Mets 9 Dodgers 0 Before Thursday, the Dodgers may have been the worst first-place team of all-time. As they slide into an abyss, my prediction of a sweep is looking like a slam dunk.
There’s no way I’m staying up for this one — too long a week for me and I have to get up way too early. In fact I may not make it to the opening pitch. That said, please feel free to post your thoughts below, both during and after the game. Considering that the [...]
The Mets (40-36, 3rd place in the N.L. East) begin a 4-game set with the Dodgers (43-33, 1st place in the N.L. West) in Los Angeles tonight at 10:10 PM EDT. The Dodgers have lost 8 of their last 9 games, and are coming off a sweep at the hands of the San Francisco Giants. [...]
Mets 17 Cubs 1 In a big way, Mets unleash their frustration over losing a series to the worst team in baseball.
The Mets have run into another losing streak, having dropped 4 in a row. They now sit at 39-36, 4.5 games back of the Nationals. They lost a couple of tough 1-run games to the Yankees at Citi, but then dropped 2 games (and a few routine pop ups and grounders) to the lowly Cubs. [...]
Cubs 5 Mets 3 Who knew the Ringling Brothers were from Flushing? If the excuse is still related to the Mets being tired, perhaps someone should start testing for African Sleeping Sickness.
Cubs 6 Mets 1 Even the worst team in baseball wins once every three games.
Mets vs Cubs: Snakebitten Edition I don’t want to be cliche and use the “this is a trap series” but this is a trap series. When playing well, the Mets have a bad habit of playing down to their competition. This is a young team and I expect lapses such as this, but I am [...]
In the 8th inning of last night’s game, two left-handed hitters were due to bat for the Yankees. Terry Collins elected not to bring in LHP Tim Byrdak, but kept Miguel Batista in for a second inning of work. Batista threw a tailing fastball to Robinson Cano, who drove it over the home run apple [...]
Yankees 6 Mets 5 At least it wasn’t a sweep.
Yankees 4 Mets 3 Through the first two-thirds of the game, it looked like it might be an easy win for the Mets. But, we found out why you shouldn’t count your chickens before they hatch.
Mets 6 Yankees 4 Mets get a taste of victory against the Yankees — and the flavor is just like chicken.
Round 2 of the 2012 Subway Series kicks off (whoops, wrong sport) tonight at Citi Field. The Yankees (41-27, 1st place in the AL East) take on the Mets (38-32, 2nd place in the NL East) beginning tonight at 7:10 PM. The Yankees swept the Mets two weeks ago in the Bronx. Mets closer [...]
After teeing off on the Orioles this week, the Mets head to the links to tee off on their off day. Ah, team bonding. Anyways, the Mets have decided to alternate series sweeps – loss, win, loss, win. This weekend would be a fine time to buck that trend, as they take on the Yankees [...]
Mets 4 Orioles 3 As expected and per the biorhythms, the Mets sweep the Orioles. Mets Game Notes Due to work commitments, I was unable to view this game, so please post your comments so we can all discuss. Many thanks! Next Mets Game The Mets get a day off on Thursday, then face the [...]
