Mets Come Up Short of Sweeping Braves

Braves 8 - Mets 5 The Mets provided Steve Trachsel offense that Tom Glavine could only dream about, but Trax picked a bad day to be just plain bad. Moved up a day in front of Victor Zambrano to give the Mets a better chance of winning a game in...

Same Teams, Same Place, but the Voodoo Has Faded

After dropping the last two games to the Braves at the end of their last homestand, the Mets embarked on a ten game road trip to San Diego, San Francisco and Atlanta. The players seemed to have a good attitude, but we fans were a little apprehensive. West coast swings...

These Mets Just Don't Dread the Ted

Mets 1 - Braves 0 Prescription for beating the Braves: Take one vintage Tom Glavine, mix in one longball from Lo Duca, add a few splashes of near-flawless defense, a dose of Aaron Heilman at his unhittable best, and cap it off with our slider-slinging closer. For the second night...

Beltran Returns

Adam Rubin reports on his Surfing the Mets that Carlos Beltran will return to the Mets lineup for tonight's game vs. the Braves. I don't know about you, but I'm keeping all of my fingers and toes crossed until game time. Also, if you get a chance check out Marty...

It's the Braves Fans Turn to Go Crazy

Before you leave a comment or e-mail me, I agree that the Mets have done nothing towards exorcising the demons of their past by winning a solitary game in Atlanta. The thing is, I believe that it's actually the Mets fan (me included) and not the players on this current...

Beating Atlanta is Fun-damental

Mets 5 - Braves 2 The Mets did all of the little things right tonight, got good pitching from Pedro and a couple of dingers from David Wright, and sent the tomahawk choppers home disappointed tonight. In other words, it was as good as it gets for the Mets at...

Bannister Goes on the DL, Beltran Doesn't

The Mets have decided to play it safe with Brian Bannister's hamstring and put him on the DL. I think this is a good move. He'll only miss a couple of starts if he's ready to pitch when he's eligible to come off the DL. You just don't want to...

The Ted Doesn't Seem Quite As Scary Anymore

Almost everything in the papers today that isn't about Brian Bannister's hamstring is about the Mets' venturing back into what has been the franchise's House of Horrors, Turner Field in Atlanta. With Mets fans still smarting from the last two games of the Mets-Braves series at Shea, you can feel...

Bannister Update

There is some print confirmation on Brian Bannister's hamstring injury. On Mets.com, Marty Noble is confirming what WFAN reported earlier. Doctors that administered an MRI to Brian Bannister have told the rookie pitcher that there was tearing of the hamstring, and have classified the injury as a "grade 1 strain",...

Bannister May Not Need to Go on the DL

During their "20-20" news updates, WFAN is reporting that Brian Bannister will not go on the disabled list, but rather is day-to-day with a strained hamstring. I've been looking for some confirmation on this from the Mets' web site or any other print source but have been unable to find...

Who Will Be the Fifth Starter Now?

Brian Bannister feels that his hamstring injury is a only bad cramp and that he won't miss his next start. Unfortunately, I don't think anyone that saw him pull that hammy yesterday maintains anything close to that level of optimism. We'll have some answers today when the results of Bannister's...

Mets Win Game, Lose Bannister

Mets 9 - Giants 7 (11) The Mets overcame both an ugly-looking groin injury to starting pitcher Brian Banister and having closer Billy Wagner doing his best Braden Looper imitation in the ninth, winning the rubber game of the series against the Giants. Bannister struggled a little early in the...

Trachsel Does His Job, Now It's Bannister's Turn

Steve Trachsel was at his best last night, as he often is against the San Francisco Giants. Since his ugly game against the Brewers on April 15, Trachsel has put back to back quality starts together on this west coast swing. Although he only wound up pitching 6 innings again,...

Mike Pelfrey Moving Up to Double-A

As reported by Marty Noble on Mets.com, first round pick Mike Pelfrey has been promoted to the Mets Double-A Binghamton franchise in a move that may be only a precursor of Pelfrey pitching in Shea Stadium later in the summer. Noble quotes GM Omar Minaya that Pelfrey has responded to...

Trachsel, Bullpen Halt Slide

Mets 4 - Giants 1 The offense wasn't scintillating, but it was good enough tonight. Home runs by Xavier Nady and Cliff Floyd, combined with great pitching from Steve Trachsel, Duaner Sanchez and Billy Wagner, proved to be the prescription to cure the 2-game losing streak. Trachsel looked a little...

