An article by posted on April 27, 2010 0 Comments

Yes, you did read the title correctly. Over the past week and a half, Mets pitchers have indeed been good for nothing, meaning they’ve been good enough to hold the opposition to practically nothing on the scoreboard. Pitching was not supposed to be the strong point of the 2010 Mets. After all, the Mets’ starting […]

What an interesting week in Mets baseball. Not only did we see a 20 inning marathon game, we saw our closer get the win and a starter get the save. In addition to that, we saw the Mets call up Ike Davis from AAA and demote Mike Jacobs. Some people have been giving up on […]

Last night’s epic 20 inning marathon between the Cardinals and the Mets had more ups and downs than a ride on the Cyclone in Coney Island. When the game finally came to an end and I saw Luis Castillo field the grounder off the bat of Ryan Ludwick and fire it to Mike Jacobs at first […]

The Mets won game two against the Cardinals 2-1 in 20 innings. It was the longest victory in franchise history. Game Notes Who would have expected Jamie Garcia, a no name pitcher, to go toe-to-toe with a two time Cy Young award winner like Johan Santana? But that’s how it was with both pitchers throwing […]

It’s hard to believe the euphoria of Opening Day took place but a week ago.  Since the Mets won Game One they have lost 4 out of 5, and two consecutive home series against Florida and Washington.  Not the Sterling start this team wanted-or more importantly, needed.

I always tell my friends who are Yankee’s fans, it’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Everything is handed to you. To be a Met fan it takes a certain rare, albeit hopeful, yet borderline delusional personality. The Yankee’s are like the older brother that grew up a Hilton to the Mets kid who grew […]

I know it’s only one week into this season. We still have 25 more to go. I am in no way giving up on the 2010 Mets. That being said I am feeling pretty pessimistic right now. Am I the only one? As we Mets fans always do, we hope for the best but somewhat […]
