Jonathon Niese went out and was strong for seven and two third innings, but the Mets offense was stifled by Reds starter Bronson Arroyo in the 3-1 loss. Game Notes Jonathon Niese continued his run of brilliant starts, going seven and two third innings, giving up three runs on six hits with one walk and tied a season high with eight strikeouts. Two of the runs and the hits Jonathon allowed today were solo homers […]
Johan Santana pitched a complete game shutout, and hit his first MLB home run, and the return of Reyes attributed to the 3-0 win against the Reds. Game Notes Johan Santana had something that Mets fans have not seen in a while – life to his fastball, routinely clocking in at 91 MPH and occasionally hitting 92 MPH. Johan parlayed that increase in velocity that may be a sign his arm is finally approaching 100%, […]
After trailing the Phillies’ Placido Polanco for most of the All Star balloting period, David Wright has been voted to the 2010 All Star Game as the National League starting third baseman. The NL’s RBI leader will be heading to his fifth straight All Star Game, his fourth as starter. Wright is currently batting .314 with 14 home runs and 64 RBI. “That’s what it’s all about. There’s no greater feeling of a kid wearing your jersey, seeing […]
Last night, the Mets lost 2-1 after a ninth inning sacrifice fly by Ryan Zimmerman. It was the ninth time this season that the Mets have suffered a walkoff loss on the road. A hefty number considering they have just 23 losses on the road overall. On Tuesday, Jerry Manuel had no problem bringing Frankie Rodriguez, his best option, in the eighth inning of the game. However, he opted against bringing in Rodriguez in the […]
In a game delayed almost two hours, Mike Pelfrey struggled but Jesus Feliciano helped set the table for the Mets, as they took the final game of the series against the Marlins, 6-5. Game Notes After a long rain delay, Mike Pelfrey was obviously affected adversely, getting beaten around. In four and two thirds of an inning, Mike Pelfrey gave up four runs on twelve hits with one walk and three strikeouts. The twelve hits […]
With all the uproar associated with those who even DARE mention Angel Pagan‘s name in a potential Cliff Lee trade, I thought it would be appropriate to explore a certain scenario. What if, just what if, Angel Pagan was putting up his 2010 numbers…… in another uniform. In other words, what if Pagan were on the Braves, hitting .302 with 4 HR, 35 RBI, 41 R, 14 SB and exceeding everyone’s expectations in nearly every way. […]
Johan Santana is not having a great year so far. Santana is 5-5 with an ERA of 3.55. It’s obvious that the great Santana is on a decline. Santana’s K/9 ratio is at a career low. Even more alarming Santana’s contact ratio is at a career high! His average velocity is also at a career low. I understand that you can’t go by wins and loses with pitchers, it’s a meaningless stat. It’s true in […]
David Wright went 2-3 with a HR and two RBI and the Mets behind Mike Pelfrey’s pitching won the first game against the Minnesota Twins, 5-2. Game Recap Mike Pelfrey did not have his best stuff today, but still managed to pitch a quality six innings. Big Pelf gave up two runs on six hits with no walks and two strikeouts. Although Pelfrey did not walk a batter, the patient Twins hitters were fouling off […]
It may have taken Jerry Manuel ions to figure it out, but since his decision to bat Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan first and second at the top of the order, this team has been exciting to watch. Jose Reyes has lit it up and now their is no doubt that he is 100% recovered from his leg injuries and on the fast track to becoming one of the most dynamic leadoff hitters in the game […]
