Pirates 5 Mets 1 For seven innings, R.A. Dickey’s dancing dipsy-doodle devoured the Pittsburgh Pirates batters. If this were a high school game, Dickey would’ve finished with a shutout victory. Unfortunately, they play nine-inning contests in the Major Leagues.
Here is tonight’s Mets lineup against Pirates righthander James McDonald: Angel Pagan – CF Justin Turner – 2B Carlos Beltran – RF Jason Bay – LF Daniel Murphy – 3B Nick Evans – 1B Josh Thole – C Ruben Tejada – SS R.A. Dickey – P Happy to see hot-hitting Angel Pagan in the leadoff [...]
On Twitter, my friend JamesK from AmazinAvenue tweeted: I’d like to hear @metstoday’s opinion on the Buster Posey situation and any rule changes going forward. Since I’m a huge fan of Buster Posey, but the subject doesn’t really fit into a Mets blog, I posted my opinion over at my other blog, OnBaseball.com. It’s the [...]
You may have been wondering why it’s taken me so long to respond to the quotes by Fred Wilpon in the recent New Yorker and SI articles. There were a few reasons.

From the Mets PR department: NOTE: Jose Reyes found out this afternoon that his grandmother passed away. He is being placed on the Bereavement List (minimum 3 days – [...]
Mets 9 Phillies 5 The Mets pounded Phillies pitching for 17 hits and 9 runs to avert a sweep and move two games away from the NL East cellar.
Phillies 5 Mets 2 Believe me, it was much closer than the final score would suggest.
Phillies 6 Mets 4 For a while there, it seemed like the Mets might be able to steal one from the Phillies. But it was not to be.
Cubs 9 Mets 3 Like an overgrown 12-year-old on a little league team, Carlos Zambrano beat the Mets with his arm and his bat to take the rubber match in windy, wet, and chilly Chicago.
Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Cubs righthander Carlos Zambrano: Jose Reyes – SS Josh Thole – C Carlos Beltran – RF Jason Bay – LF Daniel Murphy – 1B Justin Turner – 3B Jason Pridie – CF Ruben Tejada – 2B R.A. Dickey – P Pretty much the [...]
According to an official press release, the Mets have selected David Einhorn as their new minority partner. Per the release:
Mets 7 Cubs 4 The Cubs looked so bad, the umpires called the game rather than put the Chicago fans through the misery of watching nine innings of ineptitude.
Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Chicago Cubs righthander Casey Coleman. BTW, game time is 8:05 PM; I incorrectly listed it as 7:35 in last night’s postgame recap. Jose Reyes – SS Josh Thole – C Carlos Beltran – RF Jason Bay – LF Daniel Murphy – 1B Justin [...]
