It’s been the same news for the American League for the past couple years. Pitch well, hit hard, win. That formula works for them every year they win, and it seems like they win every time they play. The All-Star Game isn’t just any interleague game; it’s like round one of the World Series, even though it’s not. The tagline for this year’s All-Star Game is, "..this game counts." In my opinion, it really does. [...]
The Mets ended the traditional first half of the season at 48 and 39, slightly worse than they did last year at this time, when they had a record of 53 and 36. It’s only a difference of five more wins and three more losses. But if you think about, considering all the injuries, the “iffy” pitching and defense, and the average offense they have been displaying, the Mets are in a fairly decent position [...]
Last night the Mets won in thrilling fashion as they beat the Astros 5-3 in a 17 inning marathon. The Mets started the game down 3-0 after the Astros took the lead scoring all their runs in the 4th inning off of Tom Glavine. Carlos Delgado then launched a 2-run shot in the fifth, and David Wright added a solo homer in the 7th to tie the game. The Mets blew opportunity after opportunity to [...]
MetsGal is off on vacation today, so you will all have to put up with an extra blog from me this week. Voting for the All Star Game never really bothered me as much as it does these days. To be honest, I never really cared about the selection problem so much, because the game didn’t really matter. It was just an exhibition game that showcased the games most popular stars. Today, however I do [...]
Omar Minaya did a terrible job of trying to improve the Mets this past off-season. I think we would all agree that he did a spectacular job in 2005 and 2006, but he has failed miserably in 2007. This was supposed to be the season we won it all. The team’s slogan "Your Season has Come" implies that the Mets will win the World Series. This team is clearly not a better team than the one that thrilled us in 2006. [...]
July seemed so promising for the Mets with a much anticipated winning streak, team spirit on the rise and players performing again. However, it might have just gone from easy cruising to hectic labor. From the injury-prone Moises Alou, to the latest DL stint of Oliver Perez, the Mets have some issues. Now, with four major players (Chavez, Alou, Sosa, and Perez) on the disabled list, someone needs to step up. Within the last four or five days, [...]
The New York Mets will have four players represent them in this year’s All Star Game. David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and Billy Wagner will all do us proud next Tuesday night in San Francisco. There has been much talk that John Maine deserved a spot on the NL roster as well, and I happen to agree. During last night’s Mets game, they conducted a viewer poll relating to the All Star Game. The [...]
Last Wednesday’s rain-shortened game against the Cardinals got my wheels spinning once again. And actually, my number one question came a day later: Why in creation did the Mets and Cards NOT play Thursday night’s game? What did Thursday have to do with Wednesday? I live literally 20 minutes from Shea (without traffic) and it was dry and clear from about 8:30 pm on. They could have played that game!! Were the Cardinals so afraid that the Mets would [...]

It feels like decades since the Mets last swept a series, but this afternoon they have a chance to do just that. What makes it even more enticing is that it comes against an old nemesis, the Philadelphia Phillies. It was the Phillies who last swept the Mets at Shea Stadium, and sent the Mets reeling into their worst slump in over three years. For a time it seemed the Mets were falling into a black [...]
