When Jason Bay signed his four-year, $66 million contract to play left field for the Mets, it was believed that he would provide the booming bat needed by the Mets that was sorely missed last season. After all, Daniel Murphy led the team with a measly 12 home runs, while Bay hit three times that amount with the Boston Red Sox. The Mets have now played one full month of baseball. After their first 28 [...]
After 68 at-bats and 20 games without a homerun to start his Mets’ career, Jason Bay hit his first homer of the year yesterday, blasting a solo shot in the Mets’ 4-0, Game 1 win over the Dodgers at Citi Field. Since Jose Reyes has been inserted in the three spot, Jason Bay is swatting the ball just as Jerry Manuel predicted. Here is Bay as he crushes one over the left-center-field wall. Enjoy the video [...]
The pitching this young season has been great. I don’t think that anyone can honestly say they thought the pitchers, be it the rotation or the bullpen would perform the way they have so far. Every expert said that the Mets couldn’t contend in 2010 because of the starting pitching after Johan but the starters, especially Mike Pelfrey have proven those experts wrong. The pitchers have stepped up this season, now it’s time for the [...]
Mets took game two of the series against the Braves winning 3-1 and reach .500 on the season. Game Notes Jonathon Niese pitched another great 5 1/3 innings of baseball. He fell into some deep bases loaded trouble in the first inning but was able to fight his way out of it. Niese allowed five hits, walked a season high five batters while striking out six, and only allowed one run for another great outing [...]
We all know about the on again, off again musings of Jerry Manuel with regards to batting Jose Reyes third in the lineup, a move that Reyes is strongly opposed to. In fact, Manuel had planned on unveiling Reyes in the third spot during the Cardinals series last weekend, but backed off after Reyes began chirping to the media. Well according to a report by Adam Rubin, Reyes batting third is back on again and it [...]
Who would have thought, a disappointing start to the 2010 season would have Mets fans ranting about anything but starting pitching. Mike Pelfrey has been lights out thus far posting a 0.86 era in 21 IP. Johan Santana seems to have achieved 2006 euphoria; and aside from some inopportune home runs, the bullpen and Japanese born product of the Nippon Professional Baseball League, Ryota Igarashi has really shown strong stuff in his set-up role for [...]
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. [...]
Put it in the books. It was a thing of beauty in game 1, from the weather to the pitching to the timely hitting. Who can complain about the best opening day franchise in baseball? No Met fan in Met Nation could have hoped for a better opener. (Unless we are talking about a no hitter from Johan) Something caught my eye more than David Wright’s opposite field HR, more than Johan’s performance. More than [...]
I know this is a positive post and it’s only been one game but that was a big and important win for the Mets and the fans. After the disaster of last year the Mets needed this first win behind their ace and they got that win! Jason Bay had a good 1st day, going 2-4 with a triple and scored a run, Barajas went 2-4 hitting a double, driving in a run and scored [...]
