As the great Bob Murphy once uttered, “The damned thing is over.” That describes the sentiment as the Mets wrapped up this seemingly never-ending road trip with a four day, three game debacle at the frozen tundra known as Coors Field. I give you a very rare 6 Down and 0 Up edition of this series’ 3 & 3. THREE DOWN Gee Whiz: Dillon Gee was ineffective in the first game of Tuesday’s doubleheader going [...]
The Mets took both games of a weather shortened series against the Minnesota Twins this weekend, with a pair of games that offered something for everyone. If you prefer watching the Met’s offense, Friday night’s game was the game for you as the Mets trounced the Twins 16-5, highlighted by scoring five runs in both the first and second innings. If pitching is more your preference, then Matt Harvey delivered in a big way delivering [...]
The Mets drop their first road series of the 2013 season, losing 2 of 3 games against the hated Philadelphia Phillies. Here are the 3 Up and 3 Down from this series. Amazing Matt: Matt Harvey pitched the series opener on Monday night, and was spectacular once again. Harvey went seven innings giving up only one run. So far this season Matt is 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA and 19 (yes 19), strikeouts. Truth be [...]
The Mets concluded the weekend series against the stripped down Miami Marlins with a big walk-off win on Sunday afternoon. The opening homestand ends with the Mets going 4-2 winning both series! Here are this weekend’s 3 Ups and 3 Downs. Byrd’s Big Hit: Marlon Byrd was the hero Sunday afternoon with a walk-off base hit scoring Ruben Tejada and Kirk Nieuwenhuis. Tejeda was hit by a pitch, Nieuwenhuis then laced a single. Good aggressive [...]
The New York Mets wind up winning two out of three games in opening series against the San Diego Padres. All three games featured excellent starting pitching for the Mets, and the first two games featured some pretty decent offense for the Amazins’ too! Here are the 3&3 for the series. Matt Harvey: The kid was outstanding – make that brilliant – in Wednesday night’s game. Matt Harvey tossed seven shutout innings, and struck out [...]
It seems you just can’t watch the evening sports reports these days without hearing about how yet another Yankee “great” has landed himself on the disabled list. This week it was Mark Teixeira. The longtime Yankee first baseman will miss eight to ten weeks after an injury suffered while hitting balls off a tee during a workout for the World Baseball Classic. Teixeira will join Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez with longterm DL stints once the season [...]
On Saturday, February 23rd the Mets open up their spring training schedule with a game against the Washington Nationals. The game is schedule to be broadcast on SNY at 12:00 PM, and I plan on being in front of my TV and watching it… Baseball is back, and what could be better? For me, the 2103 season marks a personal milestone, it will be my 40th season as a Met fan. Not too bad considering [...]
All is right with the world… Pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie today and Spring Training games are right around the corner. It’s been a tough offseason weather-wise where I live. Superstorm Sandy kicked our butts in October, and this past weekend Nemo dumped about two feet of snow on my house. But no worries, baseball is back. In this edition of 3 & 3, the first of 2013, some thoughts on the [...]
I live in Northwest Suffolk County, on Long Island. I went twelve days without power at my house. Fortunately my house was not damaged and my friends and family were unhurt. My heart breaks and my prayers go out to everyone who is still suffering from this storm. My despise and scorn for the Long Island Power Authority will not dissipate any time soon. That said I learned a lot about myself, and I realize [...]
