The Denver Broncos’ new quarterback, Peyton Manning, was on hand to watch the Mets take on the Rockies at Coors field on Sunday.  Manning was the backup QB (albeit briefly) behind Todd Helton at Tennessee.  He cheered on his old teammate when Helton blasted a game-tying grand slam.  But Manning also spent some time catching […]

Rockies 18 Mets 9 Sometimes, all you need is one domino to fall. The Mets knocked that one domino over in the fifth, with two outs, and next thing you knew a tie ballgame became a comfy four-run lead. Then came the BOTTOM of the fifth inning …

We Like[d] Ike!

Ike Davis gives me headaches. I throw on the Mets game after a friend told me what Kung Fo Panda just did. After watching Dillon Gee struggle, I get to watch Ike Davis strike out looking with the bases load in the 8th inning against the San Francisco Giants. The Mets would lose 7-2. After […]

Mets Game 17: Win Over Marlins

Mets 2 Marlins 1 Seems we’re still traveling in a time machine and emerging from it to watch pitcher-dominated baseball from the 1970s — and I’m loving every minute of it.

Greetings from Coca-Cola Park!

Happy Baseball Season everyone. I was able to attend last night’s Buffalo Bison-Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs game at beautiful Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, PA. I bought these seats in January, hoping to get a glimpse of either Matt Harvey or Jeurys Familia. Instead, we got Dylan Owen, making an emergency start for Jeremy Hefner, who […]

Blog Roundup: The .500 Edition

There have been times over the past couple of years where a Mets record of .500 was a good thing.  But after a 7-3 start in their first 10 games, the Mets have gone 1-5 against the Braves and the Giants to drop their record to 8-8.  The hope, if you’re looking for some, is […]

Mets Game 16: Loss to Giants

Giants 7 Mets 2 In this series, the Mets were lucky to not face Matt Cain and to see Tim Lincecum at a time when he was looking quite human. However, the Mets still dropped three of four, and have now reached Omar Minaya’s perpetual goal of .500.

Mets Game 15: Loss to Giants

Giants 6 Mets 1 The weather conditions were reminiscent of those that might be experienced during an early season game at old Candlestick Park — cold, wet, windy. And as was often the case in those San Francisco games of yesteryear, the Giants beat the Mets.

Frankie Goes to Setup Role?

Somewhere in the swirling mess of Saturday’s game against the Giants is a disappointing performance by Frank Francisco.  The Mets’ closer let up 2 hits and a walk in the ninth while attempting to protect a 3-run lead.  After it was obvious Francisco didn’t have his stuff or his command, he was pulled by Terry […]
