The Mets and Yankees conclude their three game set this afternoon with the rubber game.

He Did It! Turner Sets New Rookie RBI Record For Mets

Justin Turner drove in a run for the seventh straight game, establishing a new franchise rookie mark. Swoboda had RBIs in six straight games in August 1965. Turner’s line-drive single to right plated Daniel Murphy as the Mets took a 2-0 first-inning lead. Unfortuantely the Mets got clobbered 7-3, but let’s hear it for Turner. […]

So Far, So Good, Mets Hit .500 Mark

What a wonderful feeling it was to wake up this morning and find the Mets are finally at .500 again. As I wrote yesterday, I feel strongly that the Mets can win two out of three or even sweep the Yankees this weekend, and last night only confirmed that for me. The Mets also creeped […]

You know, a lot of people have tons of opinions about who the Mets should have acquired, or what they should have traded to get talent. If you’ve read my stuff, you know I’m in the camp of people who recognize Alderson has a 4 year contract, so I’m willing to give him 3-4 years […]

The Mets are winning again and are 17-9 in their last 26 games. Good starting pitching and timely hitting have certainly helped, but the bullpen has been absolutely phenomenal. The Mets bullpen has allowed only six earned runs in 51 1/3 innings in May, for a 1.05 ERA. Jason Isringhausen has been more than anyone […]

I’m Glad Terry Collins Is Ours

So far from what I’ve observed, I come away very impressed with Terry Collins who has conducted himself as a true professional and savvy baseball man. The way Collins handled the Carlos Beltran situation the past Spring was flawless and poetry in motion. He has an aggressive, but calm demeanor about him and has a professional way of […]

Mets Fans And Yankee Fans Have A Mutual Dislike For Each Other

An article by posted on May 20, 2011 0 Comments

Over the past few seasons a lot of the talk has been about how the Subway Series has lost it’s juice.  People say it’s not the same anymore.  Radio personalities say that once it moved from 3 games a year to 6 games,  and now alternating stadiums every year, that it became diluted. I disagree […]

Wow, Has It Really Been 14 Years Already?

I came across a post by John Schweibacher of WFAN who reminded me that tonight marks the the 15th season of interleague play. Where do all the years go? Believe it or not, the Mets were a franchise-best 13-5 in interleague play last year, not bad considering how the season played out. It was the most […]

Will The Mets Ever Throw A No-Hitter?

An article by posted on May 20, 2011 0 Comments

Dillon Gee gave the Mets a glimmer of hope in throwing the team’s first-ever no-hitter. However, like so many hopefuls before him, Gee fell short of making history. Though there have been some heartbreaking possible no-hit efforts in Mets history, the last two have been particularly hard to swallow, since the opposing team’s pitcher broke […]
