The Post Rubs It In Williams’ Face

Although I quoted from the New York Times in yesterday’s game comments in reference to people blaming Gerald Williams for losing the no-hotter for Pedro Martinez it seems like the New York Post has decided to get in on the action. In this morning’s paper the Post features a picture of Williams saving Dwight Gooden’s […]

I Need More Cowbell Theme

If Cowbell Man ever starts a blog this would be a good theme for him to work off of.

Stand Up And Boo Palmeiro

Yesterday Rafael Palmeiro saw his first action since his 10-game steroid suspension. The fans reaction was mixed . Though many cheered there were clearly many who booed too. I remember when Keith Hernandez returned from a drug ban many years ago (or maybe it was when Dwight Gooden returned). The late Dick Young was writing […]

Fate Says No-No to Pedro

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Pedro Martinez showed yesterday why he’s one of the best pitchers in the game. After getting rocked in his last outing he pitched a gem yesterday, taking a no hitter into the eighth inning and finnishing with a complete game 2-hitter (2 ER, 1 BB, 5 […]

Beltran and Cameron Worse Than Originally Thought

Newsday is reporting that the injuries to Carlos Beltran and Mike Cameron are worse than originally diagnosed. Cameron will need surgery on the broken bones in his face and Beltran has a displaced facial fracture that will most likely not need surgery but will have some more tests done today. Cameron is probably gone for […]

Mets Sign Takatsu

The Mets signed former White Sox reliever Shingo Takatsu to a minor league deal. Unless something crazy happens I don’t expect him to be promoted to the big league club until the roster expansion in September.

Tough Day

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. As I predicted yesterday, Tom Glavine pitched well enough to win (7 IP, 9 H, 2 ER). Unfortunately fate had other plans. In the bottom of the 7th inning Carlos Beltran and Mike Cameron dived at the same ball in right center and collided with each […]

That’s More Like It

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. The Mets bea the Padres last night thanks to the arm of Kris Benson (.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 SO) and the bat of David Wright (4 for 5, 3 R, 1 HR, 6 RBI). Tom Glavine takes the hil for the […]

Pedro Gets Rocked

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Pedro Martinez suffered his worst outing of the year in last night’s 8-3 loss to the Padres. San Diego is leading the NL West but has an identical record to the Mets. They are one of the teams the Mets must play better against if they […]

A Nice Night for a Game

Click here for a recap of last night’s game. Last night I got to make a rare trip to Shea Stadium. I don’t go very often for myriad reasons. In fact I only go a few times a year. So when I go I like be treated to a good game. That’s what I got […]
