The unusual absence of our star closer had me concerned during the game. They spanned the bullpen with the cameras during the 9th inning as JJ Putz was on the mound, and Frankie was no where to be found. After the win, we waited for Jerry Manuel’s press conference because we knew someone would ask him where K-Rod was and why he didn’t come out to pitch. Manuel informed us K-Rod had back spasms during batting [...]
Game Summary Mike Pelfrey gave the Mets another solid performance as the Mets topped the Phillies 7-5. The Mets broke out of their prolonged power slump at Citi Field and slugged three homeruns off starter Jaimie Moyer who once again failed to notch his 250th win. K-Rod notched his 9th save in nine opportunities and the Mets go over .500 (14-13)for the first time since week two. Mets Pitching Mike Pelfrey kept the Phillies in [...]
Game Summary In yet another spectacular performance, Johan Santana dazzled a packed house at Citi Field by combining with Pedro Feliciano and Francisco Rodriguez on a 3 hit shutout of the Phillies on Wednesday night. It was a classic pitchers duel with the lone run being scored by Carlos Delgado thanks to a throwing error by Pedro Feliz. Mets Pitching Johan Santana was absolutely brilliant and improved his record to 4-1. Fresh off of winning his [...]
The game started out as a classic pitchers duel with both Johan Santana and Yovani Gallardo missing bats and chalking up the zeros. Both the Brewers and Mets were getting baserunners in the early going, but each team’s ace was in full control on this Saturday afternoon, where there was plenty of sunshine, hot dogs, ice cream and even Alyssa Milano who looks as gorgeous as ever. The Mets kept the Brewers scoreless thanks to [...]
The Mets lost the game and the series to the Padres tonight thanks to a poor outing by John Maine and a lack of situational hitting. The game began with Ramon Castro behind the plate because Brian Schneider was given the night off after complaining of back and leg pain. Castro would later homer in the game. Jake Peavy started and did everything he could to give the Mets the win in the first inning. After a [...]
Today before the game, Jerry Manuel said that Frankie Rodriguez would get the day off after a tough workload in last nights game. J.J. Putz will be called on to close the game if necessary. I’m thinking that Putz will pick up about 10 saves this season. Luis Castillo is sitting this one out, and Alex Cora makes his first start of the season at second base. Jerry Manuel is open to trying Fernando Tatis [...]
The Mets won a thriller tonight in Cincinnati by a score of 9-7. Mike Pelfrey started and was in big trouble right from the start when the Reds tagged him for 4 runs including a three-run blast off the bat of Joey Votto. However, Pelfrey settled down some and weaved in and out of trouble and held the Reds scoreless for the next four innings. He threw 104 pitches and got the win, but just barely… [...]
