Gameday Open Thread: May 31, 2010 @ San Diego

The Mets (26-25) take on the Padres (30-20) tonight in San Deigo. Hisanori Takahashi (4-1, 4.23) looks to continue his recent success against Kevin Correia (4-4, 4.03). Takahashi has been excellent in his only starts of the season – allowing five hits in six scoreless innings against both the Yankees and Phillies. He should find […]

Quote of the Day: May 31, 2010

In an earlier post, I outlined some of the possibilities surrounding the future of Oliver Perez. Mike Puma of the NY Post reports that several Mets players want Ollie gone asap. One of the unnamed players had a great line about how the Mets might use Ollie if he stays in the bullpen: “What, we […]

What Will Become of Ollie?

With the Mets suddenly in the thick of the NL East race with a 26-25 record, they continue to look for an answer to the Oliver Perez situation. Right now, Ollie is languishing in the bullpen after refusing to go to Buffalo to work out his problems in AAA. Neither the Mets nor Team Ollie […]

Mets Game 51: Win Over Brewers

Mets 10 Brewers 4 The game was a little closer than the final score would indicate. The Brewers and Mets swapped leads early in the contest, until the Mets pulled ahead 4-2 in the sixth, then extended it to 6-2 in the seventh against Jeff Suppan, then trounced Zach Braddock for another four runs in […]

Mets Game 50: Loss to Brewers

Brewers 8 Mets 6 My wife summed it up perfectly: a long game is OK if it’s interesting. But when it’s not, it’s like you had your Saturday night stolen from you. Although there were 14 runs scored, and although the Mets were within 2 runs for the last half of the game, the contest […]

Mike, Matt: Can We Duel Already?

It seems so long ago, but this wasn’t the first time Mike Francesa criticized Matt Cerrone. Mike says “who cares what Matt Cerrone thinks“? Matt addresses the comment, then removes the post. Then Mike backtracks (a little). The bloggers unite, calling out Mike and every other old-school media dinosaur who couldn’t power on a computer […]

Mets Game 49: Loss to Brewers

Brewers 2 Mets 0 The bad news: the 1969 Mets record of 42 consecutive scoreless innings remains intact. Sorry, no good news. Johan Santana and Yovani Gallardo locked horns in a good old fashioned pitchers’ duel — a real barn-burner of a contest, matching goose eggs for 8 innings. The Mets had a couple of […]

Citi Field Earned Its Stripes (So to Speak)

Yankees fans are notorious for proclaiming if and how a player has “earned his Yankees stripes.” It’s a bit ridiculous and it can get incredibly annoying to have a conversation with someone who insists a player on the level of Mark Texeiria wasn’t REALLY a Yankee until [insert appropriate Yankeeography episode title here] happened. But… […]

Friday Mets Links: Friday Edition

The Mets are on top of the world and ahead of the Nats… Time for some links: MyMetsJournal – Joe Petruccio creates some fantastic artwork out of Gary Cohen’s fantastically forced “goose egg sweep” comment. MetsMerized – Jessup gives a State of the Union-type rundown of the Mets. Translation: it’s time to bring in Oswalt. […]

Mets 3 Phillies 0 Run for cover! Do not leave your home! At any moment, frogs and toads are certain to fall from a blue and orange-tinged sky, signifying the rapture! Cataclysm is near!
