During Sunday’s game on ESPN I was trying to drown out Joe Morgan and crew but one thing did get my attention was their talk of leadership. It’s something that we on this site have talked about for years now. In my mind and other Met fans the leader of this franchise is David Wright. He might not wear a “C” on his jersey but he is the captain of this ship and he needs […]
I took a look at David Wrights numbers this season and see how his splits looked since he was dropped from third in the batting order to fifth. These numbers do not reflect last nights game. Lets just ignore the one game where he batted cleanup and just compare his stats in the number three and five spots. The biggest gains were made in RBI’s, batting average and slugging which was 160 points higher. His […]
If there was any doubt who the true catalyst of the Mets engine is, David Wright has answered the debate with a resounding ME, the last three games against the Giants. Besides collecting three hits in each of the last three games, and hitting a robust .692, he now has pulled even with Carlos Beltran for the team lead in RBI’s, with 27. The Mets offense has come alive against the Giants, a team that […]
Game Summary It was supposed to be the classic pitchers duel, Randy Johnson versus Johan Santana, but it ended up being anything but. Neither Johnson or Santana brought their “A” games, but in the end it was Santana who came out on top and the Mets who outlasted the Giants 9-6 and won their third straight game in the series. Pitching Johan Santana had a tough go of it against the Giants and was tagged […]
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 […]
The Mets had another unlikely win last night that saw them come from behind and take the lead with three runs in the ninth inning and then hang on for the 7-4 win. The go-ahead run scored after Carlos Beltran doubled and then stole third base in the ninth. David Wright then drove home Beltran with a single that dropped into shallow right field. Ramon Castro drove in Wright and Gary Sheffield later into add to the […]
Man, that David Wright stinks! Even so, he did go three for three, and gave us key ribbies tonight, including driving in the game winner! Metsies beat the Giants 7-4. Doesn’t it feel great when we beat our parents–GIants and Dodgers! As Mets fans know, we don’t play these teams especailly well when we go out to Californy, so it’s great to get this one under our belts. The Giants don’t hit well, but their […]
The Mets have just stolen their sixth and seventh bases of the game tonight, thanks to a double steal with Sheffield swiping third and Wright taking second. The seven stolen bases set a new Mets club record. For David Wright it was his fourth steal of the night and a new career best. Carlos Beltran also swiped third base (again!) and came around to score the run that put the Mets on top in the ninth […]
Last night was a coming out party for the Mets, in what was probably their most significant loss umm win of the season. The old Mets, you know the ones without any grit, would have lost the game last night and today we’d all be screaming and hollering about all the missed opportunities, runners left on base, and shoddy defense. And I’d be the one screaming the loudest. But last night, that was a different team […]
