This is one of those posts that may incite a riot, but I’ll knock wood, and cross my fingers and toes when I say what I have to say…..that the Mets have had no serious injuries yet this season to key players. We won’t count Carlos Beltran, who had surgery back in January, or Jose Reyes, who began the year on the DL but joined the team shortly after. And we certainly won’t count underachievers [...]
Look in the dugout during a Mets game. If you see Jose Reyes smiling, laughing and dancing, you know the Mets are winning and contending. If you see him anyway else, they are probably losing. We saw it happen in 2006. Reyes led the Mets with 194 hits, batting .300. He hit 37 doubles, 19 triples and 16 home runs. Oh, and least I forget he stole 64 bases. The end result was 97 wins [...]
The Mets eight game winning streaked was snapped this afternoon as the Yankees beat up on Mike Pelfrey and handed the Mets a 5-3 loss in game two of the Subway series. Game Summary Mike Pelfrey did not continue his streak of great starts as he struggled early and often against the Yankees. He gave up five runs on seven hits and two homeruns in just the first four innings. Not the Pelfrey we are used [...]
It’s that time again – I happen to love the Subway Series, but I know there are others who don’t. Anyway we’ve reached the weekend and it’s the second act of the Subway Series for 2010. The Mets go to the Big City for the games at the new Yankee Stadium on Friday night, and Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The Mets are on a seven game winning streak, and the Yankees have just lost two [...]
As Mets fans, we’ve had our share of anguish and heartbreak over the years. In a way, we wouldn’t be Mets fans if it were not that way — long periods of frustration followed by a solitary moment of extreme jubilation and ecstasy. I think the 2010 Mets are about to break the mold that has been the essential makeup for the Mets and their fans since their humble beginnings back in ’62 and first World Series in ’69. Nobody [...]
In his 3rd straight solid outing, Jonathon Niese pitched a solid 7 innings and the offense gave him all the support he would need in the 8-4 victory Game Notes Jonathon Niese went to the mound today, and pitched a gem against the team he used to root for as a kid. Niese gave up 3 runs on 8 hits walking 2 and striking out 3 in 7 innings. Despite struggling to find his footing [...]
After his 2nd straight outing allowing 4 runs, the Mets offense picked up Johan Santana and won their 4th straight on the road from the Indians, 7-6. Game Recap Johan Santana went out today, and although not dominant, he controlled his damage to primarily the 2nd inning. Johan allowed 4 runs on 7 hits with 2 walks and only 1 strikeout in 7 innings. Although he was hittable and obviously pitching to contact, Johan’s fastball [...]
R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball were highly effective today, and Chris Carter hit his first home run in the MLB as the Mets beat the Orioles 5-1. Game Notes R.A. Dickey was as effective today as he was wild and that was what made his knuckle ball as good as it has been since his call-up. Dickey went 7 innings giving up 1 run on 7 hits with 1 walk. Dickey had the Orioles off [...]
Most of you who read my words on here each week know that I have a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism when it comes to these Mets. But while I’m not about to start sending “Ya gotta believe!” messages like one of my buddies does even when the Mets lose a bunch of games in a row, it’s hard not to believe there is something magical going on here. First of all, while we [...]
