Phucked Again!

An article by posted on June 11, 2009 0 Comments

Now, we don’t want to talk about “choking” anymore because that sends some Mets fans into a tizzy concerning overused and tiresome sports metaphors. Besides, who really thinks we choked tonight? We played great baseball, happened to blow another lead. I think, let me see if I have this right, the third straight lead in […]

How bad did Jerry Manuel want last night’s clash with the Phillies? Bad enough to spend his closer’s remaining bullets, Frankie Rodriquez, in a tie game for two innings, no less. Who says games in June don’t have the intensity of September affairs? Unfortunately, the Mets could not counter the Phighting Phillies number one asset-guile. […]

So much for all that talk about Citi Field being the place where would-be homeruns go to die… Last night, baseballs were flying out of Citi Field like nobody’s business as the Phillies and Mets combined to hit seven homeruns to set a new single game record and smashing the previous high of five at […]

Johan Santana was absolutely brilliant last night… no not on the mound, but at the plate. His RBI double in the sixth inning proved to be the difference maker as the Mets topped the Phillies 6-5. On the mound it was a totally  different story as Santana served up four homers, but on this damp […]
