Johan Santana did what he’s paid to do and Brian Schneider increased his home run total by 29% (hitting 2 homers to increase his season total to 9) as the Mets finished off the Nationals by a score of 7-2. The Mets finished their season series against Washington with a 12-6 record but for some […]
What a crazy game last night. Early in the season I call games like that character builders. At this point in the season they are games that should not happen. At this point of the season the Mets should be able to put away a team like the Nationals. A 7-1 lead in the 4th […]
The Mets released the tentative schedule for the 2009 season. You can view it here.

I disappear for the week and the Mets lead in the NL East disappears too. Crazy how that works. The Mets fell half a game behind the Phillies last night after losing three of their last four games. As most Mets fans, I’m having flashbacks to last year. They lost their grip at exactly the […]
Look out Mets fans! The sky is falling! After feeling pain during a simulated game yesterday Billy Wagner is officially out for the season. He will have surgery to repair a torn MCL in his left elbow that will keep him on the shelf the rest of this season and probably well into next season. […]
The Mets managed to avoid a 3 game weekend sweep at the hands of NL East rival Philadelphia this weekend by winning the third game of the series. The combination of strong starting pitching by Johan Santana and power by Carlos Delgado, who hit 2 solo homers and knocked in his 100th run of the […]
The Mets took out the brooms yesterday and swept away the Brewers to complete a thoroughly satisfying road trip. Now they come home to play a crucial weekend set with the Phillies while trying to protect a 2 game lead in the division. The bats came out early as the Mets scored 6 runs in […]
