The beards must grow on! After the players vowed not to shave until the Mets reached the .500 mark, the team continued their inconsistent play since their five-game winning streak ended on Thursday, as they were defeated by the Diamondbacks by the final score of 5-2. The loss dropped the Mets 7½ games behind the Wild Card-leading Giants and Rockies and kept them 9½ games behind the division-leading Phillies. Mike Pelfrey became the second consecutive [...]
The Big Pelf kept the Mets winning streak alive tonight as they won their fourth game in a row. Pelfrey pitched 6.1 shutout innings working himself out of bases loaded jams several times. Daniel Murphy has really stepped up for the team and scored the first run off of a Jeff Francoeur single in the second inning. In the bottom of the third, Luis Castillo singled and drove in Alex Cora for the second run of the night. The [...]
Yet again, the Mets lose to the Nationals sinking even further with no help in site. Winning their second game in a row against the Mets, Washington held New York to one run and 4 hits. Obviously it doesn’t matter who we play because our team is so bruised and battered that even the healthy guys have lost hope. The lonely core player on the team had this to say… “We’re not going to be [...]
The Mets went down to the Georgia and I guess the devil must have went down with them because that’s how gloomy things have been only two games into their second half of the season. Mike Pelfrey and the Mets handed the Braves an 11-0 win and in the process they fell to 8 1/2 games back of the first place Phillies who look like world beaters. Pelfrey was god awful tonight nd it has [...]
A thought occurred to me last night as the score reached 7-0 Dodgers—I don’t have to watch this crap if I don’t want to. Not that there’s much on TV besides baseball during the summer except horrible reality shows and re-runs, but I’d rather see anything these days besides watching our Mets get trounced and embarrassed night after night. So I reached the breaking point, and that breaking point was to reach for the remote. [...]
It’s been a brutal 4th of July weekend getting swept by the hated Phillies. The Mets now sit below .500 for the season. Clearly the team needs some help – either from the return of our injured stars or via trade – although it appears that the front office is still prudently waiting for the right opportunity and price. Baseball analysts (notably ESPN) have been saying that it is a buyers market (for trades) this [...]
The Mets salvaged the final game of the series and avoided a second consecutive sweep thanks to starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey. The game looked like a colossal mismatch on paper as another makeshift Mets lineup took on one of the best starting pitchers in the game in Jovani Gallardo. Gallardo absolutely dominated the Mets and struck out 12 batters, but in the sixth inning the Mets were able to get to him when Luis Castillo [...]
How bad did Jerry Manuel want last night’s clash with the Phillies? Bad enough to spend his closer’s remaining bullets, Frankie Rodriquez, in a tie game for two innings, no less. Who says games in June don’t have the intensity of September affairs? Unfortunately, the Mets could not counter the Phighting Phillies number one asset-guile. As per usual, the Mets jumped ahead and could not handle prosperity. Leading 4-1 (should have been 5-1 but a [...]
I know that many of you are disappointed we couldn’t pull out a win last night against the Phillies. We were so close. Despite the loss it was a heck of a game and we have been treated to some great baseball in the last two games. The Phillies and Mets rivalry has blossomed to the point where it has all the flair and high drama of the Red Sox – Yankees rivalry. Last night [...]
