Futuristic

I don’t want to bury the lead here, but I want to give Jacob deGrom his deserved props … because he was excellent on Tuesday and I lost a heated battle to my couch that night which prevented me from blogging. deGrom went seven strong on Tuesday giving up five hits and a walk as […]

A Happier Anniversary

July 22nd, 1986: When Dave Parker dropped one hit right to him … and Jesse Orosco didn’t.

Oh, and when Ray Knight was the baddest man on the planet.

(2:56:21 for the drop, and 4:37:28 for the catch, and 3:29:38 for the reason Orosco and Roger McDowell had to play the outfield.)

Hang It On Me

The Mets lost because Jon Niese can’t be expected to come back from the disabled list looking sharp. The Mets lost because their offense has retreated to their hole of suck. The Mets lost because Dustin Ackley said “was it like this, Endy?” But mostly, I’m convinced, the Mets lost because back in November, I […]

When Two Extremes Meet In The Middle

“Zack Wheeler goes against Odrisamer Despaigne on Sunday so that game could either be extremely entertaining, or reach through my soul and rip my throat out. Me being a Mets fan, there is no in between.” -Me … being extremely prescient as usual As you know, I hate being right. But when I wrote that last night, […]

Travis d'Arnaud Teeth

Back Not With A Bang But With An Easy Swing

We should send more thanks to Wally Backman tonight. Maybe send him an FTD Floral Bouquet or something. Because whatever he did to Travis d’Arnaud is working in spades as the Mets rode his hot bat to the tune of a 5-4 victory. d’Arnaud had three hits out of five and drove in two of […]

Jon Niese XCU

The Nose Knows Not What He Thinks He Knows

Jon Niese apparently got into a little hot water today. Here is a conversation he had with Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York … who is usually on the Yankees beat: “What do I think of Met fans?” Niese said with a laugh. “That’s a good question. I really don’t know except they want their […]

Ya Gotta Believe. . .Right?

I remember when I was this optimistic. Now that I am breaking into the world of media, reality has hit me. For the past six years this team has broken my heart. However, this season could be different. My radio host for Downtown Sports on Brookyln College Radio WBCR 1090-AM has high hopes for the […]

Realistically …

With mere days until the July 31st non-waiver deadline, rumors surrounding the Mets will come fast and furious. Their chance at becoming reality will most likely hinge on how they do on the west coast, where many a Mets season has gone to die. So perhaps its pointless to take a stab as to the […]

Walk It Out

The Mets broke the game open in the eighth, scoring four more runs that resulted in a 9-1 victory. In the last 10 games, this team has gone 8-2. More importantly, they’re hitting home runs at home and driving in runs when they need to. This could be a fluke, but I don’t care because […]

Cool Is A Rule … But Only While We’re Young

I expounded yesterday about how the Mets don’t have nearly enough easy victories. But that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy the nail biters once in a while. And Saturday’s victory over the Marlins was a nail biter that I can get behind. Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched six innings and gave up four runs. Not terrible, but not […]

Easy Peasy … For A Change

Friday was the kind of win we don’t often see from this incarnation of the New York Mets. A 7-1 victory over Miami which started with great pitching, contained early runs courtesy of Lucas Duda’s two run home run to put the game away, and where the late innings provided no drama in which to […]
