Look in the dugout during a Mets game. If you see Jose Reyes smiling, laughing and dancing, you know the Mets are winning and contending. If you see him anyway else, they are probably losing. We saw it happen in 2006. Reyes led the Mets with 194 hits, batting .300. He hit 37 doubles, 19 triples and 16 home runs. Oh, and least I forget he stole 64 bases. The end result was 97 wins [...]
The Mets eight game winning streaked was snapped this afternoon as the Yankees beat up on Mike Pelfrey and handed the Mets a 5-3 loss in game two of the Subway series. Game Summary Mike Pelfrey did not continue his streak of great starts as he struggled early and often against the Yankees. He gave up five runs on seven hits and two homeruns in just the first four innings. Not the Pelfrey we are used [...]
For the first time in 3 years, the Mets shutout the Yankees behind the great pitching of Hisanori Takahashi and the bats of Angel Pagan & Co. Game Recap Hisanori Takahashi went out today, and replicated his stellar performance against the Yankees, going 6 innings giving up 0 runs on 4 hits with 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Takahashi had the Yankees confused the whole night, drawing weak contact and holding at every point he [...]
The Mets continued their torrid hot streak with their seventh straight win after beating the Indians 6-4 to sweep the three game set. It was the second consecutive road sweep for the Mets who keep finding new ways to win. Game Summary R.A. Dickey improves to 5-0 after another solid start. Tonight he knuckled down and toughed out six innings and allowed just two earned runs on seven hits and two walks despite not being as sharp as [...]
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 [...]
The Mets looked extremely sharp last week, posting a 5-1 record over their last 7 days. The off-day seemed to have no ill effect on the team and hopefully that trend will carry over into Cleveland as the Mets travel there to take on the Indians this week. It is a great day to be a Mets fan, with the Mets looking sharper than ever lately, and you have to give most of the credit [...]

Dickey was just laying knuckler after knuckler out there and begging [...]
I don’t get it. Jerry Manuel may be a bad manager, Oliver Perez may be an idiot, and Johan Santana may be really good, but nobody can explain to me why the Mets bite on the road and are dominant at home. The Mets had a wonderful shutout streak going that went to 35 IP, before Igarashi gave it up in what else, but an away game. If anybody can figure out why the Mets [...]
