Just one month ago at this time Jason Bay seemed to an after thought as a serious threat in the New York Mets lineup. It seemed like Bay couldn’t do anything right and everything that could wrong for Bay at the plate did go wrong. However, since Bay was benched in mid-June he’s responded and in a big way, at a time where the Mets have needed it most. Since June 15th, Bay is batting [...]
Mike Pelfrey willed his way through six innings while Carlos Beltran and Jason Bay supplied all the power as the Mets beat the Dodgers 6-0, ensuring at least a series split as the Mets win their third straight game. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey worked himself in and out of trouble today, going six innings while giving up five hits, walking two, hitting two batters and striking out two. Pelfrey was consistently hit, and it wasn’t cheap contact [...]
R.A. Dickey pitched a good outing, but left in the fifth inning with a glute injury and the Mets offense rallied late against the Yankees to prevent the series sweep, 3-2. Game Notes R.A. Dickey pitched a quality five innings, but was removed for a pinch hitter in the top of the sixth after he walked off the field gingerly after pulling his left glute muscle. R.A’s final line is five innings, one run allowed [...]
Mike Pelfrey had a poor outing today and the Mets managed hits, but couldn’t turn them into runs and they lost the series finale against the Tigers, 5-2. Game Notes Mike Pelfrey had a horrible outing today, allowing four runs on eight hits in four and two-third innings, striking out three but walking five. Pelfrey had poor control and paid for it in the third inning, which was essentially the inning he unraveled. An error [...]
Jason Bay & Carlos Beltran had grand slams in consecutive innings, and R.A. Dickey had another quality outing in the 14-3 blowout of the Detroit Tigers Game Notes R.A. Dickey came out today and seems had the luck on his side and was blessed with run support. Outside of that, R.A. went seven innings, allowing three runs on ten hits, including two home runs while walking three and striking out six. Dickey had some good [...]
Mike Pelfrey was hit hard early, but stabilized and Manny Acosta made sure the game was out of reach in the Mets 8-1 loss to the Rangers Game Notes Mike Pelfrey went six innings, allowing four runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out three. Big Pelf gave up three of those runs in the first inning, and after that seemed to get his bearings and keep the Rangers to one run over the [...]
Dillon Gee had his worst major league outing, and the bullpen didn’t fare much better as the Mets lost to the Oakland Athletics, 7-2 Game Notes Dillon Gee had a horrible outing, and it isn’t shown by the basic stats. Dillon Gee allowed four runs on three hits, striking out one but walking SIX. Gee walked in a run, and just got burned by an inability to put batters away. With the bases loaded in [...]
Chris Capuano and the bullpen combined for a shutout and the offense exploded in the late innings for a 7-0 win against the Pirates Game Notes Chris Capuano pitched a strong seven innings today, giving up three hits, allowing six total baserunners (two via walk, one via HBP) and five strikeouts. Capuano kept inducing weak contact and surprisingly, ground balls which allowed him to get out of trouble. The only thing that worries me about [...]
Minus the large contract, what reason does Jason Bay have to be in the lineup for Saturday’s game against the Pirates. From a platoon standpoint, Bay should be on the bench for Lucas Duda who mashes righties and has been crushing in Triple A. From a production standpoint, Bay hasn’t manufactured much in terms of extra base hits, or solid contact for that matter. So why? Terry Collins said he was going to give Jason [...]
Jason Bay is being paid $66 million by the New York Mets to suck. Judging by the boos at Citi Field, he is earning every penny of it. But what are they booing exactly? Is it the lack of home runs by Bay after smashing 36 longballs for Boston in 2009? Is it the failure to drive in runs after recording four 100 RBI seasons in the five seasons prior to becoming a Met? Or [...]