Some Didn't Have the Chance to Get Pissed At Keith

I thought I might take a moment here to take advantage of all the traffic my stand on Keith Hernandez has generated. Before you click on the email link to tell me how much you hate my guts, take a moment to support Mets fans who still do not have...

Milledge Might Be On the Horizon

In Newsday, David Lennon cites manager Willie Randolph that in the event Carlos Beltran goes on the DL Friday, Lastings Milledge could possibly be called up as a replacement. As recently as a couple of days ago, this was something the team was supposedly not even considering. I've been on...

Mets Take No Offense to San Francisco

Giants 6 - Mets 2 Maybe I've just been up too late too many nights, but the Mets losses on this road trip are starting to take on a depressing similarity. One of the oldest truisms in baseball is that your team never looks worse than when they're not hitting....

It Really is Okay to Say Something Stupid Occasionally

For the most part, I've always kept this blog about New York Mets baseball. I haven't tried to work my politics or my belief system into things, as they have nothing to do with the Mets. The whole todo over Keith Hernandez and the female San Diego massage therapist, however,...

Lay Off Keith Hernandez, Thought Police

Another day, another silly controversy. Now the Thought Police are after Keith Hernandez for questioning what a woman was doing in the Padres dugout. It started out as a valid point in that MLB rules state that only a trainer and assistant trainer can be in the dugout, and she...

Zambrano and Mets Offense Both Disappoint Again

Padres 7 - Mets 4 Victor Zambrano was at his Schizophrenic worst, and the offense made Clay Hensley look like a future Hall of Famer for 5 innings before scratching a few runs out to get back in the game. Then the Mets 'pen bled a couple more, the offense...

Amidst Rotation Worries, Thankfully Pedro is Still Pedro

Pedro Martinez doesn't understand why his velocity is even an issue these days, and you can't really blame him for that. As long as he's able to get enough zip on his fastball to effectively change speeds off of, he'll be able to frustrate major-league hitters. As quoted by Don...

Pedro Rights the Ship

Mets 8 - Padres 1 In a game that ended mercifully earlier and with a happier result, Pedro had his best outing of the year, striking out 11 in 7 innings and completely dominating the Padres offense. In the process, Pedro raised his record to 4-0, and ensured the Mets...

Slumbering Offense, Snoozer of a Game

Padres 2 - Mets 1 (17) Sorry for the lateness of this post. I was up until the bitter end last night, and then, sure enough, when it ended I had trouble falling asleep. So today I'm tired and disappointed. The Padres batters did their best not to take this...

Some Odds and Ends for a Friday Afternoon

It's hard to believe that we're just over two weeks into the season. For some reason it feels like a lot longer. At least there is no shortage of things to talk about. In fact, so much has been happening that I've neglected to mention a few things that I...

Kaz Gets to Visit His Happy Place for One Magical Night

As reported by your tired but happy correspondent last evening, Kaz Matsui's return to the Mets last night was a rousing success. I've never been a Matsui basher, and figured he might be the best all-around choice for the second base job this season before he got hurt. Still, when...

Matsui, Bench Key Amazing Win

Mets 7 - Padres 2 Kaz Matsui opened up this season as he has in both of his previous seasons, with a home run in his first at bat. His inside-the-park homer leading off the third inning tied him with Ken Griffey, Jr. as the only major-leaguer to hit a...

Review: Baseball Between the Numbers

I need to start this review with a disclaimer. I am not someone who has a long background in statistical analysis of baseball. I became a fan long before sabermetrics became a part of the lexicon of baseball. If you are someone that is fairly advanced in your understanding and...

Why Do We Keep Doing This To Ourselves?

After taking a day off from reading about the Mets in the area's papers, I was back at it this morning. After reading the first few articles and scanning the rest of the headlines, I decided that I just couldn't take any more hand-wringing over dropping two of three to...

Killing Two Birds with One Stone

I've had a thought about how we can solve a couple of recent problems that have cropped up with the Mets. First of all, you have that embarrassment of a song. Don't get me wrong here, at 47 years old, I feel as unqualified to weigh in on a rap...

Glavine Deserved Better

Braves 2 - Mets 1 For all of the ups and downs that Tom Glavine has experienced over his Mets' career, I wish I had a dime for every time I said the three word title of this post. Betrayed by a stumbling Mets offense and a third baseman that...

Find Me a Real Alternative to Zambrano and I'll Sign On

You'll forgive me if there are no news links in this post today. I started reading the New York papers this morning and just had to give it up. It wasn't that they didn't do their usual great job today, it's just that I learned long ago that my key...

Stink, Stank, Stunk.

