Johan Santana has done the impossible, the unthinkable, the only imaginative. He has reset the count back to zero. 8,019 games without a no-hitter but tonight is a night to remember. Save this date, June 1st, 2012 on your calenders as Johan Santana has pitched the very first no-hitter in Mets franchise history. In their 51st season, Santana has done something the likes of Seaver, Koosman, Gooden and hundreds before him couldn’t do. There was [...]
The Mets three-game winning streak came to an end as the Phillies came to Citi Field and beat them 8-4 on a beautiful Memorial Day. Jon Niese, the $25MM man, cannot make it past the sixth inning. He gets pulled after five innings, plus two batters in the sixth. Four runs on two hits, a homerun, five walks, and striking out seven on 115 pitches. Those are Oliver Perez numbers he’s throwing out there. A [...]
Yesterday, the Mets made the Padres look like they were a powerhouse contending team after an embarrassing 11-5 loss. Luckily the real Padres showed up tonight and the Mets had their bats swinging, Gee dominating, and Citi Field was rocking. Dillon Gee now has back-to-back good starts since losing his goatee. He was dominant on the mound mixing up his pitches, getting the called third strike on multiple pitches. He has been using more of [...]
Recap He came up to the mound, everyone doubting him and he shocked the world. Miguel Batista was on fire tonight! He dominated the Brewers tonight and lasted longer than most of our starters do. Going seven strong innings, only allowing four hits, one walk, striking out five and at one point set down 12 of 13 batters he faced. He impressed me and impressed everyone. He’ll earn himself one more start. He walks away [...]
Recap The roof opened up on the new Marlins Stadium just in time for our lovable Mets to see it’s lights, fish tanks, and once again those ugly Marlins jerseys. On this historical night – the Mets’ eight-thousandth regular season game – the Amazins were still looking to get that glaring no no-hitter monkey off their back. Johan Santana continues to be the Santana of old. The Mets ace was dominant going six innings and [...]
Recap Jon Niese had himself another good start despite only going five innings and being plagued with four walks. He gave up two runs in the first two innings, but was able to throw zeroes until he was taken out for a pinch hitter. Niese needs to stay in the game. He goes five innings, allowing two runs on four hits, four walks and five strikeouts. He walks away with a no decision. Manny Acosta [...]
Recap On a night with the undisputed oddest game of the season, including a cycle, an eleven run, four error inning, a runner hit by a ball running to second, a catcher’s interference on a pitch out, a grand slam, and a major league debut, there are a lot to talk about. So let’s start with Pelfrey’s replacement, Chris Schwinden. A rude welcoming to the majors by Colorado. He was tagged for a run in [...]
Recap Another starter slammed by the Giants. Dillon Gee gave up seven runs and a career-high 12 hits in 6 2-3 innings. He gets his second loss of the season and has an ERA of 5.21 now. Yikes. Acosta and Parnell combined for 2.1 one hit innings. At least our bullpen was solid. Duda had an 0-fer in the first game and got two hits this time. Turner and Murphy get the only Mets RBI. [...]
Recap The Mets thought they could get away with using Miguel Batista as a spot starter today against the Giants and Lincecum. They thought wrong. All us fans saw this coming, though. He only lasted 3.2 innings and was blasted for six runs, three earned, seven hits, two being homeruns, walking three and striking out two. I somewhat understand moving Santana back to Tuesday, but Batista starting? I still don’t get what the Mets see [...]
Recap Mets are just spoiling us with all this offense including the homeruns. Ike Davis with a three-run homerun to break the game open, and after Jason Bay robbed the Braves of a homerun, hit one himself deep in center field for a solo shot and an insurance run. Broken fingers seem to be helping the Mets. Dillon Gee had a great start this afternoon allowing only one run on four hits in seven innings [...]
Recap R.A. Dickey continues to roll with the punches as he got tagged for nine hits but only allowed one batter to touch home. The knuckleballer mixed in his fastball nicely today and his knuckler was on que today with only one mistake of homerun against Chase Utley’s no name replacement. He pitched for seven innings, allowing just one run on nine hits and one walk. Dickey continues to throw strikes reaching seven K’s in [...]
