Mets 11 - Rockies 0 I remember watching Glavine struggle early in the year and wondering if he was really done. It wasn't just that he was giving up tons of hits and runs every time out, it was the fact that every hitter was just sitting on the outside...

Phillies 16 - Mets 6 I guess if you're going to end a nice winning streak you might as well do it in style. I watched this game off and on for most of the night, though normally I would have given up on it fairly early. As the season...

Spoiling Is For Losers?

Mets 3 - Phillies 2 Although I agree with the quote from Willie Randolph that is the headline for this post, I still enjoyed these last two games. I enjoyed watching Met-killers Bobby Abreu and Pat Burrell come up short in key situations. Still, there is a limit to the...

Not Quitting on the Season

Mets 3 - Marlins 2 Mets 5 - Marlins 4 Marlins 2 - Mets 1 Mets 5 - Nationals 2 Mets 5 - Nationals 2 Mets 6 - Nationals 5 Mets 6 - Phillies 5 I went away for a week and came back to a different team. And yes,...

Beating the Braves is Always Good

Mets 4 - Braves 1 Leaving for a week in Florida later this morning, but I couldn't miss noting a series win against Atlanta. Trust me, I know that September Met games are once again meaningless, but taking 2 of 3 from the Braves still has some meaning for the...

Hard to Watch

Braves 7 - Mets 4 It's getting harder to watch these games day by day. I'm finding myself torn as the remaining games of the season dwindle down. On one hand, I really want to watch, but when I put the game on they look really awful. I'm heading out...

Mets 4 - Braves 0 I don't know how many Met fans are still paying attention to the team, but those of us who still are really appreciated last night's game. It's always great on those rare occasions where we beat Atlanta, to see Chipper going down looking in the...

Losing Is Bad (and Other Ramblings)

Nats 6 - Mets 5 A once promising season has taken a really ugly turn at the end. Yesterday's game was a perfect representation of what's been going wrong, capped off by Looper and Matsui being the goats. You have to appreciate the irony of it. Still, though I know...

Playing It Out

Mets 7 - Cardinals 2 I didn't write about Saturday's dreary 4-2 loss because there wasn't anything new to say. That loss was so much like previous losses on this trip. Anything new was provided by Mike Piazza's return. The home run was cool; watching him get hit in the...

What's Left To Say?

Cardinals 3 - Mets 2 If there was one bright spot last night it was Jae Seo's continuing to show that he can truly be an important part of this team going forward. I guess if I taxed my brain really hard I might be able to come up with...

Reason To Believe

Cardinals 5 - Mets 0 I promised myself that I wouldn't watch the game last night. I needed a sanity break from this team. Yet, like a true addict, I couldn't stay away. I flipped the game back on many times during the evening, long after I had any real...

Not Yet

Braves 4 - Mets 3 I know a lot of Met fans aren't going to want to hear this, but despite everything I don't believe in curses, jinxes, voodoo or anything like that when it comes to baseball. I do believe that if you fail to execute in key situations,...

Howe Now, Willie?

Braves 3 - Mets 1 The Mets took another shambling step down the road to perdition last night during yet another scintillating loss to the Braves. At this point they are stuck in baseball's Twilight Zone, basically just losing the same game over and over again. There has been much...

Anyone Have Some Perspective I Can Borrow?

Braves 4 - Mets 2 After the game yesterday I sat there shaking my head and thinking over and over, "what a disaster." It's been a pet phrase of mine regarding all things Met for quite a long time. And then I thought about New Orleans, and I felt ashamed...

Labor Day Quick Hits

As the Mets prepare to begin the series with the Braves this afternoon, I have a few short moments to myself before family obligations take over my day. As ugly as this past week has been, it's amazing that the Mets are only 2-1/2 games out of the wildcard. Losing...

Thank You, Jae Seo

Mets 7 - Marlins 1 I'm not going to make more of a single victory than it deserves, but today's win was big enough. We don't need to see another complete collapse in September, now at least we carry a modicum of positive momentum with us into the House of...

It Only Hurts When You Watch

Marlins 5 - Mets 4 Once again the Mets manage to stage a rally in the 9th, once again they fall short. It's become a theme for the season. At some point if I'm feeling particularly OCD, I might sit down and try to calculate how many games the Mets...

Midnight in Miami

Marlins 4 - Mets 2 Last night sucked. I have nothing really positive to say about it. The Mets have decided to hurl themselves out of this race immediately after injecting themselves back in it, and I'm just plain tired of watching Dontrelle Willis romp through another game against us....

Anger Management

Phillies 3 - Mets 1 Leave it to the Mets to follow up the streak that put them back into the wild card race by losing 4 of 5. If they were actually trying to piss of their fans they couldn't be doing a better job. Funny how in what...

Phillies 8 - Mets 2 If Tuesday's game brought home everything that is great about being in a pennant race, yesterday's was the flip side. It hurt to watch Pedro take that kind of beating. It was a disappointing game on a lot of levels. You want more than that...
