Tonight May Have Been Good-Bye To 20 for Dickey

R.A. Dickey has had an amazin’ season for a horrendous team.  But don’t we all just wish the rest of the team would muster up enough offense to get Dickey to 20 wins, and presumably a Cy Young?  Of course we do, we’re fans. But this Mets team was unable to support Dickey and once [...]

One Last Dance with Chipper by SBRForum.com

  Now that they’ve fallen out of the National League playoff picture the New York Mets have been reduced to the role of spoilers for the rest of this baseball season. They’ll try to live up to that role this weekend when they host the NL Wild-Card leading Atlanta Braves for three games at Citi [...]

On the Verge of Getting Swept by One of the Worst Teams in the NL….AWESOME

The Mets are on the verge of being swept in a four game series by the Colorado Rockies… That is absolutely miserable. I have nothing else to say, except I am tired of hearing about how amazing Jenrry Mejia has been in Buffalo as a starter.  Bring him up already.  Put him in the rotation [...]

Pack It Up, Pack It In, Let NEXT SEASON Begin

“We have not packed it in…When you sit on the outside and watch a game like tonight, perception is they’ve packed it in.” – Terry Collins. Well, Terry, when you make fundamental and mental errors like the team did tonight it’s plain to see this team is looking toward next season.  So, as a fan, [...]

Beating A Dead Horse: Just Not With A Bat, Because the Team Doesn’t Hit Anything With Bats

I’m not spending much time on this subject because I did yesterday…But this team DOES NOT score. In fact, their only run was scored tonight without an RBI because it was on a double play ball.  The team only had 4 hits tonight, and have scored a grand total of 1 run and 10 hits [...]

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 [...]

Harvey Got Hit, Let’s Not Overreact

Alright, so Matt Harvey is still a rookie, and he’s allowed to get hit from time to time.  I was still encouraged by tonight’s outing though, because he didn’t walk a lot of guys.  Even though he faced the Padres tonight, they still have a line up full of major league hitters, and they’re still [...]

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 [...]

Just When They Suck Me In, They Just Suck

I am not going to spend much time talking about tonight’s horrendous 5-2 loss to the Nationals, and I’m not going to focus on moral victories, because there is no such thing right now.  Instead I’m going to complain. I’m going to complain about how every time I wait to invest myself into this team, [...]
