Then and Now

I was sitting in my living room watching the Mets drop last night's game to the Rockies when it occurred to me that the optimism I had at the start of the season was gone. As I sit here writing...

Odds and Ends

Sorry for not getting a post up for Sunday. The idea is still to try to post every day, but I expect I'll miss a few here and there. I don't think I have a full post in me on...

The End of the Pedro Era

With multiple sources confirming that the Mets and pitcher Tim Redding have agreed to a one-year deal, it would seem that there is no room left at the inn for Pedro Martinez -- assuming the Mets will sign Derek Lowe...

Demolition Man, Part I

It's a good thing next year's Mets changes weren't being planned while Seaver and Piazza were walking into the center field sunset a week ago Sunday. It's even better that I'll have no part in such weighty discussions, because I'm...

Mets 08 Lament (with an eye to 09)

The second guessers are coming out in droves. As if its not bad enough to have experienced the pain and suffering of the past two Septembers, we now have to listen to a laundry list of reasons and less than...

Once Again, No October

Game 162: Marlins 4 - Mets 2 I'm going to be pretty brief today. I want a day or two just to not think much about the Mets, and then I'll be back with many more thoughts. Also, if I'm...

This Time They Pulled It Out

Game 159: Mets 7 - Cubs 6 In the bottom of the ninth yesterday, Carlos Beltran delivered the big hit that was sorely lacking late in Wednesday's game. While perhaps not an artistic success, this one kept things alive going...

Pedro Isn't Pedro Anymore

Game 154: Braves 4 - Mets 2 With 19 starts under his belt and the season winding down, I think it's fair to say that the Pedro Martinez that we've been seeing is likely to be the only Pedro we're...

It's High Noon, Gangster Jerry

Game 149: Nationals 7 - Mets 2 I never felt any sense of surety that the Mets would make the playoffs, but I have to admit that I didn't see this coming. I don't believe that you can take a...

Applying the Tourniquet

Game 141: Phillies 3 - Mets 0 (Friday) Game 142: Phillies 6 - Mets 2 (Sunday Afternoon) Game 143: Mets 6 - Phillies 3 (Sunday Night) The difference between the 2008 Mets and their 2007 counterparts was in evidence Sunday...

Winning Is Harder When You Have Something to Lose

Game 135: Mets 5 - Marlins 4 (Friday) Game 136: Marlins 4 - Mets 3 (Saturday) Game 137: Mets 6 - Marlins 2 (Sunday) Sorry for being MIA for a couple of days. It's been a busy holiday weekend for...

Chose Your Scapegoat

Game 133: Phillies 8 - Mets 7 (13) Last night the game Mets lost a game in a manner that we've seen too many times this year. While the loss certainly stung, I've gotten beyond any personal need to hang...

The Eighth Dwarf: Sweepy

Game 128: Mets 5 - Braves 4 For some reason I got the idea for the title and picture on the train home from the game last night. I hoped a good night's sleep would get it out of my...

Mets Bullpen Saves a Pedro Win!

Game 123: Mets 7 - Pirates 4 Yesterday I made the point about the similarity of the setup of the ninth inning to last Monday's grim loss. The Mets bullpen carried that thought a little further last night and turned...

Riding the Rollercoaster

Game 113: Padres 4 - Mets 2 (Wednesday) Game 114: Mets 5 - Padres 3 (Thursday) In a season where nothing comes easy, the last two games of the Padres series were representative of what we've seen the last four...

The Astros Series

Game 109: Astros 7 - Mets 3 (Friday) Game 110: Astros 5 - Mets 4 (Saturday) Game 111: Astros 4 - Mets 0 (Sunday) Hey gang. Your intrepid blogger is getting over his bout of food poisoning. I'll be back...

Mets' Extend Streak to Eight

Game 93: Mets 2 - Rockies 1 (Friday) Game 94: Mets 3 - Rockies 0 (Saturday) Even when the Mets face a couple of tough pitchers and only manage 5 runs in two games they still win both of them....

Winning Ugly Beats Losing Pretty Every Time

Game 89: Mets 10 - Phillies 9 When you score ten runs it's supposed to be a laugher. It turned out to be anything but that, but it was still a win. Pedro looked much more in command last night....

Three Days in Philly

Game 86: Phillies 3 - Mets 2 (Friday) Game 87: Mets 9 - Phillies 4 (Saturday) Game 88: Mets 4 - Phillies 2 (12) (Sunday) The question has to be asked: Are the Mets now in the Phillies' heads? Yes,...

Armas Gets a "W", Pedro Is Hit Hard Again

Game 83: Mets 7 - Cardinals 4 (Tuesday) Game 84: Cardinals 8 - Mets 7 (Wednesday) As nice as Tuesday night's victory was, I had the feeling that they would follow it up with a loss. To their credit, they...

Win One, Lose One

Game 78: Mets 15 - Yankees 6 (Afternoon at Yankee Stadium) Game 79: Yankees 9 - Mets 0 (Evening at Shea Stadium) I was talking to my mom after the afternoon victory. While I was happy with the effort, I...

The Mariners Series

Game 75: Mariners 5 - Mets 2 (Monday) Game 76: Mariners 11 - Mets 0 (Tuesday) Game 77: Mets 8 - Mariners 2 (Wednesday) I wish that I was shocked that the Mets played down to the level of their...

Tough One for Pedro

Game 73: Rockies 7 - Mets 1 I had a long day working in the yard yesterday. It was real back-breaking stuff, and I'm nowhere near as young as I used to be. Last night I dragged my tired old...

Split Decision

Game 67: Rangers 8 - Mets 7 Game 68: Mets 4 - Rangers 2 The Mets split a pair of games with Texas on Sunday afternoon. Given all that has been happening with the team recently, that's probably fitting. If...

The Return of Pedro

Game 57: Mets 9 - Giants 6 Watching Pedro last night was amazing. He was obviously rusty and lacking pinpoint command of his pitches, but his fastball velocity was in the high 80s to low 90s. If he could keep...
