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 […]
If you want to talk about underwhelming, just take a look at Bobby Parnell’s debut as a starting pitcher… Against one of the worst teams in the league, Parnell would only last two and a third innings pitched, and allow two runs on four hits, three walks, and a hit batsman. He struck out just one batter. Last week when it was revealed that Parnell would join the rotation, I asked, How can you be a starter, when […]
Bobby Parnell made his first major league start at Petco Park on Saturday night, replacing fellow rookie Jonathon Niese in the rotation. Unfortunately, it was not a start to remember as the Mets could not reward him with a victory. New York dropped the third game of the four-game series in San Diego by the final score of 3-1 as their offense sputtered again. The defeat was their eighth consecutive loss at Petco Park, dating […]
It has been only 11 months since undergoing Tommy John surgery, but Billy Wagner has been progressing quite well in his minor league rehab assignment. He has made four appearances facing live hitters and is yet to give up a run. His fastball has been clocked at 94 MPH and most importantly, he has not felt any pain in his surgically repaired elbow. Although he has not pitched in back-to-back games, the team expects him […]
The Mets bullpen got off to a great start and quickly staked its claim as the best in the National League after an off-season overhaul. But as the season wore on, and the bullpen innings continued to mount, we began to see some cracks as May came to an end. Jerry Manuel was quick to take the blame for his ineffective bullpen lately, but there’s more to it than that. “What I need to do […]
Game Summary The Mets lost another one of those games that could have easily been a win for them if not for shooting blanks whenever they needed a timely hit. The Orioles outscored them 6-4 despite a 12 hit attack from the Mets offense. Game Recap Tim Redding, making his sixth start of the season started off solid but in the end he was charged with four runs on seven hits in 5-1/3 innings, including a […]
Adam Rubin is now reporting that J..J. Putz has lost his eighth-inning role to Bobby Parnell. He was informed during a meeting with Jerry Manuel on Wednesday. Manuel hoped the change would be temporary, until Putz rediscovers himself. Putz will be the primary seventh-inning reliever. “Hopefully this is a small, small window for him to get right,” Manuel said. “This is not long term.”
Colin Stephenson of the Star Ledger, wrote an interesting article focusing on yesterday’s eight inning when Jerry Manuel yanked J.J. Putz and replaced him with Bobby Parnell. He writes, Did Manuel have any hesitation to bring in the rookie to relieve the veteran, former closer Putz? “I brought him in, didn’t I?” Manuel snapped when asked the question. Manuel has made no secret about how much love and trust he has for Parnell, the hard-throwing […]