Braves 7 - Mets 1 This is actually my third attempt to make some sense out of this game, and if it doesn't work I'm giving it up for the night. It's not that I'm so shocked the Mets played badly and lost, that's going to happen sometimes. It's not...

A Historic Victory for Pedro, a Significant One for the Mets

So Pedro manages to grab his historic 200th career win last night, in the process helping the Mets build a historic 5-game lead on the Braves. While it's silly to place undue significance on April baseball, it was extremely important for the Mets to set the tone early in 2006....

Pedro Wins 200th, Mets Open 5 Game Lead on Atlanta

Mets 4 - Braves 3 Pedro Martinez wasn't at his most dominating tonight, but he was good enough to pitch the Mets past the Braves -- with a little help from Duaner Sanchez and Billie Wagner. Martinez pitched 6-2/3 solid innings, giving up 6 hits, walking 2 and striking out...

Keith Hernandez Back in the Booth Tonight

Apparently I wasn't the only one that was getting concerned about Keith Hernandez' unexplained absence from the booth for 6 games amidst wild rumors that he had been sacked for a trivial remark about Mike Piazza. I mentioned in yesterday's game wrap-up that Gary Cohen finally mentioned that Keith was...

Two Things to Lose Some Sleep Over

I've been uncharacteristically optimistic all spring, and feel like I need to take a step back and embrace some of my old pessimism. Maybe it's the Bravos rolling into town, with a long road trip looming at the end of this 3-game series. Maybe it's a life-long Mets fan's discomfort...

Losing Streak Ends At One

Mets 9 - Brewers 3 This game lived up to that old "closer than the final score would indicate" cliché. Brian Bannister was in constant trouble for 5 innings, walking 5 and falling behind batters all day, but left on the long side of a 4-1 score. Darren Oliver came...

Mr. Julio, Your Flight to Norfolk is Ready for Takeoff

Happy Easter to all of you who celebrate the holiday. In case you missed it from earlier, Carlos Beltran will miss today's game with a tight hamstring. And you thought that Jorge Julio's performance was the most painful thing you saw yesterday. Speaking of Julio, it comes as no surprise...

Beltran Will Miss Today's Game Because of a Tight Hamstring

Another dose of harsh reality after yesterday's loss to Milwaukee -- the AP is reporting that Carlos Beltran injured his hamstring when he collided with Prince Fielder at first base in yesterday's game. After being told by the doctor yesterday that the injury was not serious, Beltran woke up today...

Mets Winning Streak Ends With a Thud

Brewers 8 - Mets 2 The Mets 7-game winning streak has ended in a convincing manner. They never looked truly in this game when the score was still relatively close, and another horrendous Jorge Julio outing in the eighth took any suspense out of the outcome. Steve Trachsel was just...

The Keith Hernandez Watch Continues

I'm still somewhat skeptical of the conspiracy theories surrounding Keith Hernandez' absence from the booth last night after not making the trip for those 3 games in Washington. I've heard the same rumors that some of you have, regarding a comment Keith made in a game last week that Paul...

Nobody Ever Said It Was Going to Be Easy

Mets 4 - Brewers 3 Tonight served as a reminder that nothing worthwhile ever comes easy. It was calm enough for a while, as Tom Glavine dominated the Brew Crew through 6 innings, allowing only an unearned run caused by a sloppy Victor Diaz error in left field. Glavine scattered...

Swaggering is Back in Vogue for the Mets

It's been a long time since we've seen a really well-constructed Mets team. With due respect to the 1999 and 2000 editions, they weren't even close to this team in overall balance. The very good Mets teams of the mid to late '80s probably are a better comparison. Although they...

Nats, Hostile Crowd Fail to Intimidate Pedro

Mets 3 - Nationals 1 The Washington crowd did their best to intimidate Pedro, but should have realized that he thrives on this stuff. Pedro went 7 strong innings against the Nats, the only blemish being a solo homer by Jose Vidro. His stuff wasn't awesome, and his control wasn't...

Mets 7 - Nationals 1 Despite admitting some nerves early that hampered his control, Brian Bannister continued to justify the team's faith in him with a strong 7 inning performance in Washington.

High Noon at RFK

Beanballs and Sandmen

Mets Claw Out a Win Over the Marlins

A New Day Has Dawned

Mets 10 - Nationals 5 Welcome to the new reality of Mets baseball 2006. It's been kind of ugly with all the hit batters the last couple of days, but it makes a point, too. The Mets pitchers aren't conceding the inside of the plate to opposing batters anymore, and...

It's Always Something
