Mets Score Behind Sub Par Niese

I don’t normally post during games but the Mets have scored 6 runs in 4 innings behind Jonathon Niese including a grand slam home run by Fernando Tatis. This show of run support prompted Johan Santana to say angrily “We’ve scored 6 runs for who?”

Beltran Walks, Mets Win

One of my Twitter friends offered me 2 free tickets to last night’s game at CitiField. It was very nice of her but I had to turn them down due to a commitment. But after watching the game I wish I was able to be there. After falling behind 3-0 the Mets scored 2 in […]

Santana Amazes, Delgado Races

What an interesting game last night. Johan Santana was his regular, spectacular self allowing only two hits and striking out 10 with three walks over 7 innings. Santana lowered his ERA to 0.91. Opponents are batting .048 against him with runners in scoring position. But the Mets bats could not wake up, scoring only one […]

Putz Not Impressive

I’m not very impressed by J.J. Putz. One week ago he blew a tie game in the 8th inning (against the Cardinals). Then yesterday he blew a one run lead in the 8th inning. This is the kind of game he was brought in to hold. Overall he’s 1-2 with a 4.09 ERA in 11 […]

Corrected Lineup From Last Night’s Game and Other Notes

Those of you who saw last night’s game or have seen the box score know that the lineup I posted yesterday afternoon turned out to be incorrect. Carlos Delgado was taken out of the lineup due to a hip problem and this caused some reshuffling. Most notable was that Fernando Tatis was moved from second […]

Putz Breaks Our Hearts For The First Time

Last night was the first opportunity I had to watch a game from start to finish. And an interesting game it was. Oliver Perez sucked. Even before the 5th inning explosion that knocked him out of the game Perez did not have very good stuff. I don’t care how many times Gary Cohen says he […]

Citi Opener Ends Badly

The Mets had a great comeback last night capped with a David Wright home run, his first of the season and the first regular season home run for a Met at CitiField. The problem is that the comeback came in the 5th inning and only tied the game. The Mets would not score another run […]

Mets Win Opener

Opening day was a success for the Mets. The story people are making the biggest deal about is the bullpen. Sean Green, J.J. Putz and Francisco Rodriguez did a great job after starter Johan Santana left the game with 2 outs in the 6th inning. The thing to remember is that this is one game […]

It’s A 9 Inning Game

The Mets thought they had the game won when Carlos Delgado hit a grand slam in the third inning. Apparently they hadn’t gotten the memo that the game is 9 innings long. Oliver Perez allowed 4 runs in the 5th inning to allow the Cubs back into the game that was eventually lost 9-6 in […]

Santana + 8 + 10 + 125 = Win

This was the equation the Mets had in mind when they acquired Johan Santana in the offseason. On the brink of the playoffs where every game is a must win the team needed a starter to give them strong innings. Santana provided 8 strong innings (striking out 10) last night while throwing a career high […]
