Carlos Beltran has never been many things. He’s never been the most popular player on the Mets. He’s never been a media darling. He’s never been the vocal rah-rah type of leader some teams have. He’s never had to be any of these people because for years, Beltran has let his play on the field do the talking for him. Yet he still has his critics. There are some fans who will never forgive him […]
Carlos Beltran ERUPTED for three home runs, and that offense helped mask a subpar outing from Jonathon Niese and the Mets won the series by winning today, 9-5 versus the Rockies. Game Notes Jonathon Niese went six and one-third innings, giving up five runs on seven hits (two home runs) while walking two and striking out three. Although the final line does look ugly, most of the damage on Jonathon was done in the seventh […]
Mike Pelfrey went a strong seven and two-thirds innings, and the offense hit when it mattered and the Mets won the last game of the series, 5-2. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey had his second strong outing of the season, going seven and two-third innings, allowing two runs, one unearned on four hits, walking two and striking out five. Pelfrey had no help from his defense, which made two errors including one leading to a run. […]
R.A. Dickey was hit hard today, and despite two home runs and six runs of offense, the Mets couldn’t win today, with the bullpen coughing up the winning run, and losing in extra innings 7-6 to the Giants Game Notes R.A. Dickey was the victim of bad luck, an aggressive offense and an inability to locate his pitchers. R.A. allowed six runs on five hits in six innings, walking one and striking out one. His […]
At Aerys Sports, there is a fine conglomerate of baseball bloggers, headed up and written by women. Their resident Mets blogger, Kelly Lake who is the author of “The Curious Case of Sidd Finch,” raised an interesting question about the Mets a few days ago. She asked: When will the players be held accountable? It’s an incredibly fair question, and one I wanted to address myself. Lake’s raised a point about the blame game. Media […]
Let’s all be honest, we knew what this team was before the season even started. Not losing all faith yet, but the Mets may in fact be sellers at the deadline. Recently I was asked if the Mets would be sellers or buyers at the deadline, to which I responded buyers. However that was the optimistic side of me talking. Or maybe it was Sandy repeatedly saying comments like “We’re playing for 2011″. Either way […]
Game Summary Niese started off well but fell off the wagon near the fifth and sixth innings. Bullpen was great with three innings of relief. Belran, Pagan, and Murphy led the offense. Despite some positives, the Mets lose 5-4 to the Rockies. Game Notes Jon Niese started out with a great outing until he hit the fifth and sixth innings. He just couldn’t seem to shake Tulo today as he got three hits off Niese. […]
I am going to start this article off by adding the disclaimer that we are still only five games into the season. However, the Mets have gotten off to a quick 3-2 start. The team has looked good with the exception of Mike Pelfrey. It is already obvious that this is a different Mets team than the one we saw last year. Last year’s incarnation of the team would have just laid down and rolled […]
Updated 12:24 P.M. Apparently now Beltran will be playing simulated games for the next 2 days, while trying to get some fielding work in as well. If this goes well without a hitch, Beltran may play in a minor league game on Saturday. The Mets are essentially allowing Beltran to crawl into the season, as opposed to walk in their best efforts to try and get 500+ AB’s. They are taking account the feeling […]
