In Doug’s Dugout today we discuss: The Status Quo, Changes, and other mindless random thoughts. The best part of going on vacation is returning to the comforting surroundings of home. At least, that’s what I tell my kids. If you don’t like sleeping in your own bed then buy a new mattress. Came back from two weeks in Maine (a plug for Acadia National Park) and was sad to learn the Mets are in the […]
There was an article by Mike Puma in yesterday’s NY Post that caught my attention. Mr. Puma states that Jeff Wilpon wants to trade Carlos Beltran, even though a trade appears unlikely because of his salary and his recent injury history. Although it is true that Beltran has not performed like the Carlos Beltran of old, I believe the Mets are being too quick on pulling the “let’s trade Carlos Beltran” trigger. Let’s review a […]
What a sleeper… The lifeless Mets were no match for the resurgent Astros who beat the Mets by the score of 4-1 in the second game of their weekend series at Citi Field. Game Notes Johan Santana was trying to become the first Mets starter to hurl four straight complete games since 1988, but it was very apparent early on that Johan wasn’t going to make it to the ninth… or the eight… Usually it’s […]
After a shaky end to a solid R.A. Dickey outing, the Mets showed some fight, coming from behind late to defeat the Marlins 6-5. Game Notes R.A. Dickey had a solid outing today, and everything was going smoothly until the seventh inning. In that inning, R.A. allowed the first two hitters he faced to reach, and after a ground-out fielders choice and a pop-out, he allowed a three-run home run to Gaby Sanchez. Dickey’s final […]
I read a solid article entitled “What If Billy Wagner Never Got Hurt?” by Brian Joura of Mets 360. Brian not only contemplates what could have been in the second half of the 2008 season, but also what might have transpired if the Mets signed an outfielder instead of K-Rod later that offseason. We have seen how good Wagner has been this season. If Wagner had not been injured in 2008, the Mets probably have […]
After another great outing by R.A. Dickey spoiled by a home run in the ninth, the Mets would take the win in the 14th inning by a score of 3-2 Game Notes R.A. Dickey – today he was hittable, but he scattered those hits well. R.A. went eight and one-third innings, allowing two runs on nine hits with one walk and six strikeouts. R.A. was never really in trouble, putting runners on but not giving […]
The Mets take the series opener against the Astros, 3-1. The last time the Mets took the road opener, was back on June 18th against the Yankees. Almost two months ago. Jon Niese had another great start but walks away with a no decision. The offense supplied some late inning support to win the game. The bullpen did their job for two shutout innings. Mets get back to .500 on the season. Game Summary Jon […]
The Mets lost game three to the Phillies, 3-1 tonight and lose the series. Mike Pelfrey had a decent outing, not exactly like his last start, but an outing that the Mets could have won on. That is if the Mets had any offense. Six hits, one run tonight. Thanks to Jose Reyes’ solo homerun in the third inning. Mets bullpen did well, two scoreless innings. Mets fall back to one game under .500. Game […]
R.A. Dickey was masterful, allowing ONE HIT all game and giving the Mets their second straight shutout in a row. Game Notes As Joe D mentioned in his post, Dickey was OUTSTANDING. Dickey allowed one hit over nine innings, walking one and striking out seven. Dickey was never in trouble, and minus one walk got through most innings with limited pitches, including three innings of exactly nine pitches. Its ironic that the only hit Dickey […]
