In a stellar outing from R.A. Dickey, the Mets offense, especially Jose Reyes came alive and defeated the Phillies 8-0. Game Notes R.A. Dickey went out for his second appearance as a Met, and was dominant through 6 innings, giving up no runs on 7 hits with 3 walks to go with 7 strikeouts. The hits were scattered, mostly in the 2nd where Dickey loaded the bases and then got out of it, and in [...]
Hisanori Takahashi, making his first MLB start, delivered a solid outing but the Mets offense couldn’t buy a hit off of Yankees starter Javier Vazquez and took the loss 2-1. Game Notes Hisanori Takahashi couldn’t have done anything more impressive even if he tried today, stretching himself 6 innings, throwing 101 pitches with an absurd level of control. Takahashi struck out 5, gave up 5 hits and walked 1. The Yankees couldn’t put together multiple [...]
R.A. Dickey made his first start as a Mets filling in for the recently DL’d Jon Niese and delivered a quality start, but the bullpen faltered and the Mets lost 5-3 to the Nationals Game Notes R.A. Dickey went out for his first Mets start, going a solid 6 innings giving up 2 runs on 6 hits with 4 walks and two strikeouts. His knuckleball was dancing around the plate, and getting some swings-and-misses. He [...]
*insert David Wright inadequacy rant here* That is how I choose to begin my article. David Wright looks horrible at the plate, righties are killing him with sliders away and anyone with a fastball has a 33% chance to strike out Mr. Wright. He’s walking a fair amount, but it means nothing when he can’t drive anyone in. David Wright has hit in the 3rd and 4th position in the batting order all season, and [...]
Johan Santana went seven strong innings, but an errant David Wright throw proved to be the difference in the bottom of the 9th as the Mets lost 3-2 to the Atlanta Braves. Game Notes Johan Santana had his second straight stellar outing, going 7 innings, giving up 2 earned runs on 5 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 4. Johan looked like he was going to be in trouble for the whole night, already [...]
On a rainy day at Citi Field, Mike Pelfrey matched Craig Stammen but K-Rod couldn’t keep the Mets in the game, and they lost the rubber game to the Nationals 6-4 Game Notes Mike Pelfrey went to the mound and delivered a decent performance, going 5 2/3 of an inning, giving up 4 runs on 7 hits with 3 walks and 6 strikeouts. Pelfrey struck out 5 of the 6 banners he did on the [...]
In a game that was looking like the Nationals would take it, the Mets worked around a bad outing from Jon Niese to stage an 8th inning comeback and win 8-6 Game Notes Jonathon Niese went out today, and was in trouble from the get-go. He would only finish the day going 4 1/3 innings, giving up 6 hits, 5 walks and 3 strikeouts – one of his hits going to Adam Dunn. Niese recovered [...]
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 was his ability to stay away from the walk, and that was evident in his propensity to give up hits [...]
John Maine came out and pitched a great game, and Rod Barajas came through in the 9th inning with his seventh homerun of the season for a 5-4 win against the Cincinnati Reds Game Notes: John Maine went to the mound and put up another solid performance over six innings. Maine gave up two runs, one unearned and the other one on a solo home run in the 1st inning. Maine also struck out six, walked [...]
There was a point in time, eons ago (actually, about a month ago) when everyone in the world of Mets fans, mostly the blogosphere was going ballistic at the Mets handling of the Nelson Figueroa situation. It was seen as a slap in the face to the man, but statistically as well as from the standpoint of improving the team I will analyze it in 3 points, and address his “successor”. It Was POORLY Handled. [...]
The Mets came out of the gate playing with some fire in their bellies, helping Jon Niese pick up his first win of the season as they crushed the Phillies 9-1 to extend their winning streak to eight games. Game Notes Jonathon Niese looked lights-out all night going seven innings – giving up four hits, walking one and tying a career high with seven strikeouts. Niese was in control from the second inning on, not allowing a [...]
