3 Up & 3 Down: Hitting The Trifecta In Tampa Edition

The amazing quality of 2012 Mets is their ability to bounce back time and time again. It’s a team that you just can’t write off (and that’s something we haven’t seen from recent Met teams). After a wasted weekend up in the Bronx, the Mets went down to Tampa, to visit the Rays. The Mets […]

3 Up & 3 Down: The Cross-Town, All-Down Edition

The Mets lost all three games of the first installment of the 2012 Subway Series.

So this time out we […]

3 Up & 3 Down: A DC Power Shift Edition

To be fair, we have to say the Washington Nationals are a nice up and coming team. With a mix of young guys, like Bryce Harper, veterans like Adam LaRcoche, some great starting pitching, and a fantastic field manager in Davey Johnson, DC baseball fans should not be making plans for October! Our Mets were […]

3 Up & 3 Down: All About The Pitching Edition

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 […]

3 Up & 3 Down: The Happy Recap – Fabulous in Philly Edition

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 […]

3 Up & 3 Down: Wanted Dead Or Alive Edition

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 […]

3 Up & 3 Down: Rockin’ the Rockies Edition

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 […]

3 Up & 3 Down: The Happy Recap Edition

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 […]
