Game Notes Johan Santana took the mound today and had a nice bounce back outing after giving up a personal worst ten runs in his last start.

For the second time in two weeks, rookie first baseman Ike Davis makes a spectacular catch of a foul popup. The one he made in the ninth inning of tonight’s 6-4 win over the Giants was even better than his first effort. See what you think… What an amazing night for Ike as he continues […]

Time To Get Our Batting Order In Order Again

An article by posted on May 7, 2010 0 Comments

Talk about a bummer of a road trip… The only good part of it was yesterday’s get-away day. I’m totally excited about the Mets coming home to begin weekend series against the San Francisco Giants, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some inhibitions about Mike Pelfrey and Johan Santana based on […]

An article by posted on May 4, 2010 0 Comments

This morning, Steve Popper from The Record, shed some light on the shaky status of Mets outfielder Gary Matthews Jr.. He believes it might be a while before GMJ gets another start after an 0-for-4 night on Sunday that extended his struggles to 3-for-33 since opening day, and 3-for-34 after a pinch-hit groundout on Monday. It looks […]

Is Santana Still The Ace We Traded For?

When Johan Santana was traded here I was extremely happy, he was supposed to be the best pitcher in the majors.  Santana was going to get the Mets a World Series title, the first World Series title since 1986.  Santana did not come cheap, it cost the Mets prospects that didn’t amount to much but […]

Yesterday afternoon while scanning the channels on my TV, I surprisingly stumbled upon the SNY broadcast of yesterday’s Bisons’ game against the Louisville Bats. I had no idea that SNY even broadcasted these games, but was so glad to take in a minor league game and watch prospects like Dillon Gee and Jason Pridie. It was a great game […]

When The Ace Is No Longer A Given

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets have an outstanding record in comparison to what most Met fans expected. Almost nobody expected a first place position at this juncture of the season. Almost nobody expected that they would play with such vigor, good defense, and timely hitting. I can safely say that NOBODY expected our ace, the only pitcher that […]

Sunday’s Loss Needed To Be One Of Our ’62′ Wins

An article by posted on May 3, 2010 0 Comments

No matter how good a team is they will still lose 50 games over the course of the season. On the flip side, the worst team in baseball, no matter how awful they may be, will still manage to win 50 games. It’s those other 62 games that separates pennant winners from last place. Tonight’s […]

Santana and Reyes: Now It’s Time To Be Concerned

An article by posted on May 2, 2010 0 Comments

Although I often cringe at the MMO posts that are almost an hour-by-hour barometer of the current state of the Mets (lose a few in a row, we’re terrible/win a few in a row, we’re pennant contenders), I couldn’t resist starting to write this as Johan Santana dejectedly trudged off the mound after the lambasting […]

Jeff Francoeur, who was struck on the left elbow by a pitch in the seventh inning last night, will be in the lineup this afternoon. Francoeur, who put on a personal one-man highlight reel against the Phillies, was later removed from the game, taken for x-rays and was diagnosed with a contusion on his elbow. He was expected to get […]
