Mets 3 Marlins 0 Where would the Mets be without everyone’s favorite knuckleballer? Scary thought, isn’t it?
Having won their past two series, (break up the Mets!) New York heads down to Amazing Technicolor Marlins Park for a series with the Marlins. Miami followed up their offseason spending spree with a comical, and somewhat predictable, fire sale at the trade deadline. The Marlins are one organization that even Mets fans can point [...]
Phillies 3 Mets 2 The Mets enjoyed less than 24 hours in third place. Now, they head into the weekend hell bent on staying out of the cellar.
The 2011 World Champion Cardinals were ten games out of the Wild Card this time last year. The Mets and Phillies are both currently ten games behind in the Wild Card standings. (Ironically, the Cardinals are one of the two teams at the top.) Just for kicks, I’d like to add that on August 30, [...]
Mets 3 Phillies 2 The Mets beat the Phillies for the second straight night, locking the two teams in a tie for third place in the NL East and seventh in the Wild Card.
Mets 9 Phillies 5 The Mets make forward movement in the fight for third place. Check the sky for falling lizards, however, because the Mets won this game primarily because of the bullpen.
As the Mets were cruising into the All-Star break with an improbable winning percentage, I distinctly remember whispers from beat writers, bloggers, and the SNY announcers that Terry Collins was in line for Manager of the Year. After all, the pundits predicted putrid performance from Flushing, with most picking the Mets to finish dead last. [...]
Here’s a link to Collin McHugh‘s latest blog post in which he describes going to New York, pitching a gem, then going back to Buffalo. You have to love his maturity and positive attitude. That being said, our trip from Buffalo to NYC to Buffalo is one met with excitement, not dread, pity or fear. [...]
Mets 2 Astros 1 The Mets follow up their offensive outburst on Saturday with yet another explosive win over hapless Houston.
In case you missed it, Mike Francesa gave his opinion on the Mets after they were swept by the Rockies. Francesa doesn’t need me to promote him, so it pains me to do so, but this is absolutely priceless. And couldn’t be more true. He pretty much lets out every thought and emotion that many [...]
It has come to that point of the New York Mets season again when the team is completely unbearable to watch, loses most games it plays, shows little to no effort nor desire to win, and acts like the Same Old Mets over and over again. But why should we Mets fans subject ourselves to [...]
Mets 3 Astros 1 R.A. Dickey comes to the rescue, and the Mets finally score a few runs against horrific pitching.
Astros 3 Mets 1 After 18 years managing in the minor leagues, Suffern High School grad and Seton Hall University alum Tony DeFrancesco finally won his first game as a MLB manager. Unfortunately, this is a Mets blog so this milestone doesn’t warm our hearts as much as we’d like it to for the local [...]
Rockies 1 Mets 0 Is it possible that the Mets have not yet hit rock bottom?
Here’s a symbol from some better times (1998-2000, at least). It’s the bobblehead version of Mike Piazza that the Mets will be giving away this Saturday, when they play the Astros at 1:10 PM.
