As far as the Mets are concerned April is now over and they find themselves in 4th place with a 9-12 record, closer to last place than first. Not exactly the beginning we all envisioned after overhauling our bullpen and adding a few role players to our bench. In 2008 the Mets found themselves at 14-12, 15-9 in 2007, and they finished the month with a 16-8 record in 2006. Notice any trends? The last time the […]
Game Summary The Mets (9-12) lost to the Florida Marlins (13-8) 4-3 who won the series and and got back to their winning ways. The Mets squandered another solid start, this time by Johan Santana who didn’t figure into the decision. The bullpen had another classic meltdown, this time by J.J. Putz who along with Sean Green have blown back to back saves. Mets Pitching Johan Santana deserved a win today, but instead he got another no-decision as the Mets bats and the […]
I was thinking last night as the Mets had a comfortable three-run lead, that maybe, just maybe they have turned a corner and that I can write something positive today. But in the back of my mind I was thinking that a 3-run lead with a (let’s face it) still-shaky bullpen was not going to hold up against the Marlins.
Amazing. There is no better word to describe Johan Santana. Talk about a stopper – he’s the only guy in the Mets rotation who can win! (And have a different handshake for every teammate!) Now I have been following baseball since 1990, and I’ll admit I have never been a fan of pitching. Never gave it any thought; it was just part of the game. No favorite player of mine has ever been a pitcher. I […]
Random thoughts on the Mets, baseball and global warming… Johan Santana proves that you don’t quibble about prospects when you are getting a proven Major League talent in return. The Twins will be lamenting this trade for years while Mets fans get treated to a pitching gem every time Santana takes the mound. One of those prospects we gave up was Phil Humber who was released on Friday. Santana has been the best pitcher in […]
The game started out as a classic pitchers duel with both Johan Santana and Yovani Gallardo missing bats and chalking up the zeros. Both the Brewers and Mets were getting baserunners in the early going, but each team’s ace was in full control on this Saturday afternoon, where there was plenty of sunshine, hot dogs, ice cream and even Alyssa Milano who looks as gorgeous as ever. The Mets kept the Brewers scoreless thanks to […]
Who saw this one? I didn’t. I live in Chicago. Lucky me, I get the blackout on Saturday afternoons. I spent a chunk of the afternoon hitting refresh. Obviously, the line on Johan speaks for itself. Simply Amazing. Seaver, Gooden, and and Santana. Unequivocally, the greatest three Mets pitchers of all time. What that man puts up with…Mets have a ways to go before we’re worthy of him. Still, we must have won this game […]
If you needed any additional evidence of why Johan Santana is the best pitcher in the game on a day in, day out basis, here it is. Johan Santana’s ranks during 2004-09 Victories 87 First ERA 2.75 First Winning percentage .690 First Strikeouts 1,209 First Opposing batting average .213 First Presence, Swagger, Class, Attitude – First! Santana was initially tied in wins with Roy Oswalt at 86, but passed him on Opening Day. Already first going […]
The first week of the season has been one of mixed emotions. It has provided us with both sources for optimism as well as reason for concern. Our hitting is off to a good start. Delgado has continued his offensive onslaught from last year, Beltran and Wright are definitely doing their part, Daniel Murphy is hitting just under 300 and Reyes, although a bit sluggish thus far, will soon kick it into high gear. Last […]
