The Mets end up losing 6-5 to the Nationals on a walk-off hit for Pudge Rodriguez off of closer Frankie Rodriguez in the bottom of the ninth. It’s the 10th time the Mets gave up the lead in the opposing team’s final at bats. Game Summary R.A. Dickey gets back to his impressive pitching streak after receiving his first loss of the season his last time out. Dickey easily out pitched his rubber mate Stephen Strasburg. Dickey [...]
In a game delayed almost two hours, Mike Pelfrey struggled but Jesus Feliciano helped set the table for the Mets, as they took the final game of the series against the Marlins, 6-5. Game Notes After a long rain delay, Mike Pelfrey was obviously affected adversely, getting beaten around. In four and two thirds of an inning, Mike Pelfrey gave up four runs on twelve hits with one walk and three strikeouts. The twelve hits [...]
It’s so interesting to think about the idea that a Mets team who lost 90 games last year is now in contention for a playoff spot without their All-star caliber CF. Granted, Pagan has performed much better than anybody expected him to perform and the importance of his performance cannot be measured. Although, I wish the Mets were able to win games on the road…I shouldn’t complain, at least we’re winning. On to the POTW! [...]
Hisanori Takahashi was annihilated in the third inning and the Mets, despite a ninth inning comeback, fell to the Marlins 7-6. Game Notes Hisanori Takahashi was great…for every inning not referred to as the third. Hisanori Takahashi went five and two third innings, giving up six runs including a Hanley Ramirez grand slam on nine hits with two walks and four strikeouts. Despite the third inning, Hisanori wasn’t all that bad, although he was hittable [...]
You know I took some heat recently for writing the blog regarding Wright’s supposed un-clutch ability here. Before I get into the subject of this blog, let me explain that. The problem I have with the so-called clutch players and the so-called un-clutch players is it’s usually based on memory and not fact. For example, one could argue that in the 2001 World Series Luis Gonzalez had a clutch series winning base hit against Mariano [...]
Johan Santana is not having a great year so far. Santana is 5-5 with an ERA of 3.55. It’s obvious that the great Santana is on a decline. Santana’s K/9 ratio is at a career low. Even more alarming Santana’s contact ratio is at a career high! His average velocity is also at a career low. I understand that you can’t go by wins and loses with pitchers, it’s a meaningless stat. It’s true in [...]
David Wright went 2-3 with a HR and two RBI and the Mets behind Mike Pelfrey’s pitching won the first game against the Minnesota Twins, 5-2. Game Recap Mike Pelfrey did not have his best stuff today, but still managed to pitch a quality six innings. Big Pelf gave up two runs on six hits with no walks and two strikeouts. Although Pelfrey did not walk a batter, the patient Twins hitters were fouling off [...]
It’s always puzzling to me the way some Mets “fans” treat David Wright. Part of the problem I think has to be Derek Jeter. Jeter has set the bar so high for being the “face of a NY franchise,” that no matter who puts on a Yankees or Mets jersey years from now, they will always be compared to Derek Jeter. The problem with that is overall, Jeter obviously is a great player. What makes [...]
Mets couldn’t get the sweep against the Tigers as they lose 6-5 despite a late inning rally. Mets fall back to .5 games behind the Braves. Game Summary Hisanori Takahashi started for the Mets and got roughed up by the Tigers early in his worst start of the season. Takahashi, who has had a great string of great starts, had trouble getting outs against Detroit. Some noticeable tactics that he was going for in the [...]
