Lincecum, Schmincecum… That’s all the Mets had to say as they completed their biggest comeback of the season and beat the Giants 8-6 on Friday night. It was a game that featured many layers of clutch hitting, clutch baserunning, clutch fielding and a little bit of luck on this very Freaky Friday. Livan Hernandez started and he was opposed by Tim Lincecum in what looked to be a major league mismatch, and after the first two […]
Last night, I was feeling a little masochistic and I decided that a self imposed torture of listening to WFAN after the game would do the trick. It did. I did manage however to hear an interesting call about Dan Murphy that managed to find a way to sneak in between all the ”Jerry Manuel sucks” calls, and the “this team has no grit” calls. The caller argued that the fascination with Dan Murphy is growing old, and that the […]
Game Summary The Mets (10-12) beat the Philadelphia Phillies (11-10) 7-4 in the first game of a make or break series for the Mets. Mike Pelfrey wasn’t spectacular, but pitched well enough to get the Mets back on track and pick up the win. The Mets bats came alive in this one scoring early and often. Mets Pitching Mike Pelfrey improved his record to 3-0, holding the Phillies to just three runs on seven hits. He walked four batters in 5.1 innings and […]
Fernando Tatis will be at first base tonight when the Mets take the field against the Florida Marlins. Carlos Delgado who was originally scheduled for a day off on Wednesday, will sit this one out due to a sore hip. For Tatis, it will be his first start of the season at first base. Delgado won’t be the only regular player riding the bench for the game, as left fielder Daniel Murphy will be keeping […]
Dan Murphy is a good kid and a hard worker, as Jerry Manuel said yesterday, “He has done everything we have asked of him”. His performance at the plate has been solid and he currently wields a .320 average to go with his team leading 12 runs scored. As a table setter and number two hitter, you can’t ask for much more from a player in his first full season in the majors. So what’s […]
I guess a three game sweep was too much to ask for as the Mets wasted plenty of scoring opportunities and fell to the Brewers 4-2. The problem with this loss is that the Mets squandered a gutsy start by Nelson Figueroa who did all he could manage to keep the Mets in the game and within striking distance. Figueroa pitched six innings and allowed 3 runs on just five hits while dealing with an […]
The Mets bullpen is the talk of the town after yesterdays opening day performance. They were also the opening story on ESPN’s Baseball tonight and MLB Network’s MLB Tonight. I can definitely get used to more of this! Was it just me or did Ryan Church look extremely motivated yesterday? I mean extremely motivated! The best part was that remarkable diving catch and getting up to fire a bullet to double up the runner for […]
As I posted earlier, the Mets could be on the verge of signing Gary Sheffield as soon as tonight. In addition to the sources I already mentioned this morning, Joel Sherman of the NY Post adds a little more clarity to the situation and writes, The Mets are closing in on signing Gary Sheffield, likely today, with an eye on giving him significant playing time, according to two people involved in the talks. “Unless something drastic […]
The Mets outfield has some question marks going into the season – but it should have the depth to be solid all year. Other then Jeremy Reed replacing Endy Chavez, it will look similar to the end of the last year. Although it has some questions, the pieces fit together nicely to give it depth should anyone not live up to expectations. In left field, Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis figure to split time – […]
