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 […]
Most of you who read my words on here each week know that I have a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism when it comes to these Mets. But while I’m not about to start sending “Ya gotta believe!” messages like one of my buddies does even when the Mets lose a bunch of games in a row, it’s hard not to believe there is something magical going on here. First of all, while we […]
Everybody has a breaking point, and even though Johan Santana has not reached his, I’m thinking that a couple of more devastating losses like last night, and Johan will be singing a different tune. After the game, Santana may have revealed his frustration with the bullpen when he made this comment, “I can only do so much. I told pitching coach Dan Warthen that I felt I can go 150, 200 pitches if I […]
After the bitter taste of last nights walk-off loss against the Brewers wore off, I recalled it wasn’t that long ago that we lost in similar fashion against the Braves in Atlanta. I decided to look further and went to the best place for Mets research, Baseball Reference. It took a while to go through every boxscore, but after double checking and triple checking here is what I discovered… The Mets have already amassed six walk-off […]
Johan Santana was on his game today, but Ryota Igarashi couldn’t continue the Mets winning streak nor their scoreless inning streak in a 2-0 loss to the Brewers Game Notes Johan Santana was dominant against the Brewers, becoming the first Mets pitcher to pitch a full 8 innings in the season up to this point. Johan allowed 0 runs on 3 hits, with 2 walks and 5 strikeouts. Johan was drawing flyball after flyball, pitching […]
I can already imagine all the “Fire Jerry Manuel” posts that we’ll be seeing tomorrow morning when we log onto our computers. Why didn’t he leave Johan in… Why didn’t he let Pedro Feliciano pitch the entire inning… Why didn’t we bring in Jenrry Mejia… Personally, I didn’t have a problem with taking Johan Santana out after eight innings, so I’m not going to knock Jerry. Instead, if you’re going knock someone, how about we knock Ryota Igarashi who […]
We took two of three from the Yankees. I could care less about whether Yankees fans consider the series important or not. The point is, Santana looked sharp, the offense looked alive after Javier blanked them, and Jason Bay woke up. I really hope that it wasn’t just a one night thing for Jason, and that the Mets can at least put up a strong showing against Philadelphia this week. This week was insanely hard […]
Johan Santana went seven strong innings, but an errant David Wright throw proved to be the difference in the bottom of the 9th as the Mets lost 3-2 to the Atlanta Braves. Game Notes Johan Santana had his second straight stellar outing, going 7 innings, giving up 2 earned runs on 5 hits and 2 walks, while striking out 4. Johan looked like he was going to be in trouble for the whole night, already […]
The Mets wasted a brilliant start from Johan Santana and lost to the Marlins 2-1 on a wild pitch by Fernando Nieve in the bottom of the ninth that scored Cody Ross with the winning run. It was a classic pitchers duel that featured two of the division’s top pitchers in Josh Johnson and Santana. Game Notes Johan Santana rebounded nicely from his disastrous start last week against the Phillies when he gave up a career worst ten […]
