After being shutout by the Reds on Friday, the Mets returned the favor tonight and shut the Reds out 4-0 on the strength of a solid performance by Johan Santana and some clutch hitting by Jeff Francoeur!. The Mets got on the board in the first inning when our new rightfielder Jeff Francoeur singled with the bases loaded to plate Angel Pagan and Luis Castillo and put the Mets up 2-0. I had hoped before the game that […]
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 […]
If you were paying attention during the fourth inning of today’s Mets broadcast, you would have learned that the Mets catchers lead the National League with 45 runs batted in. Wow, really? Omir Santos leads the pack with 22, followed by Ramon Castro who knocked in 13 runners before being traded, and Brian Schneider is holding up the rear with 10 ribbies. Santos is seventh in the league, but when you take a closer look it gets […]

Game Recap The best thing about baseball is that after a bad game, you can always clear the slate, come back the next day and try again. The Mets did just that today, and bounced back from yesterday’s brutal loss to beat the Yankees 6-2 in the second game of the Subway Series. It was an unlikely win that was the result of what seemed like a mismatch as journeyman pitcher Fernando Nieve made his […]
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 […]
The Mets have been socked with too many injuries and a fair share of adversity so far this season. When that happens, it becomes so hard to spot some of the good things that have also emerged out of all the drama and upheaval. One such positive has been the outstanding pitching of Livan Hernandez. Who could have ever predicted how vital he would become to our rotation? Another positive has been the emergence of Bobby Parnell who […]
Game Summary Thanks to a solid performance by starting pitcher John Maine, the Mets took the rubber game of their weekend series with the Marlins and beat Florida 3-2. The Mets got some key hits in the Pitching John Maine broke out his new changeup and used it to stifle the Marlins bats today.

According Adam Rubin of the Daily News, Brian Schneider will be activated from the disabled list on Saturday. So what does that mean for Omir Santos who has suddenly become a fan favorite and has proven to be a valuable asset for the Mets since originally being called up to replace Schneider in the first place? Does he get sent back down to Triple-A Buffalo or do the Mets elect to keep three catchers which is […]
