Captain Clutch: Wright Ties Franchise Walk-Off Record, Mets Are 27-10 When He Has An RBI

WALK-OFF RECORD: David Wright singled home Jordany Valdespin to give the Mets a 6-5 walkoff win over the Phillies last night. It was Wright’s eighth career walkoff RBI, tying him with Kevin McReynolds for the most in franchise story.

MVP caliber performance? You’re darn Wright!

In the home half of last night’s come from behind victory over the Phillies, New York Mets third basemen David Wright capped off the rally with his third hit of the game , a bloop single that dropped just in front of Phillies right fielder Hunter Pence.  The two-out RBI single plated Jordany Valdespin from third as the Mets collected their fourth walk-off victory of the year...

Ruben: He’s Not Just a Sandwich. He’s Our Shortstop

Ruben Tejada has been fantastic at the top of the Mets lineup. Let’s hop in our blue and orange Delorean and type in the date Dec 4 2011.  Now let’s get this bad boy up to 88 mph (faster than a Chris Young fastball), and go back in time. “John from Queens, you’re on the FAN”, comes over the radio as the car appears on Roosevelt Ave.  ”Tanks fuh takin’ my cawl.  Tuh...

MVP Chants For Wright Are Not Unfounded

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. “It seems like all year we’ve had that never...

Los Mets Rally Cut Short In 8-7 Loss To Cubs

Every pitcher has one of those days, and today, Johan had one of those days. Mets just cannot seem to beat the Cubs as they couldn’t finish their late inning rally, losing 8-7. Johan Santana simply just did not have it today. And unfortunately, he didn’t have enough back up to cushion the blow. He gave up seven earned runs, five runs being from three different homeruns he gave...

Cameraman makes nice one-handed catch

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...

Mets 6, Phillies 5

David Wright singled off Jonathan Papelbon with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning, lifting the New York Mets to a 6-5 comeback victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday night that preserved R.A. Dickey's 11-game winning streak. Daniel Murphy lined a shot off Papelbon's leg for the tying run with two outs, setting the stage for Wright. Cole Hamels outlasted...

Mets rally in 9th to beat Phillies

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...

Chicago Cubs (31-51) @ New York Mets (45-38)

The Cubs are tied or the worst record in the Majors, and they bring their continued struggles to Citi Field to close out the first half of the year against the Mets. Keeping a grip on second place in the National League East, the Mets are fresh off one of their most momentous wins of the year against Philadelphia last night and will look to enter the 2012 All-Star break in style...

Game Preview: Cubs @ Mets

The Cubs and Mets start their last series before the All-Star break tonight as the Mets look for revenge from the last Cubs/Mets series. Last night the Mets were on the verge of losing the series against the Phillies when the offense started a real, 2012 Mets style ralley and with a some good AB’s they got the runs in. Anyway, Johan Santana looks to keep the energy levels up as...

There's A Disappointment Here Somewhere

I'm glad the Mets came back and made a game of this. Not so much for the "heart" or the "grit" that the Mets showed, but because when it was 7-2 in favor of the Cubs it was a sure thing that the knives were being sharpened to call this the dreaded "let down" game. And it wasn't. The loss to the Cubs was simply a case of Johan Santana not having...
