When I originally wrote this 4-part series back in October this blog was getting only a fraction of the visitors it is getting now. I wanted to share these with those of you that didn't catch it the first time around. I really enjoyed writing about these 13 games that I felt were the highlights of the season.

A Final Look Back at 2005 Part 1

  • April 10 -- Pedro beats the Braves for the Mets' first win
    Pedro Martinez pitches a complete game in Atlanta to end the 5-game losing streak.
  • April 15 -- Who the hell is this guy?
    Former whipping boy Aaron Heilman piches a 1-hitter against the Marlins.
  • May 21 -- Mr. Koo vs. The Big Eunuch
    Tim McCarver declared it one of the great mismatch at-bats of all time, and indeed it was -- for Randy Johnson.
  • June 11 -- Cliff's Improbable Home Run Beats Anaheim
    Because sometimes you have to hit 2 home runs in an at-bat to get a win...

    Woody's walk-off salvages a game where Graves & co. squander an 8 run lead.

    Steve Trachsel comes off the DL to shut out the San Francisco Giants.

A Final Look Back at 2005 Part 4
