I read a great article last night from David Lennon of Newsday, that I believe most of you will enjoy. Lennon got together with Carlos Beltran after the Mets lost to the Cardinals, and the former Mets center fielder looked back fondly at his time with the Mets and talked about his first years with the team when he helped David Wright adjust to the big leagues. But what I found most fascinating was what [...]
How cool is that Tron graphic from Kelly? I asked her if she would make me a cool graphic to go with my post and in a matter of nano seconds she emails me this. All Mets sites feature great posts to read, but to have artwork like Kelly’s mixed in with all of our rants and raves really adds a different character and flair to MMO. Thanks Kelly. After many great posts from my fellow bloggers [...]
After a beautiful Mothers Day yesterday with my son and family, I was feeling so inspired and creative that I decided to spend my evening having some fun and making some new Mets graphics. I hope you like them. All spring long as Carlos Beltran sat out game after game in order to as he said “be able to play all the games that count”, the naysayers said he couldn’t do it, he must still be [...]
Game Summary Wow, one of the best games of the year! The Mets were able to ride high on the strength of three homeruns and Santana’s seven innings pitched to win game one against the Phils 6-5. Pitching Johan Santana had a decent start only giving up one hit through the first three innings. He had trouble in the fourth inning giving up back-to-back homeruns to Howard and Ibanez, followed by another two out hit from Rollins. Santana [...]
Game Summary Mets bounced back from last nights awful effort and defeated the Nationals 7-0. Livan Hernandez had another stellar start, and the offense helped out with five runs in the first inning, and more runs in the seventh and ninth innings. The Mets win the series two games to one. Pitching Livan Hernandez continues to impress and gets the win against the Nationals after a stellar performance. Livan held the Nats scoreless and didn’t allow a hit through the [...]
Round One On Friday June 4th after the Mets got swept by the Pirates, Carlos Beltran said he was embarrassed. “We have to play better. There’s no doubt we have to play better. I mean, we have to take this personally. It can’t happen. It can’t happen us being able to come here and lose three games just like that. It just can’t happen. Three games with this team – I know they’re a big-league ballclub, but [...]
Game Summary “Worst loss of the season” Keith Hernandez says it all. Mets gave up a 5-0 lead to the Bucs after the bullpen failed to hold on. Late runs were absent as well as all the Mets runs came in the first 3 innings. Mets lost game one to the Pirates 8-5. Pitching Livan Hernandez started the game off well, not allowing a run till the 4th inning, despite allowing the lead off hitters to [...]
Game Summary This game wasn’t one of the best the Mets have had this season. Starting pitching was clearly the weak point, and the offense didn’t help much either. Mets winning streak snapped at 4 games as Mets lose 7-3 to the Marlins. Pitching Tim Redding had a rough outing as he gave up four runs by the third inning, giving up several hits, and an error by Tatis. Redding continued to struggle as he he gave up a three-run homerun [...]
Game Summary The Mets Sweep! It may have not been the prettiest win of the season, but the Mets beat the Nationals 7-4 tonight and completed the sweep for their third straight win. Johan Santana clearly didn’t have it today, but luckily the offense picked him up and he was able to walk away with the win. Daniel Murphy had a big day at the plate with three hits including a double and a homerun [...]
The Mets got help from technology…again, as they took game one against the Nationals at home. The Mets look to keep on a winning streak as Livan Hernandez looks to get his fourth win as he is 3-1 with a 4.93 ERA. The Mets will go up against the Nationals’ rookie pitcher Craig Stammen who is 0-0 with a 5.68 ERA. Hernandez lost his first game against the Nationals in 2006, but since then he’s posted a 3.34 ERA while [...]
Earlie today Mets manager Jerry Manuel was a guest on Mike Francesa’s radio show. There were some interesting things said by Manuel. Daniel Murphy: Manuel pretty much said that the Daniel Murphy outfield experiment is dead and over with. Murphy will have the next 4 games to prove himself a capable first baseman, otherwise Murph will not be an everyday player. Also sounds like Murphy will not be getting a lot of at bats against [...]
