Phils do just enough Score a pair for Halladay Who scatters singles
This one deserves a haiku: Pelfrey still ailing Ike’s and Pridie’s homers moot Thanks to Howard’s bat
If I needed to tell you that the Mets and Phillies are set to play three important games this weekend, you wouldn’t be here at the LoHud Mets Blog. But let’s take a step back and look at what is really at stake here, tangibly. 1. If the Phillies sweep… Read More →
Livan slows Mets with his pitches like snails Ninth-inning rally, surprisingly, fails The expatriates from the land of poutine End win streak in game that was merely routine
I love Rob Neyer’s work. Generally, I could just retweet his pieces and save myself a lot of time and energy. But I found his Mets piece from today a bit curious, since I only agreed with around half of it, plus his conclusion (I see the Mets at around… Read More →
Umpire blindness costs Reyes a triple But for the Mets’ chances caused barely a ripple Murphy’s pinch-homer is moment of bliss But on play at second, his presence is missed Mets then battle back, a sac fly from Hu And two batters later, Murph again comes through Is it the… Read More →
Kudos to the Mets for winning yet again. Even with their slow start, if the Mets continue not to lose a game for the rest of the season, their 149-13 season mark should make them a playoff team for sure. For comparison, the vaunted 1986 team finished 108-54, or 41… Read More →
Tallest Met, in return, goes rather short But bullpen has upgraded from last resort Difference was Thole, previously bereft Of hit off of someone who throws with his left Suddenly an idea no longer seems silly Meaningful games played this weekend in Philly?
The now-invincible Mets, after three weeks of extreme vincibility, resume this evening with Chris Young on the mound. But I’d like to direct your attention instead to this piece of news: Brian Bannister has no plan to pitch this season, after fleeing Japan following the earthquake/tsunami. Bannister, you will remember,... Read More →
With Chris Young scheduled to start Tuesday in Washington, the Mets activated Young from the Disabled List, but chose not to demote Dillon Gee. Instead, Gee stays with New York, while D.J. Carrasco heads to Triple-A Buffalo. This move makes sense for many reasons. Gee pitched well, while Carrasco hadn’t… Read More →
Mets keep on bashing, showing their might Home run from Pridie, two more from Wright Armando lost a perfecto by umpire’s choice Mets made sure they needed no help from Jim Joyce
Bay’s bat arrives, roughly 16 months late While Gee pitches just well enough, though not great Davis hits one to the right field scoreboard While Murphy’s hit guarantees lead is assured
After four starts where clean innings were rare Big Pelf succeeded, with outs in the air Ike clouted big fly just when one was due (Though it only counted on further review) Met win streak, in single day, has now doubled Is Atlanta’s hold on fourth place now in trouble?
Wow, apparently the Mets see Willie Harris and Scott Hairston differently than I do! Angel Pagan hit the DL this afternoon, and Jason Pridie got the call from Triple-A. Pridie, once a top prospect with the Twins, is more of a glove than a bat in center field. He starts… Read More →
There was a lot of demand for Scott Hairston to be replaced on the roster by Nick Evans early this season. And I do understand the sentiment- Hairston struggled early, Evans is a homegrown talent. But Angel Pagan’s injury last night puts the need for Hairston and Willie Harris into… Read More →
