NEW YORK -- David Wright's final hit of the night dropped slowly, agonizingly in front of Philadelphia Phillies right fielder Hunter Pence before finally falling to the ground in the bottom of the ninth. When it did, it landed with a thud, much like Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon did a batter before, when he landed on his backside, in his vain attempt to field Daniel Murphy's game-tying two-out hit. The Mets pounced on Wright in the outfield, his third hit and fourth RBI of the game, giving them a wild, comeback 6-5 win at Citi Field on Thursday night. Justin Turner provided the cream pie to the face a few minutes later during Wright's on-camera postgame interview, but the Mets had landed a much heavier blow to the Phillies. Again, the Mets showed the type of resiliency that's allowed them to remain within 4 1/2 games of the NL East-leading Washington Nationals. Again, the Phillies had to absorb a rough loss that threatened their belief that their talent w...

For those of you who missed the first half of the season, you got the gist of things if you tuned in last night’s victory over the Phillies.
David Wright, who delivered the game-winner in the ninth along with hitting a homer, said as much when he indicated the Mets worked every at-bat and utilized every out. No waste for these Mets.

A TV cameraman made what has to be the most nonchalant one-handed catch of a foul ball this season— and he didn't stop doing his job while grabbing the ball.
During the first inning of the Chicago Cubs-Atlanta Braves game Thursday night at Turner Field, a foul ball was hit in the direction of the cameraman wearing a Braves hat— so you know he works for TBS— on the second...

Wow, still on a big-high from last night. I woke up happy and ready to take on the day this morning. The hell with breakfast, I’m brimming with plenty of energy. We’ve always called the Mets-Phillies match-ups a big rivalry, but let’s face it, it’s tough to call the last five years anything more than a Slaughterhouse 5 for the Mets. Last night however, that was huge. Now...

In the past decade, the Mets minor league system has not been regarded with any kind of respect. Although the minor league system has produced David Wright, Jose Reyes, and several of the starters on this 2012 team, it has also seen many “top prospects” fizzle out or not reach their full potential. This lack of respect comes from prospects like Philip Humber, Fernando Martinez...
