Whenever the Mets and Red Sox square off in their rare interleague meetings, even a casual Mets fan can’t help but think of the 1986 World Series.  Their seven-game showdown was one for the ages, culminating in the World Championship trophy being brought to Shea.  During this weekend’s interleague series between the Mets and Sox, […]

The unusual absence of our star closer had me concerned during the game. They spanned the bullpen with the cameras during the 9th inning as JJ Putz was on the mound, and Frankie was no where to be found. After the win, we waited for Jerry Manuel’s press conference because we knew someone would ask him […]

The Mets play game two of this inter-league series against the Boston Red Sox. Mets took game one despite the lack of defense behind Santana. “He’s making his pitches, and he’s executing his pitches, but we’re not executing on our end defensively,” manager Jerry Manuel said. “And to some degree, that has to be frustrating.

The Mets defense keeps finding themselves in all sorts of predicaments when Santana is on the mound. Seven unearned runs as a result of 11 errors behind Johan. Usually you rely a team’s defense to bail the pitcher out of a jam. In Santana’s case, it’s the pitcher who bails his team out of their jams. That’s how […]

We Won Despite Ourselves

 Every time I think Johan Santana cannot be any more brilliant or magic, he does something else that leaves me slack jawed all over again. And I’m not talking about his jawing with Youkilis or coming back to strike that turkey out after hitting him with what looked like a strike (Talk about Youkilis positioning […]

In honor of this weekend’s upcoming Indianapolis 500, I’d like to share my thoughts about speed.  I seem to have noticed that the Mets are having a little bit of a problem with their power this season.  Entering this weekend’s series against the Red Sox, the Mets were 15th in the National League in home […]
