Johan Santana pitched a complete game shutout, and hit his first MLB home run, and the return of Reyes attributed to the 3-0 win against the Reds. Game Notes Johan Santana had something that Mets fans have not seen in a while – life to his fastball, routinely clocking in at 91 MPH and occasionally hitting 92 MPH. Johan parlayed that increase in velocity that may be a sign his arm is finally approaching 100%, […]
In a game delayed almost two hours, Mike Pelfrey struggled but Jesus Feliciano helped set the table for the Mets, as they took the final game of the series against the Marlins, 6-5. Game Notes After a long rain delay, Mike Pelfrey was obviously affected adversely, getting beaten around. In four and two thirds of an inning, Mike Pelfrey gave up four runs on twelve hits with one walk and three strikeouts. The twelve hits […]
With all the uproar associated with those who even DARE mention Angel Pagan‘s name in a potential Cliff Lee trade, I thought it would be appropriate to explore a certain scenario. What if, just what if, Angel Pagan was putting up his 2010 numbers…… in another uniform. In other words, what if Pagan were on the Braves, hitting .302 with 4 HR, 35 RBI, 41 R, 14 SB and exceeding everyone’s expectations in nearly every way. […]
Hisanori Takahashi was annihilated in the third inning and the Mets, despite a ninth inning comeback, fell to the Marlins 7-6. Game Notes Hisanori Takahashi was great…for every inning not referred to as the third. Hisanori Takahashi went five and two third innings, giving up six runs including a Hanley Ramirez grand slam on nine hits with two walks and four strikeouts. Despite the third inning, Hisanori wasn’t all that bad, although he was hittable […]
It may have taken Jerry Manuel ions to figure it out, but since his decision to bat Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan first and second at the top of the order, this team has been exciting to watch. Jose Reyes has lit it up and now their is no doubt that he is 100% recovered from his leg injuries and on the fast track to becoming one of the most dynamic leadoff hitters in the game […]
The legend of R.A. Dickey continues to grow after pitching another masterpiece tonight in the Mets 5-0 shutout over the Tigers. Jose Reyes ignited the offense again with a huge game that included his sixth home run of the season. Game Summary Dickey just continues to dazzle everytime he takes the mound, confounding hitters with his formidable weapon, the knuckleball. Dickey pitched eight solid innings allowing just four hits and two walks while striking out […]
This is one of those posts that may incite a riot, but I’ll knock wood, and cross my fingers and toes when I say what I have to say…..that the Mets have had no serious injuries yet this season to key players. We won’t count Carlos Beltran, who had surgery back in January, or Jose Reyes, who began the year on the DL but joined the team shortly after. And we certainly won’t count underachievers […]
Many Mets fans on this site, spent a great deal of time debating whether outfielder Angel Pagan was capable of playing leftfield everyday or if he was nothing more than a good fourth outfielder. We had posts that wanted him as the leftfielder so that we could go after a starting pitcher over the winter rather than targeting Jason Bay or Matt Holliday. I myself, saw Pagan as a great fourth outfielder and wanted the […]
For the first time in 3 years, the Mets shutout the Yankees behind the great pitching of Hisanori Takahashi and the bats of Angel Pagan & Co. Game Recap Hisanori Takahashi went out today, and replicated his stellar performance against the Yankees, going 6 innings giving up 0 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Takahashi had the Yankees confused the whole night, drawing weak contact and holding at every point he […]
