Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss. Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat. I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger problem. I can’t believe that letting any of those guys go will help in the short or long term, except […]
Mets start their six game road trip against two division rivals with a 4-1 loss against the Braves. The Mets just seemed to give up during the game, with the exception of Santana who got better as the game went on. There was, once again, no offense to help Santana who had a decent outing despite a rough first inning. The defense just seemed like they couldn’t bother to give it their best either. Many […]
After coming back from a 7-3 deficit in the 8th inning, the Mets bullpen, specifically Pedro Feliciano gave up the winning run and the Mets lost in dramatic fashion in 13 innings, 8-7. Game Notes Johan Santana started the game today like nothing that has been seen recently from him – hittable and giving up runs. Johan gave up six runs on eight hits, including a two run home run to Matt Holliday. Johan found […]
Great pitching, timely hitting, and great defense, all added up to a much needed 6-1 win over the Dodgers last night. It snapped a streak of 13 straight games in which the Mets only scored four runs or fewer. Game Notes Johan Santana (8-5) was brilliant again. Last night he pitched seven innings and allowed one run on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts. Over his last five starts, he has been lights out […]
The Mets were able to walk away with the 4-3 victory over the Giants in the tenth inning to avoid the sweep. Santana pitched great but Frankie blew the save and Johan’s chance for his eighth win. Ike Davis shows that he is a clutch hitter with a big RBI double in the tenth inning to give the Mets their first win in the second half. Bittersweet victory, but a victory none the less. Game Summary Johan Santana couldn’t […]
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 […]
The All-Star game is behind us, and I’d like to thank Brian McCann for the game-winning hit that will give the Mets home field advantage in the World Series. You think that’s far-fetched? Well, it’s not. The Mets are just 4 games back of Atlanta and have a lot to be optimistic about. Carlos Beltran returns tomorrow in San Fran, and a lot has gone right for the Mets without him. That’s not to say […]
Johan Santana pitched seven shutout innings, and despite only scant run support, the Mets were able to tally 13 hits in a 3-0 win over the Braves. The first half ends in on a winning note for the Mets. Game Notes Johan Santana pitched like the ace that we traded for. Last outing he went nine complete shutout innings and got the win and today he followed that up with seven more shutout innings. Now making it […]
The Mets are going to be playing for first place this weekend. Not against the Phillies, but against a resurgent Braves team that is making it feel like the early part of the decade when these two teams were battling for NL East dominance. And if Jonathan Niese and the Mets can take the rubber game against the Reds tonight, it won’t matter what the Braves do in Philly–the Mets will be 1 or 2 […]
