Mets' Santana to make next start at Yankee Stadium

Mets ace Johan Santana will get two extra days of rest after his no-hitter. The team says Santana will make his next start Friday night at Yankee Stadium in the opener of the Subway Series. Santana threw a career-high 134 pitches Friday night against St. Louis in the first no-hitter in team history. The Mets have been trying to get Santana additional rest this year after he missed...

Stop it, Yankee fans -- Johan Santana did pitch a no-hitter, not a one-hitter

Squawker Jon and I will be at the first game of the Subway Series on Friday. It also happens to be Johan Santana's first start after his no-hitter, so we will see if he will emulate Johnny Vander Meer and pitch two no-hitters in a row. Not very likely -- Terry Collins would have to be tied with duct tape to a pole in the dugout, the way Pedro Martinez was a few years ago, to...

Jon Stewart Experiences Mets No-Hitter Nirvana

If you haven’t seen comedian Jon Stewart’s reaction to Johan Santana’s no-hitter, I think you’re going to love this video… The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Stewart is a life-long suffering Mets fan just like many of us and he does an outstanding job of sharing his reaction which I’m sure was very similar to many of our own reactions. I’m still on a high from that night…

Jon Stewart attended Mets' first franchise no-hitter (Video)

The Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his family were in attendance at Citi Field during Friday night's New York Mets game when Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in franchise history. During Monday night's episode, Stewart showed raw footage of himself, his wife and children celebrating Santana's no-hitter in the crowd. The Daily ShowGet More: Daily Show Full...

Mets Fan In Gary Carter Jersey Who Joined Johan Santana Celebration Arrested

Kudos to Mets fan Rafael Diaz. If you’re going to get arrested for running onto a field, make it a once-in-a-lifetime moment. Don’t just run onto a field during the 5th inning of a Tigers-Yankees game. Wait until Johan Santana throws the first no-hitter* in Mets’ history. Not only to you get to slap asses with R.A. Dickey & teammates, you also get a moneyshot on the front...

Mets Reliever Ramon Ramirez Strains Hamstring Celebrating Johan Santana's No-Hitter, Headed to Disabled List

Johan Santana's no-hitter will be a memorable moment for years to come for many in attendance. For Mets reliever Ramon Ramirez, however, he may remember it for a different reason. Ramirez strained his hamstring running in from the bullpen to celebrate with Santana and his teammates after the final out was recorded. "He hadn't even gotten to the pile where they were jumping...

3 Up & 3 Down: All About The Pitching Edition

The New York Mets wind up taking 3 of the 4 games against the St. Louis Cardinals, losing the finale on Monday afternoon. Since I work fulltime, it’s very hard for me to catch weekday games, but it’s really of no consequence, because this edition of 3&3 is all about some great weekend pitching by the Mets. 3 Up: Oh, What A Night: Friday night Johan Santana made Mets history...

This Week in Fantasy Baseball: Week 9

Johan Santana became the first Met pitcher to throw a no-hitter in the 50 history of the New York franchise. Santana fanned eight Cardinals in the contest, including a strikeout of Cardinal third baseman David Freese to end the game. The lefty change up specialist struck out eight Cardinals over nine clean innings, while throwing a career high 134 pitches. The magic in Los Angeles...

Upon Further Review: Thank God the Yankees didn’t trade Phil Hughes for Johan Santana

Wait a minute. This is getting confusing.

The New York Mets Finally Have A No-Hitter: A History of Holding My Breath

Where were you when the world stopped turning? A pitcher from the New York Mets actually pitched a no-hitter. That’s right. We can all stop holding our breath. (I was. Weren’t you?) After 8,019 games, the second longest active drought in baseball came to an end yesterday. The longest drought in baseball obviously still belongs to my favorite punching bag, the Chicago Cubs. How’s...

Pre-Game: St. Louis Cardinals (27-26) @ New York Mets (30-23)

OK Jon Niese, it’s your turn again.  For the 2nd straight start, Jon Niese (3-2 4.55 ERA) will be following consecutive complete game shutouts by Johan Santana and R.A. Dickey.  Dickey followed up Santana’s no-hitter by tossing a pedestrian 7-hit complete game shutout yesterday to put the Mets a season high 7 games over .500.  Jake Westbrook (4-4 3.84 ERA) will have the...

MLB Power Rankings

Player of the Week? Johan Santana. We’re past the Memorial Day pole and into the Dog Days of Summer. There are so many tight races right now in baseball that it is nearly impossible to determine who is going to make the playoffs and who will be left at home. With inter-league baseball coming back this weekend, its time to start getting the awkward “Is Albert...

The Weekend That Was: Pitching, Pitching, Pitching

The Mets’ ability to remain as competitive as they have been through the first trimester of the season has been one of the biggest surprises in the Majors. All along, they’d been buoyed by the unsustainable hitting of David Wright, and their awful bullpen had somehow not come back to haunt them as much as it should have. However, it now seems they have found their strength. For...
