Mets fall to seven-games under .500

The New York Mets were defeated, 3-2 by the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night, dropping to a season-worst seven games under .500 in the process. Rick Ankiel, who signed with the Mets earlier in the day after clearing waivers, nearly robbed Ty Wigginton of a pinch-hit double to open the bottom of the seventh with [...]

No Runs, Big Problems

The Mets have been shut out 7 times this year, but doesn’t it seem like more? The more I watch this team, the more I realize that their first half success was reliant almost entirely on the shoulders of the starting pitching and two-out RBI hits.  And when the team doesn’t drive in any two-out [...]

I Would Ask “How Much Worse Can It Get”, But I’m Too Afraid of the Answer

Look, I’m aware that the Nationals are a very good team with excellent pitching, but ONE GAME isn’t too much to ask is it? Stephen Strausburg looked dominant today in the Nationals 5-2 win over the Mets, their second consecutive 5-2 victory over the Mets.  In a nod to consistency, this is the third straight [...]

WAIT! I Think Murphy Just Homered Again

Wow.  I guess this team woke up today, lead by Daniel Murphy finally breaking out of his home run slumber.  Prior to today Daniel Murphy went 352 at bats (and 273 this season) without a homer.  After he finally slugged his first of the year, he liked it so much, he did it again in [...]

R.A. Dickey is Unreal

Tonight, R.A. Dickey continued his unprecedented streak of domination.  Dickey threw his second straight one-hitter tonight, and struck out 13 batters, while improving his record to 11-1.  AT NO POINT heading into this season could you have convinced me that ANY Mets pitcher would be 11-1 with an ERA of 2.00.  Currently Dickey is on [...]
