The New York Mets wind up taking 3 of the 4 games against the St. Louis Cardinals, losing the finale on Monday afternoon. Since I work fulltime, it’s very hard for me to catch weekday games, but it’s really of no consequence, because this edition of 3&3 is all about some great weekend pitching by the Mets. 3 Up: Oh, What A Night: Friday night Johan Santana made Mets history, and also made a lots [...]
The Mets hooked up with new and, dare we say improved Pittsburgh Pirates for a three game set this week. The hallmark of these three games was just outstanding pitching by both teams. The Mets win the series taking two of three, and here are the 3 & 3. 3 Up: R.A. Dickey: R.A. Dickey pitched a gem on Tuesday night, going 7 innings giving up only one run, and striking out eleven Bucs. A [...]
The New York Mets started off this road trip in fine fashion by sweeping all three games from the Philadelphia Phillies. Each of the games were exciting, and could, in fact merit their individual 3 & 3, however in honor of the three game Philly sweep, we’re going to disregard the regular 3 & 3 format, extend the 1/2 inning and go with a six pack of ups!! 6 Ups: Jordany Valdespin: On Monday night, [...]
The New York Mets wound up the three game homestand by taking two of the three games against the Arizona D-Backs. Keeping the introduction as short as this homestand, here are the 3 & 3 from this series. 3 Up: Johan’s First Win: On Saturday Johan Santana notched his first win since September of 2010. Johan has pitched superbly, with the exception of one horrible start down in Atlanta. This time the Mets were finally [...]
If 3 & 3 were to borrow a page from the long running children’s show Sesame Street, this edition would be sponsored by the letters P & U. Those two letters sum up how the Mets performed in this three game series. We were so hard pressed to come up with 3 “Ups”, our guys from SNY make their season debut in that category. 3 Up: 1) R.A. Dickey: I honestly thought R.A. Dickey had [...]
The Mets win a three game weekend series against the Rockies, taking the rubber game 6-5 in eleven innings. This was a really strange series where we pretty much saw the unexpected. The Mets scored 9 runs on Friday night, only to see the Rocks score 18! One guy hit for the cycle, another hit a grand slam pitch hit home run, certainly not your generic, run of mill series. 3 Up: Johan & Gee: [...]
As part of the 50th anniversary season of Mets baseball, whenever the Mets sweep a series, we’ll call the entry relating to the series a “Happy Recap”. This series sweep is especially happy, because the Mets hung tough against two of the league’s elite pitchers, Josh Johnson & Mark Burhle. Also, a three game sweep against a division rival is always sweet. So with a wink and a nod to the legendary voice of the [...]
The Mets just wound up a four game weekend wrap-around series with the San Francisco Giants, winning only one of the four games. Sunday’s edition of Rain Out Theater, prompted a double-header on Monday night, with the Giants sweeping both games from the Mets. One would think with 36 plus innings of baseball played between these teams, 3 Ups would be easy, but the Mets were something awful, we had a tough time. 3 Up: [...]
On Wednesday afternoon the Mets wrapped up a three game series with the Atlanta Braves. After winning game one of the series, the Mets dropped the next two, both games marked by bad starting pitching. The good news is, the Mets finish a very tough six game road trip at 3-3 (You could say, 3 Up and 3 Down). 3 Up: Dillon Gee: Gee pitched a fantastic game Monday night going 7 innings while giving up [...]
The Mets had a pretty successful opening weekend in Philadelphia, beating the Phillies in two out of three games. After nine games, all within the Eastern Division of the National League, the Mets find themselves at 6-3. Not too bad at all. So here are the 3 and 3 from this weekend. 3 Up: It’s All About David: David Wright, broken finger and all, returned to the Met’s line up on Saturday. First pitch to [...]
The Mets wrapped up their opening homestand of the 2012 season with a 4-0 loss to Stephen Strasburg and the Washing Nationals. Wednesday’s game was billed as a big pitching match-up between Johan Santana and Strasburg, and also as a celebration of the first game ever played by the Mets. Roger Craig threw out the first pitch, and that was pretty much the only highlight for the Mets. 3-Up: Good Starting Pitching: Let’s give some [...]
