For many years, environmentalists have been looking for energy sources that do not consume fuel or contribute to the excessive amounts of pollution in the air. One of the energy sources that satisfy those criteria is wind. And one of the best wind generators in recent times is right here in New York, wearing #44 for the Mets. That’s right, Mets fans. Jason Bay’s daily strikeouts might be bad for the Mets, but they’re quite [...]
I can’t believe that this is our 5th Annual MMO First Half Awards. This year 17 MMO Bloggers weighed in, an all time high for us. After a few long hours, all the results have finally been tabulated and here they are presented for your enjoyment. Best Mets Win The 20 Inning Marathon (7 Votes) – Jose Reyes hits a tie-breaking sacrifice fly to help the Mets beat the Cardinals 2-1 in 20 innings on April 17th. It featured some great Mets clutch pitching that [...]
Johan Santana pitched a complete game shutout, and hit his first MLB home run, and the return of Reyes attributed to the 3-0 win against the Reds. Game Notes Johan Santana had something that Mets fans have not seen in a while – life to his fastball, routinely clocking in at 91 MPH and occasionally hitting 92 MPH. Johan parlayed that increase in velocity that may be a sign his arm is finally approaching 100%, [...]
This is one of those posts that may incite a riot, but I’ll knock wood, and cross my fingers and toes when I say what I have to say…..that the Mets have had no serious injuries yet this season to key players. We won’t count Carlos Beltran, who had surgery back in January, or Jose Reyes, who began the year on the DL but joined the team shortly after. And we certainly won’t count underachievers [...]
Look in the dugout during a Mets game. If you see Jose Reyes smiling, laughing and dancing, you know the Mets are winning and contending. If you see him anyway else, they are probably losing. We saw it happen in 2006. Reyes led the Mets with 194 hits, batting .300. He hit 37 doubles, 19 triples and 16 home runs. Oh, and least I forget he stole 64 bases. The end result was 97 wins [...]
Nobody was more excited about signing Jason Bay than I was. I strongly defended him against some of the harsh criticism that was levied against his $66 million dollar deal with the Mets. I couldn’t wait for the season to get underway so that his powerful bat and excellent track record would silence his critics for once and for all. I’m still waiting. Jason Bay came out of last night’s game with what is being [...]
In his 3rd straight solid outing, Jonathon Niese pitched a solid 7 innings and the offense gave him all the support he would need in the 8-4 victory Game Notes Jonathon Niese went to the mound today, and pitched a gem against the team he used to root for as a kid. Niese gave up 3 runs on 8 hits walking 2 and striking out 3 in 7 innings. Despite struggling to find his footing [...]
After his 2nd straight outing allowing 4 runs, the Mets offense picked up Johan Santana and won their 4th straight on the road from the Indians, 7-6. Game Recap Johan Santana went out today, and although not dominant, he controlled his damage to primarily the 2nd inning. Johan allowed 4 runs on 7 hits with 2 walks and only 1 strikeout in 7 innings. Although he was hittable and obviously pitching to contact, Johan’s fastball [...]
R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball were highly effective today, and Chris Carter hit his first home run in the MLB as the Mets beat the Orioles 5-1. Game Notes R.A. Dickey was as effective today as he was wild and that was what made his knuckle ball as good as it has been since his call-up. Dickey went 7 innings giving up 1 run on 7 hits with 1 walk. Dickey had the Orioles off [...]
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 [...]
