For the first time in 3 years, the Mets shutout the Yankees behind the great pitching of Hisanori Takahashi and the bats of Angel Pagan & Co. Game Recap Hisanori Takahashi went out today, and replicated his stellar performance against the Yankees, going 6 innings giving up 0 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Takahashi had the Yankees confused the whole night, drawing weak contact and holding at every point he […]
R.A. Dickey came out and pitched a solid game, and the Mets took the first game in this home stand from the Marlins 4-3 Game Notes R.A. Dickey went out today, and threw the most knuckle balls in one game that he has thrown in any game this season, going 6 1/3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Dickey was just laying knuckler after knuckler out there and begging […]
Sure, we’re all thrilled that the Mets continued their Opening Day dominance on Monday with a win over the Marlins to start the 2010 season. It was a very complete performance with Johan Santana, Fernando Nieve and K-Rod holding the Marlins to one run; and our hitters, starting with David Wright belting a first-inning two-run homer against our nemesis Josh Johnson, delivering enough runs to make it a rout. Newcomers Jason Bay, Gary Matthews Jr. […]
Prior to the 2009 season, Bobby Parnell knew that he was, by no means, guaranteed to make the Opening Day roster. Nonetheless, he worked hard and pitched very well in Spring Training, which him earned a spot on the 25-man roster. His role with the team was supposed to be the seventh inning bridge to J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez, and foor the first half of the year his role on the team was just […]
Yesterday, Joe D posted a blog suggesting that picking up J.J. Putz’s option would be a waste of money. I happen to agree with his position. Putz’s option is way too much for a man who has been a shadow of himself due to various injuries. There are other less expensive options the Mets could consider if they would like someone other than Putz to pitch the eighth inning. For example, how about free agent […]
Three years ago today, Carlos Beltran got a good look at an Adam Wainwright curveball and the Cardinals went on to the 2006 World Series. (I have spared my fellow Mets fans from having to see that picture by showing you a photo of Beltran hitting a home run against the Cardinals instead.) After that devastating loss to St. Louis, the Mets thought they could use it as a springboard to bigger and better things. […]
So much for revamping the bullpen last off season… J.J. Putz – 2 thumbs down… Sean Green – 1 1/2 thumbs down (I sliced half my thumb off on a slicing machine when I worked at the deli. Not!) Frankie Rodriguez – You tell me? According to Newsday, Francisco Rodriguez became the first pitcher since Lee Smith in 1995 to allow two game-ending grand slams in the same season. That’s an epic fail anyway you […]
It was inevitable, but after some tense moments in the ninth inning that required the help of Francisco Rodriguez, the Mets finally did it. They clinched fourth place in the National League East with their 6-2 victory over the Washington Nationals. There were no mounted police present, making it easy for jubilant fans to run across the field. Of course, those jubilant fans were just kids running the bases after the game in the Mr. […]
For the second straight outing, Tim Redding gave up only one earned run. Fortunately, he didn’t have to face Pedro Martinez this time around. Redding’s mastery of the Nationals and some timely hitting by David Wright and Jeff Francoeur in the seventh inning helped the Mets snap their season-long six-game losing streak. Today’s final score was 3-2. Redding shut down the Nats so completely that the only hit they were able to muster off him […]
