This one will be very short and not so sweet… The Mets fell to the Phillies Friday night in what once considered to be the biggest series of the season for the Mets back in June. Four games in three days against their number one nemesis in mid September. But alas, the only significance this series and all the other remaining series hold now, is to see if anybody emerges victoriously from early open tryouts […]
Tim Redding’s late season renaissance continued, as he enjoyed his third consecutive solid outing. However, his enjoyment of the game was short-lived, as party pooper Brian Stokes gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning for the second time in five games, including a bases loaded two-run pinch-hit single to former Yankee Jason Giambi. The latest Rockie Rally gave Colorado a 5-2 victory over the Mets Wednesday night in Denver. Before the […]
While we all know how the Mets have suffered what has basically amounted to season-ending injuries for several players, among them arguably our two top sluggers in Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado, I don’t think any of us expected this power outage to be legendary. Because that’s what this is bordering on. The Mets have 76 home runs through 132 games, putting them on pace for 93, their lowest total since 1992 when Bobby Bonilla […]
The Mets put on an Amazin’ exhibition of power and offense for the two fans who showed up this afternoon at Land Shark Stadium to see the Mets beat the Marlins 10-3. Tim Redding started and allowed three homeruns, and yet somehow these Miracle Mets were able to pull off the upset victory and avoid a sweep in Miami. Redding was fortunate that all three bombs were of the solo variety. He ended up pitching […]
On a night when Johan Santana was supposed to take the mound, Nelson Figueroa stepped into his shoes. The rest of the team paid tribute to Johan by doing what they do best in his starts; not scoring. They played a close game, but ultimately fell a run short, dropping the opener of the nine-game road trip by the final score of 2-1. The game was scoreless until the Mets came to bat in the […]
So far this season, the Mets have lost a number of games in bizarre and improbable ways. From failing to touch third base at Dodger Stadium to dropping a potential game-ending pop-up at the new Yankee Stadium, Mets fans everywhere have been forced to revise their “I’ve never seen that before” lists. After Sunday’s stunning game-ending unassisted triple play, I’ve been thinking about new ways the Mets can lose ballgames. There is one thing worse […]
The Mets played a Monday matinee at Citi Field today and Bobby Parnell pitched well…to every hitter not named Ryan Howard. Howard hit two home runs off Parnell to score the first five runs of the game for the Phillies. That was all the offense they needed as they were able to defeat the Mets by the final score of 6-2. The loss was the third straight for the Mets to the Phillies after winning […]
Jeff Francoeur is getting an MRI on his left thumb this morning, after injuring it while making a diving catch the half-inning before he hit into the unassisted triple play Sunday. The thumb swelled Sunday night. Francoeur will be out of the lineup for Monday’s game and let’s hope that’s all he will miss. Francoeur is hitting .305 with 6 homeruns and 24 RBIs with the Mets, leading all active players. He will be […]
Blogger’s disclaimer: This recap will be full of sarcasm. I attended today’s game expecting to see a spirited effort by the Mets against their former teammate, Pedro Martinez. Instead I saw things on the field I never thought I’d see in person, things that pretty much sum up the 2009 season. Buckle up. The show’s about to start. On a day that was supposed to be remembered for Pedro Martinez’s return to Flushing as a […]
