why, but now I know.  The 2006-2010 Mets are reminding me of the 1988-1992 Mets.  Scary isn’t it? The 1988 Mets […]

After 28 Games Mets Fans Remain Hopeful

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

On the one hand, I’m by no means convinced that the Mets are a legitimate playoff contender.  On the other hand they are much improved in virtually every facet of their game.  And that combined with relative parity in the National League certainly should keep the Mets in the Wild Card race as summer approaches.  […]

Home Is Where Their Heart Is

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets return home to take on the San Francisco Giants this weekend at Citi Field.  We know where the Mets’ hearts are (I’ll explain that in a moment); let’s just hope the Giants left their bats in San Francisco. The Mets went 9-1 on their last home stand, but followed that up with a […]

The Wright Stuff

When I filled out some paperwork for Joe D. I named David Wright as my favorite Met player.   I always say that, but I rarely discuss why  – it’s just so simple – he’s an all around good guy and good ballplayer.  David Allen Wright who plays third base for the New York Mets was born in […]

Niese Struggles, Mets Lose 5-4 in Extras…

An article by posted on May 6, 2010 0 Comments

Jonathon Niese was hit hard, and the Mets could hardly come up with a string of timely hits in their 5-4 extra-inning loss to the Reds. Game Notes: Jonathon Niese was hit hard, going six innings, allowing four runs, twelve hits including giving up a couple of homers. The only saving grace for Niese all night […]

Rod Barajas Seizing The Moment

An article by posted on May 6, 2010 0 Comments

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good.    When Omar Minaya’s failed dalliance with Bengie Molina culminated in the late February signing of veteran backstop Rod Barajas, he hit on Black Jack, Number 21.   Barajas has not only provided long-distance service, from a previously power starved position, he should also be credited (and Henry Blanco) with gaining […]

Please Help Murph Find A Home….

An article by posted on May 6, 2010 0 Comments

It’s getting that every day there is talk about Daniel Murphy and what his future holds. I was initially down with the idea of his trying out first base and seeing if he can adapt especially after the left field experiment went awry fast. With the emergence of Ike Davis, there is no doubt that […]
