The Mets defense keeps finding themselves in all sorts of predicaments when Santana is on the mound. Seven unearned runs as a result of 11 errors behind Johan. Usually you rely a team’s defense to bail the pitcher out of a jam. In Santana’s case, it’s the pitcher who bails his team out of their jams. That’s how good Santana is. The Mets keep putting Johan in harm’s way and he battles back every time to get himself, […]
Game Summary It was supposed to be the classic pitchers duel, Randy Johnson versus Johan Santana, but it ended up being anything but. Neither Johnson or Santana brought their “A” games, but in the end it was Santana who came out on top and the Mets who outlasted the Giants 9-6 and won their third straight game in the series. Pitching Johan Santana had a tough go of it against the Giants and was tagged […]
You can’t win ‘em all, it has been said, but last night’s defeat did sting a tad. For one, the Mets continue to squander sterling Johan Santana performances. He should hire a lawyer and sue the hitters for non-support. Why do the bats take a respite every time the fiery lefty storms the hill? The numbers don’t lie: 2.14 runs per game, worse for a starter (with 6 or more starts) this year. Can’t the […]
Jerry Manuel was asked a great question during the post game presser. “Will your team come to regret these Johan Santana losses in September?” “There will probably come a time,” Mets manager Jerry Manuel said. “There will probably come a point where you’ll think, ‘Wow, we missed a lot of opportunities with Johan.’” Ya think??? Johan Santana deserves better than this. He deserved a better effort from his teammates and a better effort from his […]
1. Why did he take out Johan Santana when he was the only pitcher best equipped to get out of that inning? I don’t care if Johan Santana had already thrown over 100 pitches. The guy is a warrior and wanted to stay in the game. Plus even if he was a little winded, 80% of Johan Santana is infinitely better than 100% of any other pitcher on the Mets active roster. Listening to Johan […]
Ask any Mets fan who the greatest pitcher in franchise history is, and without hesitation they’ll say Tom Seaver. Ask that same fan what season was Seaver’s greatest and most likely they’ll say it was 1969 when he compiled a 25-7 record while leading the Mets to their first World Series title. After being treated to another scintillating performance by Johan Santana last night, I felt like we weren’t just witnessing a pitcher on the […]
Game Summary In yet another spectacular performance, Johan Santana dazzled a packed house at Citi Field by combining with Pedro Feliciano and Francisco Rodriguez on a 3 hit shutout of the Phillies on Wednesday night. It was a classic pitchers duel with the lone run being scored by Carlos Delgado thanks to a throwing error by Pedro Feliz. Mets Pitching Johan Santana was absolutely brilliant and improved his record to 4-1. Fresh off of winning his […]
According to a press release by the New York Mets, left-hander Johan Santana has been elected National League Pitcher of the Month for April after going 3-1 with an ERA of 1.10 in the season’s opening month. Santana was the portrait of consistency in five starts, never allowing more than two runs and always striking out at least seven. He finished the month with 44 whiffs in 32 2/3 innings, with a pair of double-digit […]
(Author’s note: This is just one man’s unbiased, impartial view of Citi Field. In no way am I implying that I am speaking for all Mets fans. Just my thoughts) After surviving a brutally cold winter in the northeast, last Sunday was one of those beautiful spring days that made it all worth it. Upon waking up, I decided that rather than doing the original productive things I had planned, namely sitting around and watching […]
