So another month ends in what seems to be the never ending saga of the 2009 Mets. In a month where the Mets put together only 10 wins, it’s hard to find hope in a lost season. No Met pitcher had more than 2 wins in August. It’s a bittersweet twist because it’s much easier for me to find a standout player, but i’d much rather have the problem of not knowing who to choose […]
In the words of the legendary 1990′s grunge band, Soundgarden’s lead singer Chris Cornell, the Mets have “fell on black days”. This season has been one filled with injuries, heart break and disappointment. There haven’t been many bright spots as we head into the final full month of the regular season. Even the younger unproven intriguing players players, who were called up, such as Jon Niese and Fernando Nieve, have been stricken by injuries that […]
When Johan Santana was disabled with a season-ending injury, the Mets knew his replacement would have some big shoes to fill. Since replacing Santana in the rotation last week, Nelson Figueroa has done his best to pitch like the Mets ace. Today, he pitched into the eighth inning and struck out a career-high 10 batters, as the Mets avoided being swept out of Chicago. Figueroa’s dominant performance and the hitters’ ability to strike early and […]
The Mets put on an Amazin’ exhibition of power and offense for the two fans who showed up this afternoon at Land Shark Stadium to see the Mets beat the Marlins 10-3. Tim Redding started and allowed three homeruns, and yet somehow these Miracle Mets were able to pull off the upset victory and avoid a sweep in Miami. Redding was fortunate that all three bombs were of the solo variety. He ended up pitching […]
The Mets played a Monday matinee at Citi Field today and Bobby Parnell pitched well…to every hitter not named Ryan Howard. Howard hit two home runs off Parnell to score the first five runs of the game for the Phillies. That was all the offense they needed as they were able to defeat the Mets by the final score of 6-2. The loss was the third straight for the Mets to the Phillies after winning […]
I don’t like Shane Victorino, and I don’t like unassisted game-ending triple plays. I also don’t like the fact that although I continue to say I can believe in Oliver Perez, he continues to give me every reason not to. For anyone who was wondering, Perez’s contract ends in about 798 days. Although the week could’ve been worse, I’m convinced I have seen the Mets lose in every conceivable way known to man. However, there’s […]
Blogger’s disclaimer: This recap will be full of sarcasm. I attended today’s game expecting to see a spirited effort by the Mets against their former teammate, Pedro Martinez. Instead I saw things on the field I never thought I’d see in person, things that pretty much sum up the 2009 season. Buckle up. The show’s about to start. On a day that was supposed to be remembered for Pedro Martinez’s return to Flushing as a […]
The Mets donned their throwback jerseys and defeated the San Francisco Giants by a score of 3-0 tonight at Citi Field. The Mets combined some solid pitching and timely hitting to win their second straight game. It was a nice way to start their longest homestand of the year. Bobby Parnell delivered an electrifying performance tonight as he held the Giants to just three hits, all singles, in six scoreless innings. Parnell threw 61 of his 86 pitches for […]
As I’ve been watching our beloved Mets this season, going through cases of Pepto-Bismol and Alka-Seltzer, I’ve still kept an interest in seeing the team win, no matter how many games out of first we’ve been. Recently, it’s gotten much tougher to get genuinely excited over wins, though having them spaced so far apart does help increase the excitement when we get one. But, for the first time in a few years, I have a […]
